Late last week I was asked by my manager if I would be interested in going to JavaOne this year. My answer was along the lines of “Hell Yes!”. Well, everything has been officially approved, and I’m now in the middle of booking my hotel and flight to San Francisco. A few of my colleagues here at Orbitz, Matt O’Keefe and Doug Barth, will be presenting on some of the cool event processing work we’ve been doing here at Orbitz. In addition to attending their presentation, I also plan on attending sessions on design, debugging, scripting on the JVM, tools, frameworks, and more. I can’t wait. It’s going to be a great experience!
