After a week and a half on the road, it's awesome to be home. JavaOne was a great time, but pretty exhausting too - and I didn't even go to any sessions! After attending the Ajax Experience, all the JavaOne topics seemed like old news. Actually, I was motivated on Thursday, but when I tried to register using the schedule builder, all sessions were full. Hot topics of the week were GWT, Avatar in JSF and Java EE. I do hope to checkout GWT sometime, but it'll probably take me a month or two. I'm booked at clients for the next couple of weeks, and after that I'd rather just enjoy the summer than work 12-hour days. As far as AppFuse 1.9.2, that's high on my list - but it'll probably take me a couple days to complete since I'll be doing it at night.
The Tangosol/SolarMetric party didn't disappoint, and Geronimo Live was a smashing success. There's a bunch of pictures (and video) posted on the Virtuas Travels Blog.
I arrived home Friday afternoon and the fun hasn't stopped. Softball game yesterday, followed by 3 BBQs and a night of playing with the kids on a friend's swingset. Today, we went to the 12th Annual VWs on the Green show. Unfortunately, it was 90°F, so we didn't last long. I'd like to say I got some good ideas for my bus, but in reality I chased Abbie and Jack around the whole time. Below are some pictures from the show today. As for my bus, it's in the shop, but no work has begun. I need to visit them this week to get something in writing so they can start doing body work.
