So there’s quite a lot going on at JavaOne 2010 - next week, already! - with regards to Infinispan. Firstly, I’m running a session and a BOF both related to data grids and Infinispan. Mark these in your calendar!
The BOF is on Tuesday, at 21:00, titled "http://www.eventreg.com/cc250/sessionDetail.jsp?SID=314196[A new era for in-memory data grids]". Click on the link for more details.
My main conference session is on Wednesday, at 13:00, titled "http://www.eventreg.com/cc250/sessionDetail.jsp?SID=314192[Measuring Performance and Looking for Bottlenecks in Java-Based Data Grids]". This should be a fun and interesting talk!
Further, the Red Hat/JBoss booth in the pavilion will be running a series of "mini-sessions", with a chance to meet and interface with the core R&D folk from JBoss including myself. I’m running a mini-session on building a Data-as-a-Service (DaaS) grid using Infinispan on Tuesday and Wednesday, along with similarly exciting talks by other Red Hatters. More details here.
And finally, the JBoss party. JBoss parties at JavaOne have become something of an institution and you sure wouldn’t want to be left out! Details here, make sure you get your invitations early as these always run out fast.
See you in San Francisco!

I will be presenting on Infinispan and its role in cloud storage, at Red Hat’s Cloud Computing Forum on the 10th of February 2010.
This is a virtual event, where you get to attend from the comfort of your desk. And although it is free, you do need to register beforehand so I recommend your doing so.

So the people at Devoxx have recorded my presentation on Infinispan and the future of Data Grids at Devoxx 2009, and have uploaded it for online viewing. For those of you who were not able to attend the talk, the recording can be accessed on http://links.infinispan.org/devoxx.

I will be presenting on Infinispan at Devoxx in Antwerp this November. For details, see:
Remember that you can track where the core Infinispan team will be making public appearances on the Infinispan Talks calendar!
So, see you in Antwerp!

Last week was one of the most exciting weeks for me since joining the Infinispan team because for the very first time, I was going to present Infinispan to the world :)
Firstly last Tuesday, I introduced Infinispan to Switzerlandhttp://www.jugs.ch/html/events/2009/infinispan.html['s Java User Group], where a crowd of around 20 people learned about the usability improvements introduced, the performance and memory consumption enhancements, and forthcoming new features. To finish the presentation, I showed the audience a demo of 3 distributed Infinispan instances connected to an Amazon S3 cache store via JClouds. I received some very positive feedback from the attendees who, in particular, were interested in finding out the differences between grid and cloud computing.
Two days later I went to Brussels to do the same presentation for Belgium’s JBoss User Group and the reaction was even better there! A lot of Spring developers attended the presentation who were very keen on integrating Infinispan in their own projects.
From here I’d like to thank all the people who attended these two sessions and in particular the organizers, Jakob Magun and Phillip Oser from Switzerland’s Java User Group and Joris De Winne from Belgium’s JBoss User Group.

I will be presenting on Infinispan, data grids and the data fabric of clouds at JBoss World Chicago, in September 2009. I will cover a brief history of Infinispan and the motivations behind the project, and then talk in a more abstract manner about data grids and the special place they occupy in providing data services for clouds.
In addition, I expect to pontificate on my thoughts on clouds and the future of computing in general to anyone who buys me a coffee/beer! :-)
So go on, convince your boss to let you go, and attend my talk, and hopefully I’ll see you there!
