Apple's World Wide Developer's Conference was going on concurrently with JavaOne last week.
The title of this blog entry was dreamed up independently and before I read Dion's blog entry "The Network Is The Conference". I agree completely with Dion's entry, yet add that it really is bigger than simply the JavaOne conference.
I had the privilege of writing the forward to a new book, Enterprise Java Development on a Budget: Leveraging Java Open Source Technologies. I just got their book in the mail. I'm proud of what I wrote, so I thought I'd share it here.
I came across an interesting blog entry today (see URL reference) that refers to a Sun Java tech tip for generating custom taglets. The example shows linking to Javapedia page for examples. This is slick and deserves some attention, I think.
I had the pleasure of attending and presenting at TheServerSide Symposium last weekend. It was a wonderful event, and I hope many more are to follow! It was done in the same vein as Jay's excellent No Fluff, Just Stuff symposiums, except with vendors getting more air-time.
Immediately after arriving to my hotel, I was
wisked away to the top-secret war room where many of us
set up the first pieces of Javapedia.
After reading this blog, I was reminded of something I wanted to post last week. I came across a blog last week (I cannot remember where I found it - was it a java.net blog? or elsewhere? Post a link in the comments if you know which one I mean).
Scott McNealy suggested, in his keynote this morning, that we replace the word "java" with "sex". What a great thing!
