JBossWorld and JUDCon post-mortem
Wow, what a week. We all know Infinispan is sexy and gets a lot of attention, but the last week has been unprecedented!
The first-ever JUDCon, the developer conference that took place the day before JBoss World and Red Hat Summit, was great and I look forward to future JUDCons around the world. Pics from the first-ever JUDCon are now online, along with some video interviews with Jason Greene and Pete Muir.
Some of the great presentations at JUDCon include Galder Zamarreño’s talk on Infinispan’s Hot Rod protocol (slides here) and a talk I did with Mircea Markus on the cache benchmarking framework and benchmarking Infinispan (slides here).
JBoss World/Red Hat Summit was also very interesting. There is clearly a lot of excitement around Infinispan, and we heard about interesting deployments and use cases, lots of ideas and thoughts for further improvement from customers, contributors and partners.
From JBoss World, there were three talks on Infinispan, including Storing Data on Cloud Infrastructure in a Scalable, Durable Manner which I presented along with Mircea Markus (slides), Why RESTful Design for the Cloud is Best by Galder Zamarreño (slides) and Using Infinispan for High Availability, Load Balancing, & Extreme Performance which I presented along with Galder Zamarreño (slides).
In addition to the slides, the first talk was even recorded so if you missed it, you can watch it below:
Further, Infinispan was showcased on Red Hat CTO Brian Stevens' keynote speech (about 28:15 into the video) where Brian talks about data grids and their importance, and I demonstrate Infinispan.
We even had an open roadmap and design session for Infinispan 5.0, which included not just core Infinispan engineers, but contributors, end-users and anyone who had any sort of interest. I’ll post again later with details of 5.0 and what our plans for it will be.
For those of you who couldn’t make it to JUDCon and JBoss World, hope the slides and videos on this post will help give you an idea of what went on.
