From Portugal to Brasil, and now onto Krakow, Poland, the cosmic tour has been a journey of mind, spirit, and best practices. I've given talks at the National Institute for Space Research in São José dos Campos, attended MiniPLoP and CBSoft, sat on a panel, talked twice while there, and presented with Eduardo Guerra on TDD Step Patterns. Now the cosmic tour has me presenting at JDD 2013. The JDD conference is being held in Krakow, Poland, the second largest city in the country. I've attended the JDD conference several times in the past, but this will be a new experience, as I'll be discussing the Big Ball of Mud in a new country with old friends. If you've never attended JDD before, then you're in for a real good conference, with many exciting lectures and topics to discuss. Here's the conference description:
JDD conference is held every autumn in Kracow since 2006 and has already permanently entered the IT events calendar in Poland. Every year the conference gathers nearly 400 participants working every day with Java. JDD is a two-day conference that offers more than 30 interesting lectures that take place in two or three paths. Additionally participants are invited to join special working sessions: workshops and networking sessions. Participation in training and discussions will be a part of the conference so that developers could easily exchange experience related to their daily work.
After the conference, I'll be heading to Switzerland to visit with an old friend. The trip should be a good time, rewarding and, as always with this tour, cosmic. And, if you need further proof of the cosmic nature of this trip, just take a look at the JDD site's background. Now that's cosmic!
