I drove to Berlin, Germany from my home country of Holland, which looked on paper to be about 6 hours drive. Reality was a cold shower when I ran into constant construction and it took over 7 hours (each way). This was the only downside for me on the entire JUDCon experience!
Below you will find a small selection of picture to give you an impression of JUDCon and the two days. Some of it is not directly conference material, but it helps round out the feel of hanging out in Berlin for two days.
The location was fantastic, the food great and getting to hang out with all of the JBoss core developer rock stars was again worth the trip. Day one was two tracks that did not pertain to my area of direct interest so I spent most of this day with the jBPM team discussion our presentations for day two and previewing/reviewing the recent jBPM5 first code drop. I did not stay for the evening hack sessions as I had other appointments in town and wanted to see a bit of the city.
Day two was more my cup of tea with a BPM track and my session kicking off in the morning right behind the core team jBPM5 opening session. The rest of the day was spent following the various BPM session with some really interesting discussions in between as people approached me with jBPM migration tool questions/suggestions.
I look forward to the next JUDCon and hope I am allowed to attend again. Maybe next year we can demo the jBPM migration tool project in its entirety? See you there!
