JavaOne was good this year but that was just the beginning of traveling for my month of October.
I’m just back from a very well-attended inaugural session at the Lava JUG (in Clermont Ferrand, France) covering Java 7 (together with Julien) and some JavaOne 2011 news. The event had 120+ participants. So pictures here. It’s always great to hear about new JUGs popping up close to 15 years after the creation of Java (more on JUGs in a future entry).
This coming week, I’ll be in Romania:
• Cluj Napoca on Wednesday 19th, 2011 in the Golden Tulip Hotel. Send email to register.
• Bucharest on the next day: Thursday 20th, 2011 in the Intercontinental. See event page for details.
The week after (October 27th), I’m participating in fOSSa in Lyon, France. This is, as the name implies, an Free/Libre open source software conference and I’m happy to see that Serli’s Jerome Petit is also listed as a speaker to discuss the benefits he see for his company in their numerous open source contributions (GlassFish and others). Let this talk enlighten many others!
