Well, at this point you should have already bought your ticket, since the conference is sold out as usual. Anyway, it's worth while to remind that in a few weeks Devoxx , the most important Java conference in Europe (in my opinion) will be held.
I'd like to say "see you there", but unfortunately I'm going to miss the conference for the second year in a row. During my trip at JavaOne I've caught a virus - a silly one, but it doesn't want to go away and it is also causing some heavy fatigue, so I'm hardly doing my paid job; consider that I've been unable to commit a single line of code for blueBill or blueMarine in a month! Even speaking at the single-day Soft-Shake  has been hard (and I had to leave early in the afternoon). So, I'll stay at or near home for the next month... hoping for better times.
