Infinispan @ Devoxx 2012 Hackergarten
Just came back from Devoxx, and once again it didn’t let me down! Great conference, with awesome talks, and fantastic networking opportunities (hackergarten, party…etc). As far as Infinispan is concerned, I joined the Hackergarten on Tuesday morning to try lure some contributors into our project :).
One of the most promising opportunities came from Alex Soto, who’s founder and lead of NoSQLUnit, which is a JUnit extension that helps you write NoSQL unit tests. He already has support for a number of NoSQL engines and he was explaining me the challenges of supporting multiple engines. We also discussed the possibility of supporting Infinispan as well :D.
During the Hackergarten I also met Andrés Almiray, which is the Griffon founder, and we briefly discussed the possibility of adding integrating Infinispan’s Hot Rod client with Griffon clients. Unfortunately we didn’t have time to get into some coding, but since he lives close-by and he organises Hackergartens in Basel, I might pop in next time around and sit down with him to work on this integration :).
Can’t wait for next Devoxx!!
