Today I got a very valuable chance to teach a graduate class at Georgia Tech , it is interesting because I am just starting my graduate classes this fall . It was a guest lecture about Web services and Axis2. Professor Calton Pu , has to attend a conference so he requested me to do a guest lecture in his class today. I know teaching Axis2 is not such a difficult task for me , because most of the time I live with Axis2. But teaching a graduate class was bit of challenge for me , and second it made me somewhat nervous because that was the first time I did a lecture in a university. Anyway I believe I tried my best to make it simple , since the class consist of people from different areas. Teaching Web services to graduate who is doing research on Robotics or Multimedia is kind of dull job , its not there interest area.

It is almost four years we have started Axis2 , withing this small time period Axis2 has became the de-factor Java Web service framework. A number of large companies uses Axis2 in production , while well know universities are using Axis2 for various research purposes. Regardless of the usage of Axis2 , when we start Axis2 there were only five full time people working on the project. Which included , Srinath Perera , Eran Chinthaka , Ajith Ranabahu, Chathura Herath and myself. We all did our best to make what we were doing a great product. And now we can happy we have done something useful.
The most important thing is all of the initial people who wrote Axis2 , are now doing their graduate studies in USA. I personally consider that as a great achievement as far a project is concerned. Now Axis2 is a rich project with hundred of developers , let's wait and see how many more people from Axis2 will come to do the graduate studies.
