A couple of words about Redmonk unConference and the closing NetBeans session.
After being disappointed at the Matisse session , I decided to go seeing what folks were doing at Redmonk. Well, the unconference was interesting and there were discusssions about scripting languages,
invokedynamic and several, several other matters. I reviewed Stephen Colebourne's airplane hack - that he had improved at that time - and made a suggestion to get fewer classes that abstract the period concept. Have I mentioned we will be presenting a BOF, A New Date and Time API for Java Platform, Standard Edition (Java SE) , next Wednesday, 9:55 PM, and that you should add it to your schedule? :-)
At the closing session, James Gosling showed a lot of cool applications built using NetBeans and Bruno Souza called the NetBeans Dream Team to stage, which includes two Brazilians: Vinicius Senger, from GlobalCode and Edgar Silva from JBoss. Here is a picture:
Finally, there was a party and besides meeting a nice Brazilian who works as a VP of software development for JP Morgan, we (Yara, Vinicius and I) have talked to Michael Keith, co-spec lead for EJB 3.0 and what to expect from the future:
So that was it. Hopefully I'll blog about today's morning in a few minutes :-)
