For the last day of the conference, keynote speakers for the morning sessions were Gregor Hohpe from Google Inc. and Narendra Nathmal from Cognizant Technologies. Gregor Hohpe discussed about his experience on enterprise integration patterns and its past, present and future. Narendra Nathmal talked on "SOA & Beyond: Using Open Source Technologies".
During the last day of the conference, several speakers told their stories on their work related to WSO2.
It was amazed to see how people use open source software and build new stuff and contribute back to the community back. One of my favorite project was "Advanced Business Process Instance Monitoring in WSO2 Carbon" by David Schumm who is a research assistant from Institute of Architecture of Application Systems (IAAS), Germany.

In the track 01 some of other speakers were Maria Belkina who talked about her project management experience of using WSO2 products for e-Government infrastructure in Russia. Mifan Careem, CTO from Raspere talked on "Multi-tenancy and Cloud Computing for eGoverment Services". Jorge Infante Osorio, from Universidad de las Ciencias Informáticas, Cuba; talked about his experience in with SOA and the WSO2 Suite.
On the track 02, Chathuri Wimalasena spoke on "Develop, Test and Deploy your SOA Application through a Single Platform". And then Charitha Kankanamge discuss on "Quality - The key to successful SOA", which gave an insight on QA methodologies, tools etc., used in SOA.
Simon Bilton, Head of Professional Services, Gödel Technologies Europe and Neeraj Satija,Software Development Manager, Two Degrees Mobile Limited also shared their experiences in WSO2 SOA platform.
Finally Samisa Abeysinghe, Director of Engineering at WSO2 talked on "Engineering to take over the world" which is about the "controversial" :) software engineering process at WSO2. One of the most interesting talk for the whole conference.
Final keynote speech was delivered by Paul Fremantle, Founder & CTO WSO2. He revealed the WSO2 vision and road-map for the next few years.
Then at the closing ceremony, some of the WSO2 folks who took the lead at WSO2Con-2011 were appreciated and then a music group called, "Bathiya & Santhush" rocked the audience with some pop/rap music :).
