Farewell San Francisco

Geertjan Wielenga

Well, it was a great week!

I especially enjoyed the several NetBeans-related events throughout the week—the parties at Johnny Foley's and Thirsty Bear, the packed out NetBeans Day (some sessions with over 700 attendees) with James Gosling keynoting two sessions, the many NetBeans-oriented sessions throughout the week, and the many small reunions with NetBeans friends from all over the world. Especially nice to meet people who keep coming back to JavaOne year after year after year. Java (and especially NetBeans) is all about community, it's been like that from the days of Sun Microsystems and continues to be that way as evidenced throughout the JavaOne 2015 week. 

The week ended on a high note—breakfast with Tinu Awopetu, well known in the NetBeans community for many years, and JB Brock, who leads the Oracle JET project, in a nice breakfast place in downtown San Francisco: 

And breakfast itself was pretty awesome, i.e., only in America is this combination an option at all:

Until next year everyone, thanks for the great times.
