I recently went to the Sun Java Tech days in Sydney, and I was very disappointed. Many of the sessions were just quick starts to using technologies that probably most of the people there would have an understanding of already. I was looking for insights into things like the future of JPA, instead I got this is how to turn a Java Bean into a JPA entity. Has anyone else had the same experience with Sun events? Is it like this in every country, or just Australia? My full rant about the event can be found here.
