There's nothing like finishing up a training class

There's few feelings as great as finishing up a training class. The aches and pains that sneak into one's bones after talking and standing for 4 straight days is amazing. This week, I've been in Milwaukee, training a bunch of folks on Spring and particularly the new features in Spring 2.0. I had a full classroom this week, 18 students, and a number of them where PHP developers moving to Java. I had a tough time convincing them that web development with Java was easier, but hopefully they enjoyed the class anyway.

Now I'm sitting in the Milwaukee Airport, getting ready to fly back to Denver. Once I arrive in Denver, I have 2 hours before my flight leaves for Vegas. Hopefully I can catch a couple naps in flight and recoup before tonight's crazy night in Vegas begins.

As far as airport security, it was easy getting through in Denver, but they stripped me of my toothpaste and hair gel here in Milwaukee. Oh well, I shoulda known.
