The Java Posse Round Up 2011

03 March 2011 Comments off

2 minutes


The things I enjoyed about this year’s open space conference.

  • Just the enthusiasm and the luck of the draw about being there again.
  • It was heart warming and uplifting to be part of the action
  • Meeting this year’s new people
  • Getting reacquainted with the previous JPR11 attendees
  • Diane Marsh’s Scala Koans
  • Sitting on Bruce Eckel’s easy massaging chair again and meeting Bruce again
  • Making a video recording of the closing session
  • Having the time to make screen cast of JavaFX 2.0 EA
  • Kate Ice House
  • The  Progressive Dinner
  • Doing a Technical Leadership session
  • 4 half days snowboarding

The things I regret about JPR11

  • I did not meet and greet every single individual
  • Missing the Make It Fast technical session
  • Missing my own Future of Client Java session
  • Not getting the Saturday flight for an extra snowboarding Sunday
  • Not knowing if I can make it back next year, and not having that ideal Job / Position
