The seminar will deliver expert knowledge on the latest standards and open-source development technologies.
BEA Systems has organised the BEA dev2dev day 2005 at Knowledge Village in Dubai. The one day seminar is expected to significantly benefit the growing developer community in the UAE as it provides expert knowledge on the latest standards and open-source development technologies, as well as focusing on breakthroughs in service-oriented architecture (SOA).
The dev2dev day brings together a large number of enterprise developers that are new to Java, J2EE and BEA WebLogic, and those that build web applications, web services, business processes, portals and developers working with service-oriented architectures. “The BEA dev2dev day, which is held around the world, is an educational event designed to provide developers, architects and IT managers with the knowledge and tools needed to design, build, deploy and integrate enterprise-class applications on the industry-leading BEA WebLogic Platform,” says Diyaa Zebian, general manager of eSolutions BEA in the Middle East and Egypt.
The IT sector in the UAE has witnessed a surge in the recent years, opening up numerous opportunities for the developer community in the region and events such as this provide a much-needed platform to further knowledge of the development framework and help developers to stay abreast of latest standards and technologies.
The BEA dev2dev helps participants learn how to easily develop service-oriented web applications, web services and workflows. It also focuses on visually orchestrating services into business-level processes and ways to use process-driven development to consume workflow services in web applications.
Further, the seminar assists developers to leverage open-source standards and technologies. “The success of the BEA dev2dev day can be assessed by the fact that more 7,500 attendees took part in events in 35 cities around the world. Each year we witness a growing interest in this seminar, highlighting the importance of such an event for the entire developer community, which is looking to adopt the most advanced technologies. We have scheduled to organise dev2dev days on a regular basis in Dubai,” concludes Zebian.
