This year the Asian Pacific Tech Exchange conference will be held in the city of Bangkok, Thailand from June 9 - 13.

There will be lots of great talks around the various JBoss Middleware technologies and I will be presenting a few talks and labs.

Please join us if you are in the area, the price is right, the weather is fantastic, the location nothing short of breath taking, and you will be entertained by world class speakers / experts on all kinds of Red Hat technologies.


The following sessions will be posted soon, so stay tuned to the conference site for the exact agenda when posted.


Rule the World - Practical Rules & BPM Development, Ready to rule the world?
With this workshop you get a chance to do just that, unlock the power of business rules engines and business processing for your development projects. We will take you through it all step-by-step, building rules, domain specific languages, using the wizards and editors that the JBoss BRMS & BPM Suite provide to piece together an online web shopping cart experience. You too can see what building an online web shop entails, the rules to guide shipping costs, promotional offers that need to be taken into account on each purchase, and monitoring live events as customers shop in the store so you can react to their activities.

This is a hands on experience that takes you from nothing to a fully working online retail shopping experience with JBoss open source software. No experience in rules or processes is required, you will be guided by the experienced speaker and go home ready to apply what you have learned in your own projects.
