It’s just over a week since Red Hat Summit/JBoss World 2012 finished and it was a great pleasure to be part of it. Heiko Rupp and I were speaking about "Effectively Manage & Monitor Red Hat JBoss Data Grid Nodes" where we presented JDG and JON at a high level and then we showed a demo of both products interacting with each other. The presentation’s slides are now available for download.
I was not the only one speaking about JBoss Data Grid. Both Manik, the Infinispan project lead, and Alan Santos, the product manager for Infinispan, were also delivering talks on JBoss Data Grid. Although their presentations are not up yet, you’ll be able to download them from here.
I also met some Infinispan customers, such as Erik who’s been using Infinispan at a well known telecommunications company, or two of the lead technical guys at a well known Geneva bank. We had some great conversations where we were able to synch up our roadmap with them to make sure any requirements they had are met in the future.
Of the presentations I attended, I was particularly impressed by Pete and Marius' 10 minute demo on going from 0 to a fully fledged mobile application running on top of AS7 in OpenShift in the "What’s New in Java Frameworks for Web, Cloud, & Mobile" BOF. I hope it was recorded cos it was very impressive stuff.
It was a great week and once again it was a pleasure to be part of the Red Hat Summit and JBoss World :)

It’s exciting times at the Infinispan team! Here’s some of my highlights of the last few weeks and events coming up.
This was a great opportunity to introduce these new products to a Spanish audience, and as with everything in Spain, if you present in the native language, people understand things better and are more likely to get a better impression.
Might sound odd, but presenting this stuff in another language other than English, such as Spanish, is rather difficult even if you’re a native speaker. If you’ve developed software in English, you’re used to speaking about it in that language, but if you switch and you have to talk about in another language, getting the fluency required to tell a story (i.e. present something) takes a lot of preparation (write up notes in that language!) and above all, rehearsing.
The effort was worth it though! Having finished my first presentation, the JBoss Enterprise Data Grid one, I was non-stop talking to the Spanish sales force, potential Spanish customers…etc for the rest of the day, until I had to present again.
Last time I attended a JBoss middleware event in Spain was in Barcelona in 2006. A long time has passed since then, but what Red Hat Spain’s JBoss Forum shows is that JBoss Middleware is back in the Iberian peninsula, and it’s there to stay for a long time!!
Special thanks to Lucas Ponce who helped out massively with the live demos of both JBoss Enterprise Data Grid and JBoss Enterprise Application Plattform 6, and thanks to the rest of Red Hat Spain team who invited me to speak at the event.
Heiko Rupp and I will be speaking about JBoss Enterprise Data Grid monitoring with JBoss Operations Network, which we’re both hugely looking forward to! So, if you’re around, don’t miss the talk next Thursday at 2.30pm EDT (abstract can be found here)
