<LI> Last year in April, I spoke at the <EM>Great Indian Developer Summit</EM> in 
Bangalore, India. The show was amazing and - I've just been made aware - some of the videos 
are starting to trickle online.  One talk I gave was <a href ="http://cloud.dzone.com/articles/spring-and-cloud-foundry"><EM>Spring and Cloud Foundry: a Marriage Made in Heaven</em></a>, which you can watch online. Unfortunately, they don't seem to also have the slides! 
     You can get the slides from my <a href="http://slideshare.net/joshlong">SlideShare.net profile page</a>. There are multiple permutations of this deck. Enjoy!
