I could not be happier since making this move. I have been able to get a lot done for the field that I was not able to do like demos, howto blogs and more.
seventy five (75) articles in 2012. You can find the JBoss content here, on dzone.com and over at howtojboss.com. I have joined with Java Code Geeks site and was invited as a DZone MVB which means both sites republish content from my blog. I have published several articles at JAX online, several over at Computable.nl and a book called OpenShift Primer at DeveloperPress.com. I also lined up a Chinese translator and you will find links at the bottom of my articles that direct you to a translation.
I even found some time to work on a novella and a few short stories are in the works as I write this, all non-technical in nature. A writer writes, everything!
This year we got our first ever Red Hat / JBoss branded cycling gear. I logged over 2k km in places like the Veluwe, Limburg, Belgium and even participated in the ALS tour for a good cause (106km in 4,5 hours)!
I finally split out my tweeting on cycling to a new account @RedHatCycling, check it out if you want to keep up on my adventures on two wheels.
I sure got to move around this big old world this year, starting with the first 6 months as a JBoss SA and finishing with story telling trips as a JTE:
- Paris, France
- Luxembourg (YaJUG)
- Lisbon, Portugal (PTJUG)
- Mallorca, Spain
- London, UK (Cloud Tour, Red Hat Dev Day)
- Rome, Italy (Codemotion)
- Amsterdam, Netherlands (Cloud Tour)
- Boston, MA (JTE interviews, JBoss World / JUDCon, Boston JUG)
- Portland, OR
- Brussels, Belgium
- Antwerpen, Belgium
- Berlin, Germany
- Crete, Greece
- Chicago, IL
- Beijing, China (RHTC / RHPT)
- Aarhus, Denmark (GOTO)
- Munich, Germany (JBossOneDay)
Looking forward to the coming year, with new products, new travels and new stories to tell!
