Javapolis Experience
December 20, 2005

Just came back from the Javapolis conference. It was a busy, exhausting, but most importantly, a fun-filled week. Thanks Stephane Janssen and Frederik Santens for inviting me.

I had a pretty busy schedule: one university session, one conference session, one BOF, and three interviews. It was quite a different experience to present in a movie theater with slides projected on the whole screen. The best parts were after the talks when many attendees came by and declared themselves as "AOP converts".

For BOF, I was up against King Kong! I wasn't expecting many to attend the BOF session. To my surprise, some hard core developers preferred intelligent discussion on myths and realities of AOP over some mindless movie! As a result, we had some great conversation.

I had the privilege of pair-programming with Rod Johnson on a transaction management aspect. Spring 2.0's integration with AspectJ will definitely prove to be a highlight of 2006.

Looking forward to next year's Javapolis!
