I’ll be presenting at this year’s Miralce Open World with a talk on how Radargun is used for measuring Infinispan’s performance. I think the topic is interesting for anyone that needs to prototype applications built using in-memory datagrids such as infinispan. So if you are around and you are interested in this topic, or just want to say hi, then look for the guy with the Infinispan t-shirt (and my name on the badge)!

JUDCon has, for the first time ever, spread beyond the western world. JUDCon India, held on Tuesday and Wednesday this week, was a roaring success with over 800 passionate community members flocking to the event held in Bangalore, India’s answer to California’s silicon valley.
One of the themes was developer productivity and engagement, to help community members get more involved in the projects they care about, to help them succeed in their businesses with JBoss technology.
JBoss AS 7, NoSQL and platform-as-a-service were a few of the popular themes, and there were no less than 6 talks on infinispan in just two days, presented by myself and Galder Zamarreño. The talks ranged from high level overviews and roadmaps to detailed, hands-on hacking sessions, as well as presenting thoughts and ideas for future development.
All in, an excellent community conference, well organised by Saltmarch Media, and very well received by the community. I for one look forward to another JUDCon in Bangalore in the hopefully not too distant future.
PS: After writing this, I noticed that Galder has blogged about JUDCon India too!

Finally, to top it up, I’ll be doing a presentation on JBoss' Polyglot revolution!
This is going to be my first visit to India and I’m very excited to be presenting at this conference :). Looking forward to meeting developers, architects and in general, anyone interested in data grids and various NoSQL technologies next week.

Compared with the previous editions, this year’s Devoxx was not that different: well organised, packed with interesting presentations and full rooms. And plenty of Belgian beer :) Pete Muir, Sanne Grinovero and myself were also given the chance to speak. And we did take our time with a three hours deep dive into the Infinispan ecosystem, plenty of live demos and good discussions. If you couldn’t make it and you can’t wait for the video to be published don’t worry, the demo is available online here. Give it a spin and let us know what you think!
