Last week I participated Agile Warsaw meeting. There was amazing presentation called “Distributed Agile” run by Piotr Modrzyk. He revealed his experience gained while working on sprezentuj.pl in distributed environment. He showed the mechanism of kanban methodology in practice and motivational payment system that was really awesome and I am sure I would hire him as PM to any running project:)
Another amazing news is video James Gosling on Apple, Apache, Google, Oracle and the Future of Java very interesting movie, I recommend indeed.
This week there will be 73. spotkanie Warszawa JUG – Andrzej Salwicki z “O obiektach aktywnych, obcym wołaniu metod takich obiektów i problemie otwartym?” The speaker is a professor so topics seems to highly abstractive and educational. Get ready for higher level.
Next week I am going to see another Agile Warsaw group meeting. There will be two guys from famous polish online communicator sharing their experience from working on telecommunication issues :) (More interesting for me cuz I do amazing stuff for one polish mobile operators)
ETL plugin for openESB for small data migration project is awesome. I don’t know how would it work for small data warehouse issue where you get 4 gb of data daily. Maybe fine. But for other small migration project it does the job just fine and first of all it’s amazingly easy to setup. I think that blind dog of one friend of mine could make a project with this tool. There is just one mistake in the last GlassfishESB version 2.2. This plugin forget to set two variables. You must put them by hand in:
files/nbproject/project.properties (add at the end, mine two entries with path would look like)
After that the project is ready to be build and generates wsdl file required for another operations: like including in business process or putting just inside composite application.
Two days ago I was participating a WarsawJUG meeting. Jacek Laskowski was speaking about clojure and some other amazing technologies he has learned while dealing with clojure and eclipse. (finally there was a guy that uses netbeans and claims that it worth something, most of the auditorium is eclipse, idea, spring coders – I predict from their’s reaction on: how faster and better is something being done in eclipse/spring whatever…). What really was interesting is clojure itself. I don’t really understand this fashion of clojure, scala – I have to read more about these trends. I’ve been once on meeting with Luc Duponcheel who was convincing ppl to scala and it’s lift framework. He believes it has great future towards, he believes also there will jvm remain after whole java and jee world. I will give these languages some more time, and go around for a while.
I’ve found in our office material from SUN course called The Business Component Development with EJB Technology, Java EE 5 (SL-351-EE5). After quick preview I know there is auction application implemented as a tutorial and there is whole business use cases description and UML: domain objects, persistence diagrams and implementation model. I am familiar with this world. I’ve seen much of this on SL-310-EE6, I’ve also have been on course for enterprise application architects but still I might discover something new in this materials :)
