On the 2nd of this month I gave a very hands on tutorial to JPA using Hibernate 3 at the NYC JUG. It went surprisingly smooth and actually turned out to be very interactive for a lab format talk. I can’t wait to see how things turn out when I repeat the talk in Connecticut next month.
I have to say this was one of the most charming groups I’ve talked at. The room in the New Yorker hotel was cramped as is everything in NYC, packed full of very young, very bright people from all over the World. It really felt like an intense environment where only “hardboiled” coders roam…
I was delighted to find out the JUG leader Dario is conducting a well-attended training course on EJB 3. I look forward to talking there again and maybe collaborating with Dario on a joint project sometime in the near future.
