Blog Archive for fabriziogiudici during January 2009

In my previous blog I've posted a wrong URL (it was the URL of the next article, which is still a non public draft). I've fixed the link. Thanks to NBDT fellow Antonio Vieiro for having notified the error.
After the series "Idioms for the NetBeans Platform", I've started a new series on DZone about "Designing APIs on the NetBeans Platform". This new thread is focused on a specific API of blueMarine (the Metadata API) which is self-contained and thus suitable to be discussed also for didactic purposes. As usual, this stuff is not 100% related to NetBeans - lots of design issues are discussed....
The 2009 edition of Devoxx (former JavaPolis) will be held in November (16-20) instead of December, as shown in the web site of the conference (and announced in the latest newsletter). Chances of having some more degrees and photographing Bourgogne and Champagne-Ardenne with a somewhat better weather :-) Also the fewer chances of driving through a snow storm are appreciated. Thanks BeJUG!...
DZone has just published my first post in the series "Idioms for the NetBeans Platform". It's a series focused on the idioms I've found useful during the development of blueMarine, and that I'd like to consolidate and catalog in a serious way in the NetBeans Wiki in the following months. The more feedback I get, the better. Also, don't think that they are 100% related to NetBeans - while the term...

Three meetings have been planned, starting this evening. More details at http://www.jugmilano.it/vqwiki/jsp/Wiki?IntoTheGroovy. Technorati Tags: JUG Milano,...
Let me remind interested people that on January 24 there will be the third edition of the Rome JavaDay. The JavaDay is an initiative held by several italian JUGs that organize a special meeting once in a year. Some JavaDays are indeed small conferences and especially the one in Rome is, if you consider that last year they got one thousands of attendees (1200 if I remember well). This year there...
Happy new year to everybody. Continuing an initiative that I started one year ago, I'd like to draw a summary of my 2008 and express my intended plans for 2009, just in case this can be inspiring for other people wanting to go the open source way in the "poor man" mode like me. Summing up things from 2007 for a comparison: blueMarine impacted with a 12% loss on gross profits (while other 10% was...
