Daniel Bryant and I did a keynote at Devoxx UK about how individuals can add something to a team to make the team more productive, and overall more awesome.
While I was at QCon New York (probably my business conference this year!) I was interviewed by Ralph Winzinger for InfoQ. It felt like a short interview at the time, but we covered a lot of ground - Java 8, Java vs other JVM languages, the effectiveness of the JCP, and the future of Java.
Video and the transcript are available on InfoQ.
At GOTO Chicago, I was given the chance to chat a bit about the presentation I was giving, which happens to be the same one I’m giving at a number of conferences this year (although of course I’m evolving it as I go along).
Last Saturday Mr Stephen Chin came to Sevilla on his crazy European tour to show us Lego and Robots. This was our largest turnout yet for a Java User Group event in Sevilla, which surprised me as it was on a weekend, and the weekend before the spectacle that is Semana Santa in Sevilla.
YOW recorded me, yet again, talking about the adventure that is the design of the new Java Driver for MongoDB. This is the same talk I gave at GeeCON and DevoxxUK, with some updates based on our Journey So Far. In it, I cover the architecture of the new driver and some of our current thoughts around where we want the API to go.
While I was at QCon London, I was grabbed for an interview with InfoQ. It’s always a pleasure to be interviewed by Charles, I think he brings out the best in me.
For blatant self-publicity, I’m making a note of all the presentations, panels, interviews, articles and other public-facing events I’ve been involved in.
