I just got back from Antwerp, Belgium, where I attended this year's JavaPolis conference. It was awesome, and I am really sorry I didn't make it till the end, but I had to be back in DÃ¼sseldorf and finish some stuff at work. I got the chance to meet lots of interesting people - I had a dinner with all the JUG leaders, Java Champions, and James Gosling . I also shared my lunch with Vincent Massol , a really good friend of mine and also an open-source celebrity ;-). I also met in person with Peter Pilgrim , Vincent Brabant , Stephen Colebourne , Michael Van Riper and of course Aaron Houston, who was so nice to invite me on a dinner with Nichole Scott and Michael van Riper. Some pictured from the square after the dinner can be found here . I also met Raffaella Sanna and Antonio Pintus from Sardegna Java User Group - you guys rock!
I have to say that I really had a great time and I am looking forward to the next JavaPolis, but before that, I want to visit the ApacheCON in Amsterdam and the Jazoon in Zurich. So hope to see you all somewhere there.
