I have a pretty busy schedule over the next few weeks...
I'll be doing a presentation on scalability and how Coherence can be used to improve it for the Tampa JUG on Tuesday, Sep 29 (two days from now).
On Thursday, Oct 1 I will do the talk on Coherence Tools, an open source project seeded by the code I wrote for the book, at the NY Coherence SIG. I will do the same talk at the Bay Area Coherence SIG the following week (Thursday, Oct 8) and will be in SF through the 14th, attending Oracle OpenWorld.
The week after I'll be in New Orleans for SpringOne (Oct 19-22). It's been a while since I've done anything on Spring, but it will be a lot of fun to see everyone and learn what's new. Plus, they have finally ;) ported the SpEL expression language I created for Spring.NET back in 2005, and will release it as part of Spring 3.0. Looking forward both to Arjen's talk that covers new Spring 3.0 features and Craig Walls' talk on SpEL in particular to see what they've done with it (I'm sure Rob would say they improved it -- he always does ;)).
In any case, if you are at any of these events, please say hi. I love to meet Coherence users and learn how they are using Coherence in the wild.
