It has been less than a week since JUDCon India ended and I'm still hearing so many good things about the event. In the end I wasn't able to attend (don't ask!) and that only makes me miss the event even more. Whether it's Dimitris telling us about the record number of participants (800!), Jaikiran enthusiastic about the sessions and even taking community Q&A for the Hibernate team, Manik giving his take on it, or one of the many other articles or tweets, it seems that this was probably the best JUDCon ever and certainly the biggest! My thanks go out to all of the people who made this a success: the presenters, the attendees and the organisers. I am glad we took the decision to try India this time and I hope that it won't be the last time we go there. Of course we'll be having another JUDCon with JBossWorld (look out for the Call for Presentations very soon!) but it's important that we move the workshop around so that we can allow much wider participation from our community. So you never know ... maybe JUDCon will be coming to a city near you soon!


I'll leave you with a few images from the event that help to convey the great feeling of participation and community buzz that I think I could feel even from the UK!
