Going to JavaZone

Oslo, Norway I'm pleased to announce that I'll be speaking at JavaZone this year in Oslo, Norway. It's been a couple of years since I've been to Norway, but I've been wanting to go back ever since I left. Not only is Oslo itself awesome, but the people really showed me a good time.

I just bought my tickets, so it's pretty much a sure thing at this point. Even better, like my trip to ApacheCon EU, I'm bringing along some family.

Good ol' Mom and Dad will be joining me - making it my Dad's 4th international trip this year (Tanzania, Panama, Amsterdam/Germany are the previous 3). That's pretty good considering Africa was his only business trip.

Our current plan is to fly in on Sunday, visit the ancestral homeland (Finland) for a couple of days, and then spend Tuesday - Friday (September 11-14) in Oslo. If you're going to JavaZone - I hope to see you there. If you have any suggestions on what we should see in Finland or Oslo, we'd love to hear your suggestions.

Hey Matt,

Welcome to Finland!

Is there anything particular we'd like to see? Although Helsinki is not a huge metropolitan city we have loads to see here. Can you narrow your interests a bit?

We'll plan you a helluva visit :)

Hi I guess Lonely Planet will help you find the local tourist attrations like Holmenkollen, Vigelandsparken, The Edvard Munch museeum, The Royal Castle etc., but if you have 3-4 hours and the weather is nice, I recomend a trip to the local island. One of them actually have "wild" rabbits! Grunerl√łkka is also a nice place to have dinner. Small houses and bissi sidewalk resturants. Has a boheemian feel to it. Take a walk along The Aker river for dessert. Some advise: Stay away from Karl Johans gate! The somewhat liberal laws has left the lower side for junkies and the middel part for expensive (tourist) restaurant and shops. Start from Egertorget and work your way to The Royal Castle. Just a pointer!
