I'm gone for a 5-week vacation to India to do some backpacking with friends but before they arrive
I plan to do two presentations about NetBeans: at Calcutta JUG on Dec 17th and at Patkar College in Mumbai on Dec 19th. If you live nearby feel free to come and ask your questions about NetBeans. Both presentations will be demo-driven and will focus on new features in NetBeans 6.0 including practical tips about how to use NetBeans. If time permits I will also do demos on request - basically you can ask about any feature and I will try to demo it :)
In the upcoming weeks I will be connected to the internet only occasionally, so I won't be blogging much, but I am sure you already have other good sources of NetBeans news. We'll try to record a podcast with Gregg during next week to discuss the 6.0 release and other news items. Hopefully the internet connection will be good enough - I just saw a nice advertisement here: "cyber cafe, high speed connection: 512B". I'm afraid we'll need a bit more than that for Skype :)
Update: Unfortunatelly I had to cancel the above mentioned presentations - I got very sick in India and had to return to Prague to get medical treatment. I sincerely apologize to all who were looking forward to them.
