"Ubuntu is the essence of being human. Ubuntu speaks particularly about the fact that you can't exist as a human being in isolation. It speaks about our interconnectedness. You can't be human all by yourself, and when you have this quality - Ubuntu - you are known for your generosity."
The organizers were generous, the sponsors were generous, the speakers were generous and the eclipse community was generous. And what a day it lead to! A day to share the knowledge acquired with years of experience working at Eclipse. We had excellent talks as you can see in the schedule.
Holding the true spirit of FOSS we had free talks and free food - who said its not free beer ;). The organizers had put lot of effort for free - to arrange the venue, print the handouts, host the website.
EclipseBible.com had sponsored the handouts for the event. We offer eclipse training and consulting services. You can find the details at http://training.eclipsebible.com
The organizers were trying the best to cut the costs for the sponsors. Ankur even asked me to print the handouts (schedule + speaker bio) in black and white to keep the cost less which I had to happily reject. The elegance of the eclipse should reflect even in the handouts distributed to the registrants.
People from around 35 companies turned out including Bosch, IBM, Adobe, Google, Wipro, Accenture, and lot of startups.
