Thank you Amit Naik, Atul Kahate, Debu Panda, Dhananjay Nene & Peter Thomas for their contribution to the conference via the IndicThreads Technology Advisory Board.
The IndicThreads.com Conference On Java Technology is the oldest independent event on Java technology in India and the best place in India for independent Java learning & discussion The 4th edition, 2009 conference was held on 11th & 12th Dec 2009 in Pune, India. Have a look at past conferences in 2008, 2007 & 2006 to get a feel for the event.
The conference was scheduled for a most interesting time in the history of Java, when Java was being used more widely than ever before and yet there were also a number of questions being asked of Java. Inline with the state of Java today, the theme for conference 09 was “Turning The Corner”.

Do you blog / tweet regularly on software development issues? Are you an authority on a software development topic? If yes, we would be thrilled to have you at the conference.
