This year is a little exceptional for me: it’s the first time I attend 2 big technical conferences in a row like that. Last week, Adobe MAX, this week, Devoxx. And all I can tell you is that I love it! I love it as an attendee because those conferences are incredible gatherings of talent and smartness, and because I get to discover exciting technologies that can make my life easier and my software more beautiful. And I love it as a restrained presenter/showman because I envy those who get to introduce all those amazing technologies, and travel all around the world to do so. I’ll do that one day!
Back to Devoxx, I finally built my agenda for this week and it’s very loaded as you can see here or here. My main focuses this year should be:
- JavaFX: because from what I’ve heard, it seems doomed to failure, but I want to make my own opinion and see what it really looks like
- Groovy/Grails: because I’ve gotten hooked to those and I am currently investing a lot of time into learning those technologies, possibly for You And The World and for TagOSpot.
- Random technology watch: topics I don’t have a clue about, but that could enlighten me somehow.
Hopefully, I’ll find some energy left at the end of the day to write a few posts about what I see. Woohooo…
