This month we are going to give you a chance to play with our new app server as we have an AS7 hackathon. This is a hands on coding session but there will be team leaders to explain what is going on if you are not an app server guru. Apologies for the late notice, unfortunately I've been rather distracted by an illness in the family. We should be back to normal next month when we are intending to show how you can get AS7 running in the cloud.
It was nice to see so many new faces last night, hope you enjoyed it. As promised here is the link to the keynote . This page also contains links to the blogs about the technology behind the keynote demo.
The Developers Conference, JUDCON preceeded JBoss World. Several of the presentations were recorded, if you are interested the slides and videos can be found here .
Next months talk will be about the JBoss World keynote demo. We will recreate the demo and discuss the technologies used to build it. The demo went down a storm at jboss world so it should be another good session.
This will be held in the Inex building again. Kevin Conner will give a talk on AS7. Those of you who have downloaded the early betas will already know that this release is rather different to previous ones.
Also coming up is JBoss World and JUDCon which is the developer conference. JUDCon will be happening on May 2nd and 3rd in Boston.Details can be found here . As a jbug member you can get discounted entry, please let me know if you are interested. As per usual JBoss World and the Redhat Summit follow JUDCon, if you are interested in those events details can be found here .
The second Newcastle Jbug is trying a different Venue to the first one so if you were at the first one please make sure you have read these directions. We are trying this change of venue as it makes the logistics easier but access is slightly more comlicated. There will be someone on the door from 5:45 to 6:15 to let you in, if you are arriving outside those times then please let me know.
This months talk on Byteman is more technical than last months overview and if people wish there will be some practical demonstrations on how to use it afterwards. If you have a partiular problem that you think that Byteman will solve then bring along a laptop with the code on and we will give do our best to solve it.
