Corresponding to the event, selected 50 local university students have given a valuable opportunity of participating WSOConf 2011 under a highly affordable package, which will surely give a value added opportunity to their carriers and interests. Although i am still a university student, i was very fortunate to participate the whole conference week for free as a team member due to my internship at WSO2 at the moment. I specially hope to participate on 'Introduction to OSGI' and 'Introduction to Web and SOA Security' sessions which i hope as essentials in getting familiar with WSO2 products. Also very much looking forward to attend in 'Advanced Concepts in WS-BPEL' session presented by my team members of WSO2 BPS team.
Here are the key speakers who are going to address WSO2Conf 2011.
