Java News from Monday, July 23, 2007

CMP has posted the call for abstracts for Software Development 2008 West. The conference takes place March 3-7, 2008 in Santa Clara. Once again I'll be chairing the XML track. As well as the usual C++, Java, .NET, Security, Modeling & Design, Ruby, and Web Development. The latter is sort of a catch-all for AJAX, Web 2.0, PHP, JavaScript and and other web tech that isn't already addressed in one of the existing tracks. Submissions are due by August 27.

By the way, I'll be at CMP's Architecture & Design World in Chicago later this week. There's still room for one more person on the Tough Problems in Unit Testing Panel with myself, Scott Ambler, and Bob Martin on Thursday. If anyone would like to participate, please drop me a line. It's always a good time.
