Of course if I had titled this talk, I would have used some other way to describe failure happening.
Hoping to get the rest of this videos up before the end of this weekend! This is much more time intensive than I imagined. Anyway, I will stop complaining. Toby DiPasquale was surprised that his room was packed for his talk on Cassandra. Our other NoSql speaker, Geir Magnusson, also had a full room. This is an area we will continue to emphasize in next year’s lineup.
Our last spot in our schedule was filled by one of our new speakers, Molly Holzschlag. Thanks to Andrea Wright for letting us know about Molly. It is not often we hear the room erupt in applause at the end of the speaker’s talk.
I received some assistance in my attempt to videotape our speakers, from Ahsen Jaffer. Ahsen handled the Agile “room”. He was also instrumental in helping us book the Agile track. Here is his interview with Linda Rising with a recap of her talk – Deception and Estimation – How We Fool Ourselves. It was an absolute pleasure meeting Linda. I heard great reviews on this talk.
Dan Allen has become one of our perennial favorites at Philly ETE. He also introduced us to Lincoln Baxter this year. Below, he gives a recap on his talk on Seam.
We were fortunate enough to have Scott Davis this year. Below is a recap of his talk on ROA and Rest. It was terrific to meet him. Scott also participated in the Battle of the Frameworks.
Lincoln’s talk, PrettyFaces – Harness SEO, Improve User Experience, Ease Development, is recapped in this video interview. Thanks to Dan Allen for suggesting we invite Lincoln this year.
David Black was kind enough to give two talks at the conference this year. The first is entitled Opinionated is Relative: Choice and Modularity in Rails Applications. The second, Barbara, Demeter, and Don: Notes on Some CS Precepts from a Non-Scientist Programmer, was rated as one of the best talks by one of Chariot’s consultants. Very high marks indeed. I hope you are finding these recaps valuable.
Your intrepid reporter has recovered sufficiently enough to continue posting videos from the last week’s conference. There is still some work to do, but I hope to have everyone’s up by Monday. Continue to check back for audio feeds, too. This clip is from John Quillen. John ran the Open source is a Commercial Enterprise? panel. We have beaten the licensing aspect of open source to death, plus it is old news. We thought we would give an update to…
