An Apple-made developer preview for Java 6 on Leopard has reappeared - but these are only marginally good news.
And even JavaPolis 2007 has gone now. Great conference, as usual.
Yesterday I attended for my first time two talks about other languages and language enhancements. I've loosely following those arguments, but now I think it's high time I made a better opinion on them.
Well, this morning I started writing on the blog quite early (8:55), an unusual thing since at that hour either I'm going to a customer or I'm still sleeping :-) but the fire alarm woke me up at 7:25 (and there was smoke smell too!), so at 7:30 I was ready to escape with my photographic gear in one hand and my laptop in the other. Fortunately, the alarm stopped buzzing soon.
Today, at JavaPolis, I'm keeping on attending talks about Java on the desktop. After the classic "Filthy Makeover" by Chet (this time Romain was missing: where are you? ;-) I'm attending Richard Bair talking about Iris.
Well, yesterday the JavaPolis network spell triggered again and - possibly because of a failed router - there were no network available.
I've reached Antwerp for the JavaPolis conference just now, after a three day journey without email. And since I'm fighting against the flu :-( I'll take some time for consuming the queue of messages to answer - of course priority goes to paying customers, so please forgive me if I won't be able to promptly answer you about comments on my blog or anything about my opensource projects.
just a few days ago about the Java Day in Rome,
talking about the event in general. Now I'd like to focus about what
probably was the best talk of the conference.
I've already shared my JavaPolis agenda and the conference looks pretty interesting, even more than previous years.
For some reasons, I'd like to give my JavaPolis presentation with Linux Ubuntu rather than Mac OS X. But I have two showstoppers.
I'm just back from the JavaDay that has been held in Rome last saturday, an initiative from JUG Roma. Just a quick post for now (I've been off for three days in a row and I'm fighting with the hundreds of emails that got accumulated): AWESOME.
