Last Friday I had the pleasure to visit one of the first big Apache Wicket meetups in the Netherlands. At the Felix Meritus, the same place as where the Cocoon GT 2006 took place, I was able to listen to a couple of the brightest Apache Wicket minds.
A couple of days ago I tried to update Ubuntu 7.04 (Feisty) to 7.10 (Gutsy). I was excepting another flawless upgrade after my experience with upgrading Ubuntu before from 6.06 to 7.04. Unfortunately this was not the case. During the installation I had a couple of errors and almost at the end my installation even crashed. As a complete novice on this level, what were going to be the consequences?
I could not have been more lucky. During the Cocoon GT I found out I had to take another business trip to New York a couple of days later. It was going to be my first visit to the US and I was really looking forward to it.
Wow the past weeks have flown by. I made a start with this post on the plane back from Rome to Amsterdam, but I could not find the time to finish it. So here goes:
The first day of the Cocoon GetTogether 2007 Hackathon has just ended and I have to say the it’s great to be in Rome. We’ve been really lucky with the beautiful weather here. It’s about 26 degrees Celsius, lots of sunshine and a perfect blue sky and it appears to stay that way for the next couple of days. The past 1,5 day have been great. Italy is such a wonderful country.
