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.
