My Journey to JHipster Conf 2019
Last week was quite the whirlwind for me. On Monday, I released Ionic for JHipster 4.0, created a get started with JHipster 6 tutorial, and recorded a matching screencast. Within an hour of recording, I was on my way to the airport to fly to JHipster Conf.
I edited the screencast on my flight and published it to YouTube on my layover in Reykjavík. I was impressed that it uploaded just fine over airport Wi-Fi.
I took a long stroll that evening to Hébé Restaurant and had a delicious late night meal.
On Wednesday, I worked in the morning, then found a good lunch spot at Paname Brewing Company.
To celebrate the summer heat ?? in Paris, I searched for “breweries near me”, then walked to the one that looked the best. Worth it! ?? pic.twitter.com/RgU5fbVuME— Matt Raible (@mraible) June 26, 2019
That evening, I journeyed to Julien Dubois's home and met his wonderful family. From there, we headed to the JHipster Conf speaker's dinner and experienced a marvelous evening. Thanks to Joe Kutner and Heroku for sponsoring!

Thursday was the big day of the conference. I woke up early, walked to La Défense in Paris, got lost a bit, and ended up arriving on time.
I was pumped to meet some local Okta folks and have them sponsor the event. I enjoyed quite a few talks throughout the day and learned how to add a CLI to your JHipster module.
I spoke about OAuth and OIDC just after lunch and published my slides to Speaker Deck. You can view my presentation below.
After the conference ended at 7pm, a bunch of folks attended a party at Ippon. They have an excellent location with a gorgeous views from their rooftop patio.
I agree with Cindy and Deepu's tweets about the conference. It was a fantastic experience!
I'm so grateful for this @jhipsterconf experience! You are a very special family! Thank you so much for bringing us together! ?? pic.twitter.com/yTkPQNlLJA— Cindy Marin (@laslorma) June 28, 2019
