GlassFish Community Event and Thirsty Bear Party Pics @ JavaOne 2011
By arungupta on Oct 03, 2011
There were about 120+ attendees at the GlassFish Community Event where we provided a health report on the community, shared product roadmap, and heard some brilliant stories from Johan Vos, Stephan Janssen, Fabiane Nardon, Adam Bien, and Seam Comerford on how they are using GlassFish to block 650k spams/day at Mollom, serving 3000 requests/second at ESPN, serving 1400 concurrent connections at RBS, and enjoy that the community is serving, transparent, thoughtful, and caring. The stories were all recorded and will be shared on blogs.oracle.com/stories soon.
Here are some tweets ...
Good fun at the #GlassFish community event. Always great to be catching up
So unexpectedly exciting to finally meet #Glassfish users in person after badgering them electronically for years! #JavaOne11
@project_grizzly gettin' some love in the #glassfish community event. #javaone11
First short #JavaOne11 talk: "How Parleys.com uses #Glassfish" done.
#javaone good discussion/comments about java ee in the cloud, with #glassfish in the middle,
#glassfish has moved at a fast pace in the last year, advancing one whole minor release (3.0.1 -> 3.1.1) Oracle is committed. #javaone11
That's nice, the #glassfish is and will be strong in Oracle hands, actually they said they are hiring :). Cool
The crowd is a little bit shy, whatever I'm sort of happy :) #glassfish rules !
The mingling at Glassfish unconference did not work very well but the customer stories made it be worth being there.
Just had good time on the #glassfish community event
The glassfish unconference ended with making things from lego - I will have to explain to my children why I had to fly to USA to do this!
Glassfish seems to further gain momentum. Having been absorbed into Oracle has only strengthened the product - despite initial fears. #oow11
Enjoy some pictures from the event ...
And then some from the Thirsty Bear Party ...
Feet hurt, but we had a great time at the #glassfish event at the Thirsty
Really enjoyed the #Glassfish party, met lots of Java community friends. And yes, James Gosling is attending Devoxx IF his wife lets him :)
The #glassfish party was nice, and it was great to be in the Thirsty Bear again finally.
#javaone11 #glassfish community day: met lots of twitter / blogging / email virtual friends in real world. Looking forward to the keynote!
Had a great time at the #Glassfish party last night
