JavaOne 12: Thursday PM
By templedf on May 11, 2007
Even though the Darkstar lab was Wednesday night, Thursday morning it was still consuming my time. You see, the fifth exercise in the lab was to extend the MUD in new and creative ways and check in the results. I spent Thursday morning with Jeff assembling the contributions so that we can post them online.
The excuses continue. Between lunch with co-workers, dinner with the Darkstar (et al) team, and various hallway conversations, I only made it to 1/4 of a session on Thursday. I'm kinda bummed about that, but I think this year the social side of JavaOne is more important for me. I'll do better on Friday.
I did catch the last hour of the After Dark event. Not bad. They trucked in a bunch of the champion Battlebots from the television show and let folks from the conference drive them. Gratuitous fun. They closed the night with a Rolling Stones cover band who was decent. Would have been better if the beer weren't so bad.
