The best part about the Colorado Software Summit

The best part about the Colorado Software Summit has been the fact that I can travel home at night. Keystone is beautiful, the conference is well organized - but hopping in my car and sleeping in my own bed last night was awesome. This morning, I'll be heading to breakfast with the family, taking Abbie to school and then driving back up for some dynamite sessions this afternoon.

Tom Bender is speaking at 1:00 on "Mule - A Detailed Look at an Enterprise Service Bus", followed by Bruce's "Apache Geronimo Architecture and Community". I'm staying with both of these guys in a nice condo on the lake (across from the conference center) so it should be fun to hear them speak. I'll do my best to blog both sessions.

My favorite quote from the Colorado Software Summit

Here's a good quote from John Soyring's keynote on Monday:

... Geronimo is a subset of Websphere ...

I especially enjoyed this b/c I was sitting next to Bruce Snyder, one of the founders of Geronimo.

This quote seems to have been backed up yesterday with IBM's release of WebSphere Community Edition.

Heading to the Summit

Colorado Software Summit

In a couple of hours (after my fraternity's annual Alumni vs. Actives softball game), I'll be heading up to Keystone to attend the Colorado Software Summit. I'm pretty excited about going; it's at one of my favorite places to ski, and it's the first time I'll be attending. I've heard great things about this conference, and I'm sure it'll live up to its reputation.

On the other hand, I have a good case of the "it figures". I caught a nasty cold from the kids a couple of days ago and it's sure to be in full force by tomorrow. With any luck, I'll lose my voice sometime before a talk this week - or perhaps cough my way through one of them. Do you have a good story about speaking when you're sick? If so, please share.
