JAOO 2010

I’ll be speaking in JAOO 2010, giving an Introduction to RavenDB in the NoSQL track. This is going to be the first time that I am going to show RavenDB in a major conference, and I am just a tiny bit nervous. This is going to be interesting, because I am going to present to people who are experienced in NoSQL solutions.

In addition to my talk (obviously the highlight of the entire conference :-) ), there are other sessions that I really want to be at:

  • Rx: curing your asynchronous programming blues - Erik Meijer. This is something that have been popping into my sights for a while, but never long enough to sit down and really study it. So I think I’ll take a shortcut through this session :-)

  • Lessons Learned in Large HTTP-Centric Systems – Jim Webber. There are two reasons to go to one of Jim’s talks. The first is the content, the second is the actual presentation style. Take a look at some of his talks to see what I means.

  • Building a Pet Store that will Survive Cyber - Cameron Purdy. This presentation interests me mostly because I don’t believe that what is suggest can be delivered (virtually unlimited scaling in a generic fashion), so it would be very interesting to see what is going on there.

  • Where to put data - Michael T. Nygard. I usually learn new things from Michael, so I’m looking forward to seeing what he has to say about this.

And the conference gods have actually managed to set things up so I’ll be able to be in all of those sessions, and not be busy giving a parallel session.
