Catch me at JavaOne

Posted by kito75 on June 25, 2005 at 10:08 AM PDT

As I mentioned in an earlier post, at JavaOne this year I'll be presenting a Birds-of-the-Feather session on Monday night (June 27th) at 9:30pm, entitled "The JavaServer Faces Ecosystem".

JavaOne BOF: Exploring the JavaServer Faces Ecosystem

Posted by kito75 on March 31, 2005 at 11:48 AM PST

I suppose all of my networking over the past year has payed off, because my session for JavaOne in June, 2005 has been accepted. Last year I wasn't so lucky, so I was pleasantly surprised to get a confirmation e-mail a couple of weeks ago.

The session will be a Birds-of-the-Feather (BOF) called "Exploring the JavaServer Faces Ecosystem". It'll be in the WebTier track.

The third day of the TSS symposium was short – the last session ended at 4:45pm. This was definitely a Good Thing; no matter how much of a geek you are, Saturday night in Las Vegas has quite a bit of traction.

I began the second day of TheServerSide
with the morning's Power of Patterns keynote by Compuware's

This is the story of my first day at TheServerSide (TSS) Symposium, which was at the Venetian hotel in Las Vegas (where I also stayed). If you haven't heard of the Venetian, it's one of the biggest and most "luxurious" hotels in Vegas.
