Disclaimer: I've grown up a bit and learned a lot since this blog was started. In the beginning I took tips from the likes of John Chow and Shoemoney and tried to write titles and content for Digg and Reddit. In the end it didn't do me much good and most of it just seems silly looking back. If you're interested anyway, here's what I wrote back then, but take it with a grain of salt.
I won’t be at the TheServerSide Java Symposium this year, but I will be going to JavaOne. To hold me off until then I’m heading down to the Philly Emerging Technologies for the Enterprise at Drexel. It looks like the typical pipe-dream of a java conference with the requisite talks on agile development and web 2.0; although their definition of web 2.0 seem more like RIA with Flex than my preferred definition. As of now, I think I’ll be in the following sessions:
- 10:15 to 11:15 – What’s New in Spring 2.5? by Rossen Stoyanchev
- 11:30 to 12:30 – Grails by Ken Rimple
- 1:30 to 2:30 – Code Generation: The Safety Scissors of Metaprogramming by Giles Bowkett
- 2:45 to 3:45 – Be Careful, Your Java is Showing by Joseph O’Brien
- 10:15 to 11:15 – Applying the Semantic Web Technology to Patient Clinical Data in an Agile Project by Jon Kern
- 11:30 to 12:30 – WS-* vs. REST: Myths, Facts and Lies by Paul Freemantle
- 1:30 to 2:30 – Designing RESTful Rails Applications by Obie Fernandez
- 2:45 to 3:45 – Hibernate Search: Googling Your Domain Model by Emmanuel Bernard
- 4:00 to 5:00 – Introduction to Agile for Traditional PMI Project Managers by Stacia Broderick
- 5:15 to 6:15 – Grails - Agile Web 2.0 The Easy Way by Jeff Brown
Assuming the wireless is working I’ll probably be blogging and/or twittering from the conference so stay tuned for my thoughts!
