DevNexus 2009 Report Part 1

More than half a year of preparation finally culminated in the grande finale from March 10 to 11 at the DevNexus conference. The result was in my opinion a great success. We received many emails from speakers and attendees alike, commenting on the very good quality of the DevNexus conference. This was the biggest event that I helped organizing, yet. I already have a few ideas and areas of improvement for DevNexus 2010. But that is subject of a future blog post…

Overall, I truly enjoyed the speaker line-up. Here are the presentations I attended:

March 10
  1. On the Lam from the Furniture Police by Neil Ford
  2. Terracotta - Real Apps, Real Frameworks, Real Use Cases by Ari Zilka
  3. Introduction to Grid based computing with GridGain by Charlie Hubbard

  5. Software Teams Tuneup: Using Agile to Optimize by Jared Richardson
