Welcome to another week in the world of JBoss.org, a quiet week as is the tradition of reflection this week. Let me explain this...
This week we again catch you up with the news in our world of JBoss. This time we do it a bit different. This is a week in North America, specifically in the United States where everyone has a short work week (four day weekend, can you imagine?!). Thanksgiving is upon us and it is not only a tradition involving big ol' turkey dinners, football (American style) on the television and gathering together with your families. It is a time to reflect on what you are thankful for in your lives.
We have much to be thankful for in the world of JBoss. Not only are we thankful for the chance to better our daily lives by working on, coding, improving, brainstorming and contributing to our projects, but we have one of the best communities in the open source world. This is not about the core JBoss editorial editing team being thankful, it is about you being a part of it all. You the contributor, you the member, you the user should all take time and be thankful for all that is possible in this community we have built together.
So kick back, grab another turkey leg and enjoy this weeks JBoss news. It is not as busy as usual, but next week we will be back in full force!
Kris Verlaenen from the jBPM project has been touring the JBUGs in Sydney (November 19) and Melbourne (November 20) this week, stay tuned for more on this when he gets over his jet-lag!
