The first-ever JUDCon kicked off on Monday, and was very well received. It was good to see so many from the Infinispan community, and be able to discuss ideas and thoughts in detail. I'm hoping to see even more Infinispan-related activity at future JUDCon events.
The JBoss Community Recognition Award winners were also announced at JUDCon, and I was really surprised to find that 4 of the 5 winners were Infinispan contributors. Sanne Grinovero, Alex Kluge, Phil van Dyck and Amin Abbaspour - thanks for your participation in Infinispan, your peers have recognised your contributions and have voted with mouse clicks! Congrats!
Given how many Infinispan engineers and contributors are at JBoss World this week, we are having an open Infinispan 5.0 planning and roadmap session. So if you are around and would like to join in, this will be at 4:00pm on Thursday, in Campground 1. For those of you not able to make it, discussions will continue via the usual channels of IRC and the developer mailing list.
Now to prepare for my next talk ... :-)
