Two meetings in a month at JUG Milano
*** edited to add: please be aware that Jan 11 meeting has been cancelled ***
January 2007 is a special month at JUG Milano: we will have two guests in a week, and two very important guests: Dennis Reedy and Jonas Boner. Filippo Diotalevi just confirmed the two meetings:
- On January 11, Dennis Reedy will present "Dynamic Services: Architecting for change". A quick introduction about the talk: "Developing applications which can be used in a dynamic environment presents challenges in the areas of scalability and handling growth. The presentation will review distributed architecture patterns and the inherent challenges of creating a dynamic service oriented architecture, as well as introduce Space Based Architecture principles built on a policy based infrastructure.". Dennis is VP Advanced Technology at GigaSpaces Technologies and he is the creator of the Rio framework.
- On January 18, Jonas BonÃ©r will present "Distributed Computing Made Easy: How To Build a POJO-based Data Grid". About the talk: "It is a very practical, "hands-on" session in which we will present
how to build the Master/Worker pattern using standard JDK 1.5, and how to turn it into a distributed grid implementation by using Open Terracotta's* JVM-level clustering technology.". Jonas is a Senior Software Engineer at Terracotta, the founder of the AspectWerkz AOP framework and commiter of the AspectJ project.
Please look at the JUG Milano website for further information.
Yes, I know, two meetings in eight days can be a problem, but the talks are so interesting and the hosts so authoritative that I bet that guys around Milan will attend in a large number. ;-)
