You might have noticed that posts slowed down here after my talk at JavaZone, which is because I took some time off to see Scandinavia. But I’m back now and getting ready for even more upcoming events! Just a quick review:
- San Francisco Java Meetup - I’ll be speaking here again, this time about Resin’s OSGi container implementation, as well as general OSGi issues along with fellow Java Meetup regular, Andrew Headrick. This is just one week away on Monday, Oct 6 at 6:30. The signups are full right now, but keep an eye on the page in case anyone drops out…
- Resin Administration Training - There are still a couple of spots left for this course, so sign up ASAP to guarantee your seat. I’ll be teaching this at Marakana’s facility in San Francisco on October 22-24. It should be an action packed 3 days!
- Silicon Valley Code Camp - This informal, but highly technical conference is growing by leaps and bounds. With already over 500 signups, I expect the Code Camp to be a ton of fun and very successful. I’ll be speaking on Quercus and BAM, so stop by for those and the other speakers’ talks on Nov 8 & 9 at Foothill College.
- Devoxx - You might know this as JavaPolis or briefly JaVoxx, but the newly renamed Devoxx is still the same great conference that attracts developers from all over the world. It will be held Dec 8-12 in Antwerp, Belgium. I’ll be giving a talk there and Caucho is a plugin partner, so look for us on the convention floor as well.

I’ve arrived at JavaZone in Oslo, Norway and I’ve been having quite a good time so far. The morning’s entertainment, a band that employed banging on dishwashers, freezers, and other loud boxes, was very rousing. The talks seem to be well attended as well, so I’m eager to see how many people show up for my talk on Quercus later today (Zone V, 15:45). There are also live projected videos of each speaker in the main hall and I just overheard someone say that you can point your headphones at each video to hear different speakers! The organizers have also set up a whiteboard area so that speakers and attendees can talk and brainstorm after the presentations. You can find me there after my talk…

I’m up doing research about the latest happenings in the Quercus community and thought I’d point out an interesting project that just popped up. Helma is “an open source web application framework for fast and efficient scripting and serving of your websites and Internet applications.” Daniel Ruthardt has just created a plugin that allows Helma to take advantage of PHP using Quercus. It’s still early on, but the project looks very promising.
Are you using Quercus either in production, as the foundation of a project, or in some other interesting way? Please comment and let us know about it! I’m collecting interesting cases for my JavaZone talk, so if you let me know this week, you might be featured!

I’m going to be speaking at JavaZone this month about Quercus. If you don’t know JavaZone, it’s Scandinavia’s largest developer conference and will be half in English and half in Norwegian. If you’re in Oslo on September 17 at 3:45pm, stop on by and have a listen. This is a developers’ conference, so I’m going to take some liberties and dive into some real technical meat with code examples and an inside look at how Quercus works. It should be really fun.
