So after 4 long months of preparation for my JavaOne BOF I finally delivered it last night. While I can’t say I was too thrilled to get the 10:30pm time slot (I mean who wants to talk Java at 11:00 at night – not even geeks do), I’d say it went very well. The audience at least seemed engaged and interested in the topic judging by the quantity and quality of the questions. As I would tend to agree with my colleagues about the lack quality of presentations at JavaOne, I did my best not to be one of those.
I’m sure in one of the speaker waivers I signed I basically signed over my first born to Sun and they now own everything I’ve ever done related to aspects – but I’ll post the presentation up here for those that are interested. The target audience for the talk is what I would call a high-beginner level of knowledge about aspects. If that’s you it may be worth the download.
Also, here’s the accompanying source files zip that accompany the presentation:
Now that I have my life back I hope to be able to incrementally post a lot of the stuff I learned as part of the preparation for this talk, but no promises.
