I blog this, because shocked with Oracle's Corporate Fair new "program" in our area, Asia Pasific, and feel that our 12 years work is like never seen. Strange what Oracle doing in headquarter, and why all the Sun report from pre-acquzition never come to his office.. I am glad somone can send this blog to him. and change his "status" of this country, Indonesia to a better place.. rather a country that "need" to know what is Java.
This is a blog related to my 12 years Java experience and movement..
This is an Indonesian Java Movement from my side and perspective, and several milestone that important in Java movement in Indonesia.. please dont redo what we did.
?2000 - first under the Java Research Prodesain Indonesia PT (Spin off a lot of PT Intercitra, PT Adelva Solusindo (operator 21 cineplex.com, one of top 10 hottest dotcom in the country right now).) I held CTO in this company. PT is company... we use PT as inc. here..
2001 - Started Cimande open source project, which under BlueOxygen.org, hosted in SourceForge. http://www.sf.net/projects/cimande
2002 - Standing Intercitra company that provides support for the project Cimande, and create solutions Aconix (Content Management), the solution grow in 2012, we have more than 50, and the ecosystem grow as standard education linked with Java..
2003 - Cahya Ratih, Erwin from VEDC, Hendra & Friends from UI came to Intercitra for internship, one of the job makes a neat Cimande. Cahya did debugging.. and we shocked this work become our national work 3 years from this year.
March 2003, born JUG Indonesia, origin name is JavaJob Indonesia, a Java job search mechanism for Intercitra
2005 - Frans Thamura a Java Champion, one of the world's first Java Champion (there are 25 people at the time).
2006 - Becomes a member of the committee JENI (Java Education Network Indonesia). Material distributed at one http://space.meruvian.org . With 15 000 Pupils cover 168 and some vocational Poltek throughout Java. Irena and Nana Internship Meruvian one child, entered Kick Andy, for teaching Java in Vietnam.
Reference for JENI:
or can access to the website http://www.jeni.or.id..
JENI adopted the JEDI material developed by Sun and UPH Philippines. http:///jedi.java.net, as well as incorporating some of the stack to facilitate product development, one of which Cimande project. I believe JEDI also adopts well in Brazil, and move to Vietnam, take a look the work http://www.jediproject.net
2007 - I was elected as Oracle Ace Director, one of the first in Asia Pacific, because the reference of the Oracle Sydney, David Forden the Director of Asia Pasific.
2008 - Birth JARC (Asean Java Research Center), to areas of Southeast Asia and Jtechnopreneur, where one pengeola JARC is Cahya Ruth, plus juniors Rizal Adompo (Also ex Internship Intercitra 2005). Entrepreneurial opportunities roadshow to 8 cities from Jakarta to Surabaya.
JARC teach Java in 11 countries under the SEAMEO (concoritium from 11 ministries of education around south east asia).
Java Program presentation in Washington DC (KScope), at the invitation of Oracle HQ, as one of the update of the global Oracle Ace Director. thx for Justin/Vicky Team that allowed me to speak there, under Ace Director Internal Meeting and GAthering.
2009 - Frans Thamura part of team to create a spectrum of modern curricula for vocational schools, and includes Java as the main stack of ICT education programming and Indonesia. take a look of the curriculum here
Oracle Indonesia appointed Frans Thamura Oracle Academy mentor for Java area, signed by Oracle Indonesia CEO, and every meeting, the CEO came.. until his resign and join EMC, Adi Rusli.
Meruvian working with Gunadarma to manage the Business Incubator Center and curriculum development "Java" as a pilot project implementation of E-Stock Aptikom. I am personally part of the Incubator since 2003. the curriculum between Gunadarma and Meruvian is an implementation of E-Bursa from APTIKOM (Association of higher schools in Indonesia, with member more than 600 universities and polytechnis) .
this is the slide that explain E-Bursa. http://www.slideshare.net/flatburger/ebursa-presentation-22-dec-2008
2010 - Presentation of the movement of Java in Indonesia in Beijing JavaOne, Oracle at the invitation of Sydney.
http://www.slideshare.net/flatburger/java-movement-in-indonesia-javaone-beijing-2010-jug-meeting, you can see here also the letter from Oracle Indonesia regarding to Oracle Academy.
