Martijn and I have been at OSCON 2011 (the O’Reilly Open Source conference – http://www.oscon.com/oscon2011/ ).
It has been an amazing week so far – huge numbers of the leading lights of the Open Source world (not just Java, but from across the industry).
We hosted a panel on the Java standards process and the JCP – there’s a good write-up of it here: http://www.javaworld.com/community/node/8086
We’ve also been busy on the language interop front – we organized an impromptu meeting of language geeks (including committers from JRuby, Scala, Clojure, Gosu and a couple of others) to talk about design of language interoperability features.
Will do a proper write-up of the conference when we get back, as there have been a lot of really great talks and presentations. We’re also hoping to arrange for some of the speakers we saw to come and present to the LJC when they’re visiting London.
