Jazoon 07

Here we are! Live at Jazoon07!

Jazoon Logo!

Quite impressive stuff! I found it to be a professional conference, as expected, and it was possibe to meet many interesting people, Neal Gafter among the others (nice pictue of Neal on JUG Milano website, where he’s managing large amounts of swiss food! )

Here I summarize my impressions, given that I completely agree about what Filippo and Roman already wrote

Pro’s:

  • large amount of speeches to choose from. every day
  • many PC and printers available to public
  • free traveling ticket for public transport was a great idea
  • free Toblerone was beautiful :) (but please, don’t wait the very last day to release it!!!)

Con’s:

  • notepad and pen missing from welcome bag
  • bad conference map, with speeches’ abstract collapsed in four lines, the first four (men, you asked as for five pages! So what?)
  • no java-champions BOF (but this was also our fault :( )
  • official jazoon¬†blog¬†is not very up-to-date

Anyway, I definitely recommend this conference!

And yes, my speech went very well :), you may also take a look at a more complete report on JUG Torino website (unfortunately, it was written in Italian)

JavaPolis 2YK6

JavaPolis 2006

JavaPolis is at the end, the last session is running now and people are leaving the site. What an event! I met a bunch of people I would never imagine to met, like Kirk Pepperdine, David Booth, Bruno Souza, many evangeist from Sun and many, many more!

I had my speech this morning, and all went well… yeah, it was great! A big room, crowded of interested and, strangely, awake people! (it was 9.30 in the morning :-D)

Me at JavaPolis!

So…. what more can I say? So much fun, everithing was almost perfect, nice food (and note, I’m an italian guy :D), better if you plan to come next year!!! More will come, now I must leave to come back… see you soon!

Speaking in Prague at CZJUG

On 23th I was speaker at CZJUG in Prague with Filippo, presenting the talk I’m gonna expose at JavaPolis in December
Jiri Fabian, Roman Pichlik, Filippo Diotalevi, Bruno Bossola, and Roman Strobl

It was a great JUG meeting and also a nice test for myself :) I feared about my little knowing of english tongue, anyway all went on well and I’m satisfacted about my performance. Also Prague is such a beautiful city, and I enjoyed it very much: I discovered a charming beer, Kozel, a dark beer very tasty!

Thanks to Roman Strobl and CZJUG you may also take a look at the video of this speech here!
