I just got finished with my Spring 2.0: New and Noteworthy talk at Atlanta DevCon 2006. Let me be the first to say that the conference was great. The site and organizers were all top notch. I’d like to give a special shout-out to Burr Sutter for putting on one heck of a conference. You know that things are going well when the conference center doesn’t have a wireless network but you can get the one from the cafe next door. That’s good karma! The JUG members were all very knowledgeable (even the ones that didn’t know about Spring) and asked great questions. I fielded questions about EJB 3, JPA, ESB, Spring learning curves, Java 5, and Spring Web Flow; every one a great question.
For those of you that weren’t able to make it, I’m posting the slides from that talk in a couple of formats. I’ve decided to post the Keynote file for all you fellow Mac users out there as well as PDFs and the very cool exported HTML that Keynote creates.
Feel free to use the comments to ask me about some of the new and noteworthy features of Spring 2.0.
