The TUG TEC ’007 conference is now over and done. Once again, the folks at TUG went all out to ensure both the attendees and the presenters were well taken care of. I had a couple of sessions this year:
- Web 2.0 for System i (mentioned earlier in this blog), and
- EGL and JSF
I have to thank George P. and Kushal, my co-presenters, for their help with those sessions.
Attendance at the sessions were relatively good. And for the first run of the Web 2.0 session, I think the reaction was positive. Although Web 2.0 seemed to be new to most of those who attended, we hope we gave a useful introduction to this popular yet misunderstood topic, along with its impact on both the technology and business worlds. It’s funny how there’s always a puzzled yet intrigued look on people’s faces when we describe Second Life. :)
The EGL and JSF session seemed a little more relevant to the attendees from my impression. Though next time I would delay going into the details of the JSF framework until after showing how simple it is to work with, given the tools available in WDSC. Kushal’s demo on creating a JSF front end to an EGL application was impressive. Sorry we ran short on time for the second demo. Maybe we’ll add a demo video on YouTube later.
We haven’t received feedback from TUG yet, but I’m interested to hear back from the attendees.
Thanks to TUG and those who attended. See you next year.
