Tomorrow the London Java Community (LJC) meets for the monthly Meet a Project night. I'll be there again, this time to explain how to get started contributing to Hibernate Search and answer all the questions you might have about the mysterious world of open source professionals.
We're in Boston for JUDCon and Red Hat Summit; Emmanuel is on stage coding live a nice new demo using Hibernate Search to combine full-text with geographic filtering. It will be contributed to JDF quickstarts but you can already get the sources.
If you travel in the JBoss universe you should be aware that Red Hat Summit and
JUDCon are taking place
in Boston between June 10th and June 14th. If you want to meet the persons behind
the code, that's a pretty good deal.
Recently I had the chance to give a talk on Bean Validation 1.1 at Berlin Expert Days (BED-Con), a nice mid-sized conference (2 days, 500 attendees) hosted at Freie Universität in Berlin. As in the last years, BED-Con was a great experience with awesome people and many insightful talks in the fields of Java EE, NoSQL, Continuous Delivery etc. I really can recommend this event which is planned to take place next year again.
I will be at Devoxx this year again - this starts to
look like a pilgrimage ;). But I am particularly excited as I have given it
a participating twist: less @OneToMany talks more @Code and @ManyToMany
interactions. What can you expect from Devoxx?
