ApacheCon US 06

Finnaly I settled down to write something about Apache Con US 06, eventhough it's been about 2 weeks since I've been there. It was held in Austin, TX and I have to say it was very good. I went out for dinner a couple of times, and enjoyed all the live music that was going on, on 6th Street. Well they say Austin is the live music capital of the world....not sure I agree there.

Anyways I had a good time and met a lot of friends that I have only communicated through email/IM. I also presented on Axis2. The focus was on the usage of Axis2 with spring, pojo support, embedding being the main topics I coverd during the presentation.

I loved the keynote by Dr. Cliff Stoll and I also managed to get Howard Taylor a cartoonist to draw a small caricature of me with a cricket bat.

I met Roy Fielding the guy who invented HTTP and REST. But what really spoiled the whole thing was when I realized that somebody has taken my digital camera. I am pretty sure it was the hotel staff.
