You can tell that it is almost time.
The snow is melting... the sun is coming out more often... you start to wear some of your lighter jackets, and you can just tell that Spring is coming. This also means that we are very near to kicking off the inaugural DevNation conference in San Francisco, California.
This is going to be a sensational event with leading speakers from all over the development world. Check out this star studded cast, and this are but a few; Gene Kim (Tripwire), Tim Fox (JBoss), James Pearce (Facebook), Kris, Brochers (JQuery), Gavin King (JBoss), Jeremy Edberg (Netflix), and many more. Check out the jam packed agenda and register to join us today.
Developer in the Wild
On the road again and who should I run into, but the lead of the Uberfire project, Jonathan Fuerth. He is Canadian (all good), does wicked impressions from The Great White North album (comedy), is somewhat of an authority on brewing your own beer (has pictures of his brewery), and has a keen interest in unit tests (just ask him!).
Special attention has been given this week to more JBoss DevNation with reports:
- JBoss Forge at DevNation
- Ceylon at DevNation
- Fabric at DevNation
- CDI & Mobile at DevNation
- Mark Little on DevNation
- OpenShift at DevNation
Lucas Holmquist is talking at MobileWeek in NYC April 14th, if you are interested he might be able to get you in but need find him and ask nicely.
