Apache Derby UnBOF and Blogger's Bash at JavaOne
Just a few quick notes about some fun events going on next week at JavaOne.
On Tuesday night from 7pm - 11pm at Jillian's in the Sony Metreon there will be an Apache Derby UnBOF, and you're all welcome! Last year we did this and it was a rousing success, with as many database geeks as you could shove into the restaurant. Some analysts snuck in too, including James Governor from RedMonk and David Berlind.
On Wednesday night at 6:00 at the Thirsty Bear (just down Howard from Moscone) is a big Blogger's Bash, and I hope to be there too.
So if you're in town, drop by to one of these and come and say hello -- I've talked with many of you through comments and all I know is your obfuscating java.net login - it would be nice to meet you in person and get to know your real name.
