Want a kick-ass Java Job in Boulder?

Do you know AppFuse well? Want a job in Boulder, Colorado?

I met with a couple of guys from Morphlix last week - they're using AppFuse as a base for building a new video distribution system - like Netflix, only a lot better. They're building up their team and looking for ace back-end and UI developers. If you're interested, drop them a line via

Why do I mention this here? Because it sounds like an awesome company to work for. They're in startup mode and, from the sounds of their business plan - destined for success. Who knows, I may even join them after I get done with the LinkedIn gig. ;-)

JA-SIG Keynote: Comparing Java Web Frameworks

This morning I did my first keynote at the JA-SIG Summer Conference in Denver. My talk was on Comparing Java Web Frameworks. I told attendees I'd post it here afterwards, so here it is:Download Comparing Java Web Frameworks Presentation (1.1 MB)

In addition, I mentioned my Java Web Frameworks Sweetspots Whitepaper.

Will I be comparing web frameworks at conferences for the rest of my life? Possibly. I've been submitting 2-3 proposals to conferences and it's the only one that keeps getting selected. I'll be delivering it at OSCON, JavaZone, Colorado Software Summit and ApacheCon US.

The Colorado Software Summit wants to have an original presentation - so I may need to drop a framework or two and add in Seam, Grails and GWT. If you are planning on attending one of these talks, which frameworks would you like to see compared?
