JSFOne 2008 ended on Saturday, and I have to say it was a wonderful show, even if it the whole thing seemed entirely too surreal. (When you're on the move and exhausted, and there's a flurry of activity around you, things tend to feel that way.) We had excellent speakers, attendees, and wonderful execution from the NFJS crew. For more details, check out my JSFCentral blog entry about the show....

Special thanks to Carl and Dick for a fun JavaPosse interview last week about JavaServer Faces and the JSFOne conference, which starts tomorrow. (Tor and Joe -- you were there in spirit!) Despite the joys of Skype dropping the call every minute or two, we managed to have a nice little chat. We even got into JSR 273 "(not) JavaBeans 2.0" and JSF tooling in general -- two areas the Posse members...

Since I'm about to hop in another plane, I thought I'd mention that I'm doing a few stops with the No Fluff Just Stuff tour this Fall. I'm presenting a few talks about JSF (surprise!) covering the JSF Ecosystem, JBoss Seam, AJAX and JSF, and Spring and JSF integration (you can find a full list on the NFJS site). I just finished stops in St Louis and Atlanta. Next up is Minneapolis (this weekend...

I'll be conducting two days of public JSF training next week at Open Source Live! next week in Sacramento, California. Just as in October of last year, this hybrid training/conference event will also cover Spring and Hibernate (Chris Richardson), AJAX with JSF (Max Katz), and JPA/EJB 3 (P. Vilas Tulachan). The price is pretty good for three days of training, and there's a few slots left, so...

I had the pleasure of speaking at JavaPolis 2006 in Antwerp, Belgium right before the holidays. And I must say, it was an excellent conference -- definitely one of the best I've been to. My session was about different AJAX/JSF toolkits ("Look Ma, No JavaScript"), and the audience was very savvy -- always a good thing. I must point out a couple of excellent videos that have come out: JavaPolis...

I must admit I'm a big fan of periodicals. I'm a magazine junkie. I've gotten into arguments with my wife about the pile of magazines on the coffee table (now we have a six-foot tall magazine rack instead). I regularly read SD Times, InfoWorld, Dr. Dobb's Journal, JavaPro, JDJ (which finally got good), and others at times (such as ASP.NET Pro, Wired, Business 2.0, Entrepreneur, Black Enterprise,...

There are only a few major events in the Java universe each year. The most obvious one is JavaOne, but another major one is TheServerSide Java Symposium. This conference seems to get bigger and better each year. Even though I spoke at TSS' Java in Action conference last fall, I missed their Symposium last year. Fortunately, this year they were kind enough to extend me a speaking invitation. This...

I have the privilege of speaking at Chariot Solution's Emerging Technology Conference in Philadelphia, PA on March 16th. Chariot has pulled together an excellent group of people to discuss hot new technologies and the way the technology landscape is changing. Here's the official description: This conference features an IT executive track covering the strategic impact of up and coming...

So, if you ever read this blog, you may have noticed that I don't blog very frequently. However, I really enjoy writing (which is a good thing since I get paid to do it). I often think about blog entries and roll them over in my head. Unfortunately, a very small percentage of my in-memory blogs ever make it to disk. In both personal and professional life, I generally attempt to resolve an issue...

It was a pleasure to present at the Northern Virginia Software Symposium over the weekend. The conference was in Reston, VA -- about 15 minutes from where I spent my formative years. The DC area has a lot of fond childhood memories for me, so it was a neat experience to return there as a presenter. I taught four classes: Introduction to Portlets In late 2003, the Java Community Process...

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. And, after three nights of little sleep and the second requisite hangover, I must admit that I was happy that the final day had arrived. The morning started with a "Communities,...

I began the second day of TheServerSide symposium with the morning's Power of Patterns keynote by Compuware's Mike Burba. In front of a full room, Mike discussed patterns as a general concept beyond the basic GoF and J2EE patterns we often think about. He defined them as common solutions to common problems in a given context, noting that they exist at the domain, platform and application levels....

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. This only my second time in Vegas (the last time was 14 years ago) but from what I can tell, the Venetian's theme (Venice) errs more on the side of luxury than...
