Denmark partner & JBug tour exciting the masses with JBoss Integration & BPM

Denmark JBug in Aarhus
Last month I wrote about touring the Nordics with a first stop in Denmark this week.

I spent some time with a partner in Aarhus last week where we entertained a room full of integration and BPM enthusiasts.

It started with an overview of the potential of Open Source middleware as Red Hat provides their stack and introduced my session where I took them through rules, event and processes.

We had a good time with this and for the attendees they got the chance to take home a Red Hat remote control airplane that sure put some smiles on their faces when departing the event.

That same evening I then did a full on JBoss BPM workshop for the local Aarhus JBug, located in a neat little back room of a restaurant in the oldest part of town. As you can see in the picture above I had to be careful not to bump my head on the beam running through the ceiling.

The next day was another partner event in Copenhagen where we hosted a more intimate version with a very select group of customers that are actively working on integration and BPM solutions with Red Hat technologies.

It was fun to chat and interact with these customers, gaining insights into their usage scenarios and providing some feedback into the coming product features.

That evening I had the honor of launching the inaugural Copenhagen JBug event, which was hosted at the National Museum!

What a location to host a talk, with art, sculptures and thousands of years of history about the Danish culture all around us.

The group was very enthusiastic and left with a good appreciation for the uses of rules, events and processes.

I also spent time on the Business Resource Planner workshop that is in the works, providing the attendees with some direction on how to get up to speed on this technology too.

We covered the following in both locations.

Rule the World - Practical Rules & BPM Development

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. 

Full rooms in Denmark!
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 create your own rules or process project. You have a choice in this workshop between an online web shop project or an HR employee rewards process project.

Bring your laptop as this is a hands on experience that takes you from nothing to a fully working rules or process 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.

Where will be the next place where we can provide you with all the tools you need to get started with JBoss rules, events, planning and processes?

Just contact me if you are interested in hosting a JBug session in your area.
