Random thoughts upon my first day at TSSJS, and their post evening party in the pool area at Caesar's
To round out the day's sessions, I attended two from Cameron Purdy of Tangosol. His first, on peer to peer, was quite excellent, though I expect many found it rudimentary. I, having been so focused on Faces in recent years, found it very informative. It was nice to go back to my old days as a network programmer at NCSA when he talked about IP multicast and its applications to clustering.
Following that talk, was another with Mr. Purdy, this time joined by Patrick Linksy, of SolarMetric. Here they presented their collected wisdom about achieving performance and scalability in a J2EE app. This talk was chock full of war stories, which I found very interesting.
The evening party was quite enjoyable, taking place in the private pool area behind the hotel. It was reserved exclusively for TSSJS guests and featured fine hors â€˜d orderves and an open bar.
