GlassFish Prague Workshop - Done!

This 2-day GlassFish workshop in beautiful Prague is now over and a good chunk of the slides are now available from the event wiki.

With 50 people in the room we had a full house with people from the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, France, Spain, Slovakia, UK, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, Belgium, Netherlands, etc... I believe the content (thanks to all the presenters) and the format were good and I certainly enjoyed the great conversations during and after the presentations. The welcome reception at the end of the first day was certainly a nice moment (check out the photo of the 2 self-cooling kegs of beer, 20 liters/5+ gallons each!).

What made the event interesting also to me was the mix of Sun employees (product engineers, pre-sales, consultants, support engineers, even sales reps), but also partners and customers. We certainly tried to be open about many things, from the way we build the software and the community to the way to how we do business (not sharing any customer information without their consent of course). Also the refreshing part of this workshop was that actually very little time was spent talking about Oracle ;)

We will be running a similar event in Zurich during the first day of Jazoon (free event as well, only one-day long and probably no hands-on-lab). Details and registration here: GlassFish Day, June 22nd. Zurich.

GlassFish European workshop kicking off tomorrow in Prague

GlassFish has had a couple of workshops in California and it's now time to swim to Prague for two days starting tomorrow. Registration for the workshop was carried out pretty quietly given the maximum number of people we could easily accomodate here in the Sun office (less than 100) and the rate at which seats were going out.

Nevertheless this should be a great occasion to cover various GlassFish topics, from Portfolio to hands-on labs for clustering, centralized admin, OpenESB (Fuji really), and more by John Clingan (Product Manager), Jerome Dochez (GlassFish Architect) and other very fine speakers. As always I'm confident that the best part will be the socializing and I look forward to finding out more about uses of GlassFish around Europe and discussing the future of the product and community.

Now is also probably a good time to remind you that we'll have a free GlassFish Day in Zurich at the Jazoon conference on Monday 22nd June and the Java Application Server day on May 21st in Genova later this month.
