My first business trip of the year was to Dublin, CA this past week. Trish joined me because she wanted to take some pictures of San Francisco. She got some awesome shots as you can see below.
On Tuesday night, I attended Twitter's Open Source Summit with a co-worker and had a great time.
On Wednesday, I talked about What's New in Spring 3.1 at the Silicon Valley Spring User Group. I discussed the support for Java 7, Servlet 3, Hibernate 4 (and JPA 2 with Spring Data) and the new Cache Abstraction. I mentioned how spring-data-jpa-examples is a great sample project and showed a bunch of code from my Spring Kickstart project. I was surprised to find that no one in the audience (all Spring users) was using Java Config. Below are the slides from my presentation and you can also download the PDF.
