I attended the sun tech day in london recently and coincidentally, we had a windows presentation on the .NET framework at my university. That got me thinking, what do i concentrate on. Sun Studio or .NET, they provide similar services like web services, mobility, etc. Has anyone got anything to say to this?
You have posted this at JavaRanch, so I would say SUN. In the field of technology SUN and Microsoft are 2 competitive giants and there are a lot of clients who use different or both the technologies..... The reasons why I favour Java/SUN are: 1. To learn/get to know a piece of the new technology, I do not have to spend money, except for the hardware and Microsoft for the OS. 2. There are more number of open source projects related to Java becoming popular now. These tools constitute a better technology and reflect the true efforts and innovation of many developers across the world. 3. The specifications/the evolution of Sun's technology itself is for the people, of the people and by the people of the Java community.
Being a Java fan, What more can I say?
By the way, I wonder how expensive is the SUN Tech conference for an individual to attend :roll: [ March 13, 2004: Message edited by: Vish Kumar ]
