IndicThreads.com Conference on Java Technology 2007, Pune, India to provide the platform for cutting edge technology education and discussion.
Indian software businesses have traditionally been driven by the low cost advantage. However with rising costs and a stronger rupee, India no longer is a cheap destination for IT. Hence IT can continue to thrive in India only if India moves up the value chain, works on the latest in technology and develops new technologies of its own.
A prerequisite for this change in IT work is the availability of education in the latest technology as well as a chance to interact with technology thought leaders. India can become a technology leader only if the best IT companies and brains take Indian IT into innovation based businesses.
The annual IndicThreads.com International Conference On Java Technology is an attempt to facilitate this transformation of Indian IT. With over 5 million software developers using Java worldwide, Java is one of the most commonly used software development platforms. The conference is a source of Java knowledge and expertise of international standards. Expert speakers from India, US and Sri Lanka will share their knowledge on the latest in the Java software development space. The event enables learning and exchange of ideas in a fun and interactive environment.
