NFJS Day 2&3 Roundup

NFJS LogoDay two and three were completely filled with sessions plus an expert panel discussion and a birds of a feather session. I personally had picked some sessions in advance by checking out the slides (yes, they were available three days before the conference started) but sometimes I simply changed my mind. Altogether NFJS is a great conference to learn condensed information in a very short time. Furthermore, because there are fewer people around you have a much higher chance to get in contact with them. Ted Neward used to say during lunch: Make sure you exchanged your business cards to surround yourself with peers that are smarter than you. I’m pretty sure that I’m going to attend in Spring again. Darn cool conference.

The sessions I attended on day 2:

  • Give it a REST, Brian Sletten
  • Getting Agile Planning and Tracking Up and Running, David Hussman
  • Beginning Drools – Rule Engines in Java, Brian Sam-Bodden
  • Refactoring Ant builds with Ivy, Groovy and good old fashion common sense, Andrew Glover

The sessions I attended on day 3:

  • Domain Specific Languages, Venkat Subramaniam
  • The Busy Java Developer’s Guide to Debugging and Monitoring, Ted Neward
  • Going Further with Grails, Jason Rudolph
  • Advanced Selenium, Neal Ford
