Google books

Now here's a book I haven't seen in a long time! Three of the authors were/are professors at the University when I was doing my PhD and several of the others visited regularly. A great book and still relevant today!

JBossWorld 2009

It's almost upon us! This year is unique for a couple of reasons: first we're holding the event at the same time and location as Red Hat Summit, which means we could have some interesting audience cross-overs, and second because this will be my first time as CTO since taking over from Sacha!

This year I'm giving a session on our work on testable architectures as well as my keynote. Normally I don't have any difficulties preparing presentations for conferences and workshops. I've done several keynotes in the past for other events, but never one in my current role. It's quite daunting, given the various people I'm following in this role. Maybe it's the masocist in me, but I'm looking forward to it. Now if only I could finish the blasted presentation!

Back and into the fray

Back from vacation and just spent two days catching up on email (lots of things ignored on the assumption that if they're important I'll see them again!) Now getting ready for JBoss World!
