GlassFish Day Milan Report - Link to presentations

Milan Cathedral

We've just held the first GlassFish Day outside of the US (the previous one happened during JavaOne last May).

Here is a page on the GlassFish Wiki with all the presentations slides. As you will see it covers sister projects such as portal, OpenESB, OpenMQ, Jersey and more. The end result was an energetic event with interesting interactions with the attendees and it's always interesting to learn about what people are doing with the technology.

Ed Ort has a review of the event with reaction from the audience. Next stop Beijing!

Results from GlassFish Presentation at Joint Meeting of Bay Area JUGs

Java User Groups Button

Several GlassFish engineers presented to a joint meeting of the Silicon Valley Java Users Group and the Silicon Valley Web Developer JUG at the Googleplex yesterday (as previously announced here and here). Arun has posted a nice report on how it went, including pictures of the speakers and attendees. Looks like it was a very good event.

Wish that something similar would happen near you? Well if you happen to be in the Boston area, mark your calendars for May 10 when Sekhar will be leading a GlassFish presentation at the New England JUG.

Also, keep an eye on the GlassFish Events Page for announcements of other events. And if you know of a forum which might be interested in a GlassFish presentation, contact our new Advocacy Team. Or better yet, join it.