2011 - Gorontalo Polytechnics and Meruvian become partner, We create a modern polytechnic curriculum, and ready to be submitted to the Higher Education, to be a national curriculum Poltek.
This year, first company to dinakodai by the "student" of Meruvian is Mervotura. (Nita Puspita and Mila Yuliani) -> see her in Java Magazine next march :)...oopps this march.
Edy, an apprentice Meruvian, got a merit award in INAICTA (Indonesia ICT Award), and the first champion in Indonesia Android Competition, I believe the first Enterprise product in the ICT Award under highschool category.
Take a look Edy's slide.. in slideshare here.. the link
JDuchess Indonesia was born, the first Java community for women, founded by Meruvian heroine, Mila, Nety, and Senja ( http://www.jduchess.or.id ), with the establishment and support of the Global JDuchess, Agnes Crepet. JUG Leaders from Lyon France. Yes, Agnes recommended the girls to be part of Java Magazine, thx to Justin to make them in the magazine.. (They loved the photographer that Oracle sent from Milan.. wow.. awesome...).
2012 - Mila Yuliani and Nety into Java Magazine as a recommendation of Agnes Crepet (JDuchess Franches), after visiting Meruvian Agnes in 2011, evaluating the curriculum Indonesia and said the curriculum is better than France, but still less complete than the French industry (Spesalisasi Agnes is Agile) .
Oracle Indonesia under Asia Pasific direction, choose Indonesia, China and India as a pilot project for Java, and will introduce Java to this country...
(NB: I am working with Indian company, in part of the biggest integration between ministery that linking 77 ministeries under one system, also with Korean, Malaysian companies in this work, one of the biggest loan from our goverment for create and implement a system..all based on Java).
JENI like work with JENE umbrella also try to be adopted in Egypt.. take a look from Ahmed work in Slideshare..here
This year is a good year for Meruvian, after 6 years work, now the student can achieve as winner in national competition, but we still have problem send them to APICTA for Asia Pasific ICT competition, because dunno why. Merit Award could be sent to Asia Pasific. but cant... I wish APICTA global organizer read my blog.
Edy is a 15 years, when in competition happen, he was still 2 year in vocational highschool (secondary school).
He create an amazing project using REST, Struts2, Hibernate and also create AJAX like using JQuery, with Android edition also for submit leave. The project called Aliber, the good news, it hosted in Java.net since the first commit (joining a migration project for all Meruvian projects to Java.net). Read my last blog here
Aliber is a leave management solution, which come when student always extend the leave without explanation. Which that is not good.
If u see his parent revenue, which i believe less than US$ 10 for working a day..he is amazing son, isnt it. Yes, my job to make he become the one, and can pass the jTechnopreneur program, create his company (start from his Aliber), and become global player one day.
I blog this, may be this experience can inspire all of you in another country, and may be we can working together. or may be Oracle start from JAva.net can work together also, because we can create hundreds people like Edy globally. and Edy can inspire people anywhere..
This education project start from JENI (Java Education NEtwork Indonesia) http://www.jeni.or.id, and we extend to www.jtechnopreneur.com (add Android, REST).
for more information of this activities can visit http://www.facebook.com/meruvian.
Dont forget to checkout Edy's work in Aliber.java.net and we love to give the project feedback.
I hear that Aliber 2.0 will adopt Activiti, to replace leave approvral process (which right now based on manual/database) rather advanced workflow (dynamic workflow).
Aliber is OpenSource project, with Apache License..
If you want to know more about Aliber, Edy has created a complete manual, take a look this.
and Aliber's presentation also.
Edy also part of development Syariah application, take a look.
Indonesia (and I believe in most the emerging country and less educated country -- of course corrupted country--) is the hard selling country, i know this model from my friend who lead the milions dollar sales business, a local brand that become of the strong brand in the country. U can see his ads all over the city where I stay, Jakarta, and I dare non technology, except may be Sun has only one ads in near Gatot Subroto Street, years ago.
