Special Announcement - Silicon Valley Code Camp

Fully formatted shownotes can always be found at http://javaposse.com

Just a quick reminder that we will be at the Silicon Valley code camp tomorrow, Saturday Oct 27th for a live recording. If you are in the bay area, why not come on by and see us. Better yet, come and spend the whole day geeking out on all things Java (Saturday seems to be the Java day, even though the camp is on for the whole weekend).

It's not too late to sign up, go to:

http://www.siliconvalley-codecamp.com/AttendeeRegistration.aspx

to register now. And we look forward to seeing you there.

If you don't live in the Bay Area or can't make it, the Posse episode should be up some time on Sunday so please be patient. Thanks.

Meet up details for Oslo and Amsterdam


If anyone is interested, Carl and Dick will be in front of the Spektrum in Oslo (where the JavaZone conference was held) at the entrance where the rocket ship was (still is?) tonight (Friday 14th) at 8pm local time. We are intending to go looking for beer and possibly lutefisk. Anyone who wants to is welcome to meet up with us.

Also, tomorrow (Saturday 15th) Dick is aiming to be in Molly Malone's Irish Pub close to the Amsterdam Centraal station at around 8.30pm to 9pm (very roughly - depends on flight, time to find baggage, etc.) so if anyone would like to meet me there, please do.

Molly Malones Irish Pub
Oudezijds Kolk 9
1012 AL Amsterdam, Netherlands

Java Posse Episode 142 - Special from JavaZone 2007

Velkommen til Episode 142 av Java Posse - Ekstrasending fra JavaZone 2007!

Top reasons indicating you might be on a Broken Project:

  • It takes three months to add one checkbox to a web UI
  • Everything starts to look like it would be quicker to rewrite
  • Everyone on the project has "Architect" on their business card, and yet they never agree on anything!
  • Conversations start with "Oh, that, that's really simple, you just...." followed by a 30 minute description on what to do
  • You time your life around "the build"
  • The GUI is written in AWT... or HTML 3.2
  • Or! The GUI is written in something you wrote yourself
  • The project .... is a home grown web framework
  • Someone just added 5 more hours of meetings to your work week because "it's late"
  • The guy who is supposed to train you, throws a folder of notes at you and runs away cackling gleefully
  • The lines of XML outnumber the lines of Java 10:1
  • You ask about unit tests and get blank stares from everyone, or a "yeah, we should do that really"

Roundup 2007 Session - Desktop and Web

Fully formatted shownotes can always be found at http://javaposse.com

Recorded at the Java Posse Roundup 2007. Since this was recorded, the landscape has changed a bit, with Adobe Apollo being renamed to Adobe AIR, Java FX being launched at JavaOne, and Google Gears also being released. The audio quality is what you would expect from a recorder in the middle of the room with lots of people sitting around it.

Thanks
