Hello from San Francisco!
The JavaOne conference went very well indeed. Sonatype managed to meet with all those we had planned and as a bonus we all got a day pass into the pavillion. There was a lot of crazyness there including Java powered robots and submarines but the rest was rather as expected. I got given a cool tshirt from one of the stands that reads "Phuck 0xFF, I'm coding" tee hee.
A complete shock was when Kenney, Eirik and I were shown on the front page of the JavaOne Today paper (Thursday edition) how cool is that? :) Picture here is approximately the same.
More excititing things to come in our SanFran trip I'm sure, today we are working with some other developers (Brett, Carlos and Edwin) so that should be fun.
