Some quick updates about Kicking Butt with MIDP and MSA book, Marge Podcast at JavaOne and M3DD 2008 Call For Papers.
I am in a rush, like you, that probably are too. Who told us to chose a computing related profession?! Medicine changes once a century! But, because our world is dynamic, here it goes some quick updates that I can't miss:
- Kicking Butt with MIDP and MSA
Some weeks ago I finally have finished reading Kicking Butt with MIDP and MSA (thanks Aaron Houston and Mark DeHart for the copy). If you are new to Java ME, get a copy, if you are not, get a copy too. The book is very practical and interesting. It talks about all the JSRs that are part of MSA, so it is definitely very useful. Right now, there is a nice podcast at M&E with the author, Jonathan Knudsen.
- Marge Podcast
Lucas Torri and I gave a mini talk about Marge at Community Corner during JavaOne. It became a podcast and the slides are here . Take a look if you interested in JSR 82!
- M3DD CFP
M&E will be hosting the second version of an event that get a new word and its name became Mobile, Media & Embedded Developer Days 2008. The event will be at Santa Clara Auditorium on November 12-13, 2008. The event is getting bigger, so do not miss the Call For Papers, which has already started and runs until September 15, 2008. For more information, read Roger Brinkley's entry and go to https://developerdays.dev.java.net .
That's it for today! Let's go! Let's go! :)
