Over the past few years I’ve attended a bunch of geek/coder events in the Colorado Mountains. It always surprises me how much I can learn by getting away, being around some really smart people, and writing code with them. So I’m incredibly excited to be attending The Programming Summer Camp 2011 this summer in Crested Butte, Colorado! At the summer camp you can choose which campsite to hangout in. Or if you want, you can create your own campsite!

Next week at JavaOne 2010 I’ll be co-presenting two sessions! On Monday Jeremy Grelle and I will present “End-to-End Richness: Integrating Java EE Services to Create Engaging RIAs” at the Hilton San Francisco. Here is the session information: Session ID: S313939 Abstract: Flex is one of the most widely used tools for building RIAs. But how do you efficiently connect applications to diverse back-end services built on Java EE? The Spring BlazeDS Integration project has emerged as an effective solution for building a lightweight connective tissue for exposing rich Java EE services to a Flex client from any Java Servlet container.
While I was at the Emerging Technologies for the Enterprise conference in Philly I was able to participate in a very fun podcast. The casual chat was hosted by Ken Rimple of Chariot Solutions.

Give it a listen and let me know what you think!
