NetBeans Going to Tokyo2Point0
By jimgris on Aug 29, 2008
NetBeans will be featured at Tokyo2Point0 Monday night. Stop by if you are in the area. Sun Japan engineer Masaki Katakai
will lead off talking about building Web apps with the open source IDE,
and then there will be a talk about Lifestream replacing the blog
(ouch, that may hit close to home for me). Some
food and drink mixed in, too. Should be fun.
It will be good to hear about NetBeans again since I used to do communications for those guys more than four years ago now. Interesting how NetBeans really took off after I left! :) Anyway. Hopefully in the future we can get OpenSolaris presenting at Tokyo2Point0 as well. Such opportunity all around us now with all of these communities. One of the things I really like probing is how disparate communities can get together and collaborate, or at least meet and exchange ideas and opinions. So, not only are we learning how to cross firewalls and language/cultural barriers, but we ought to be crossing community lines as well. This happens quite naturally on all of the projects we are involved with, of course, but it's also an interesting area to explore more actively as well.
