I gave a preview of EJB 3.1 at the NYC JUG on the 6th of November. I have to say this was one of the best speaking experiences I’ve had in a while. True to the intent of the talk, the crowd was very interactive and asked a number of excellent questions. The feedback on the EJB 3.1 changes was very positive and there were a number of EJB 3 in Action readers there. It was clear this was a crowd of people with a much deeper level of professionalism than the run-of-the-mill “just a paycheck” types. It was great to see and I look forward to my next talk for the JUG on Java EE 6!
