Bangalore: BEA Systems, an enterprise and communications infrastructure software company, announced its Dev2Dev Tech Days, an annual developer event series that is opened to all software developers.

This year, the seminar series is being held across six cities starting with Bangalore on June 1, 2007 and running through June 20. The other cities being targeted include Hyderabad, Chennai, Pune, Mumbai and Delhi. The ‘theme’ for the event this year is ‘mashups’ – an application that combines content from more than one source into an integrated experience for the browser. Through these half-day in-depth sessions BEA expects to directly reach out to 1500 developers across these 6 cities.

Dev2Dev Tech Days is an annual series of half day free seminars organized and hosted by BEA Systems global technology experts, for software developers, spanning 40 cities across AMERICAS, EMEA and APAC. This is the 5th consecutive year that the event is being organized in India. Overall, more than 1200 developers/programmers benefited from the event last year.

According to Adam FitzGerald, Director, Developer Marketing, “The event is a re-iteration of our ongoing commitment to the developer community in India. Through this initiative we would like to give Indian developers an insight into the latest technologies and share BEA’s innovations and vision for the future of software development in the country.”

The event acts as a forum for the developer community to receive an update and deliberate on the most recent technology trends and best practices in enterprise software development. The main focus of the discussion will be how mashups are at the heart of new software approaches like social computing, rich Internet applications and Web 2.0.

According to IDC, the Asia Pacific region is set to become the largest market for software developers by 2007-08. IDC predicts that the total number of professional developers worldwide is set to soar over the next few years, from 10.1 million in 2004 to 14.9 million in 2008. Over the course of the last few years, India has emerged as one of the leading centers for offshore product development and captive product development centers given its large talent pool of English speaking IT professionals, including software developers.
