[Javaone 2009] Glassfish party after Unconference

Sunday. San Francisco. United States

I decided that I won't blog about the sessions that I attended as everybody does. I'll blog about the parties. Let me explain why. The sessions, BOFs, HOLs are full of the technical information and news about bleeding edge technologies however you as the attendee are usually in passive role. You just listen to somebody talking. (And sometimes it's really boring). But at parties you are meeting the people. The people that are behind and around the technologies, people that develop it and use it. And you met them at a party when they are more relaxed. You can discuss whatever you want with them - either work topic or a generic one as weather. That's why I like these parties. And, of course, free beer, free food :)

After the GlassFish 2009 unconference there was a party in Thirst Bear. At the beginning it looked as gathering of old friends. So many well-known faces. And it happens often at JavaOne parties that you are meeting the people that you knew from previous J1s. Me and Tomas finally met Craig McClanahan who is one of the author of the REST API for Sun Cloud.
I really enjoyed the party with Glassfish folks. I wanted to ask Koshuke about his talk about Hudson and Cloud. However he was faster and asked me about the our session "Test Your Product on Multiple Machines in Parallel with Hudson". He was really interested in it. And then he convinced us that it would be worth to opensource it even if it's useful for testing of NetBeans IDE for now.


Are there any pictures from this party? I don't have a camera :(
Do you know where to go for "after party"? - Chieftain Irish Pub at Howard and 5th.

I met a few experts in the pavilion and it was a better feeling then sitting passively in the presentations. Its more interactive, and I got a chance to speak to OpenSSO expert Pat Peterson about my issue with OpenSSO and Active Directory integration. It was really informative.