Like or not the software industry, where i stay here, and try to get the cake, in last 10 years of community development, i just met Microsoft, in that time Risman, founder of .NET User Group and now Director of DEP in Microsoft Indonesia, the only serious company in community development, years we fight, and in last 2 years we share pain of development.
Strange thing, .net opportunity more strong in another country near here, like Malaysia and Singapore, Where is Java? esp most of the country speak OpenSource, but can we trust their goverment. I visited Kuala Lumpur, mostly citizen there speak about smiliar like what we talk here, Corruption. Risman said that .net community now one program with MUGI, which i see in several cities still active vs the JUG that getting less active, including JUG Indonesia where i found. The Java big aura still in uncertain, esp with no clear direction of Java insire Oracle, J7 is a milestone for next Java, but we agree that J8 is the new start.. mmm still years to wait.
Interesting happen also here, esp after one vocational highschool change the "Oracle Academy" becomes "jTechnopreneur", basically it is a rebranding version of JENI program from our goverment, which also dead-end. But the program also still not a mainstream, because the ministery that related to education still in transformation, and more-more people from there go to jail because corruption.
Strange thing happen, in most of the country near here, people asking all programmer, .net or Java, and i can see several companies growing, but i am also get the different behavior of subsidiary, esp in both Malaysia and Indonesia, where i am working on now. Strange, how can they different. esp the companies related to Java.. u know whom..!!
Can hear the real community program in this region, esp for news short press release in media, show me the name of the manager.
Please also compare the community event (ApacheCon, EclipseCon), mostly in Europe and America, but we know Asia Pasific is the biggest place for human stay, i believe almost 2/3 all human stay in that area.
My head said that, develop this area is like develop monster? is that right? that why mostly vendor doing a hard selling, less total education, and in our country, vendors + goverment success create a shifting education, putting a lot of their product as main educaiton program, and because only doing a short term press release in media, in several years back, the output getting worst. Who will be blamed for this? the direct impact of course the implementation of their product. Can hear a scalable implementation in last 5 years in this country? why are they not massive? if the education is the program to create massive expert.
Should we the community leader work by our self, and in several case compete very hard with a program that vendors create, esp the brand holder. to create a better ecosystem?
I still dont get how a hard selling business, can grow community?
We just working with a little documentation for our internship and internal people inside Meruvian dan networks, for make a standard development. We use Java.net for presure because mostly our work is Java based, we think Android is also Java based.. :)
I am personally still dunno the repositioning about Java.net, where will Java.net move, and will it become the best Java development server in the world. Which we know Oracle is the lover of #1 slogan, #1 in every thing, u can see this word in Oracle OpenWorld, I saw this since 2007, when i visited first time in OpenWorld. Thx make me Oracle Ace Director, so I can feel that experience.
Become #1 is the ambitious thing, where in my personal positioning is try to "survive" rather "#1", even we know our JUG Indonesia is the most mainstream community for programming, and the program under it, one of the most fenomenal one and ambitious one.. even we know Oracle in emerging country like Indonesia, still sales with 3paybill. Sorry Oracle, that is the fact..
So, Java movement is like alone in a novoid (Ben10 dimension.. hehe), but glad the global positioning Java make it mainstream.
A lot of things inside Java.net are things that we use daily, esp Nexus, JIRA, and SVN (we still stupid in GIT, wanna to help??).
I am waiting the architecture of Java.net, esp ORacle said using Kenai, a cloud platform, using JRuby etc. this may be an intersting things, esp we cannot know the Google Code architecture, may be the system can become our reference to develop Java based solution, but we know. still no Java things like this blog in Java.net.
That will be awesome if we can use Java.net account as FB like account.
esp in java.net there is openjdk, the thing that we must monitor..
Right now, when i write this blog, i am in Kuala Lumpur, just visited Code Android Malaysia Gathering, and meet a lot of CEO, and shocked the "requirement here". I wont explain more lar.
so where do u wanna to go today? kekeke. i used microsoft's slogan.. :)
