This time of the year again all the developers interested in this event came to Brno to gather together to have a fun on the developer conference. The conference took place at the Masaryk University at Brno. On the following link is the full agenda including the presso for the Mobicents presentation, what I was involved at.

The agenda was full of the very interesting topics from Jboss topics like Jopr, jboss.org, Drools, Jbpm to Fedora topics like KDE, core utils etc. Of course for me was the most interesting one the Mobicents presentation, which took place at the first day of the conference as the First one (from 9:30 am). I can honestly say, that I was a bit nervous since this was the first time I have presented in the university presentation hall. The attendance however did not exceed the expectations. Finally about 30 people were attending Mobicents presentation and some of them were the outside people , I mean non Redhatter's. What I have mainly focused on, was trying a bit evangelize about Mobicents. The basic assumption was that the target audience is not aware of Mobicents at all. So, I have generally introduced Mobicents follwoed by the other Mobicents modules overview (JAIN Slee, Sip Servlets, Media, Presence, Diameter). The presentation went quite OK and I hope that the attendees did get any idea, what we are doing in Mobicents team.
Other presentations, were also quite impressive. Especialy at the second day I would like to pick the jBPM presented by Jiri Pechanec the Red Hat QA Supervisor and the Drools presentation done by Lukas Petrovicky the Red Hat QA Associate. They both made a very interesting stuff.
Now we are in the middle of the second day and in the evening I am going to attend the Lab for the Portlet creation and then the Lab for the Jopr plugin (I hope I can easily create my own Jopr plugin as well).
After the developer conference presentations, there is going to be the pub event, which is also very expected.
Overall the developer conference is quite amazing experience for the developers to join. Is is a good time to stop a bit from the rush days, every day drill and to meet the others and see, what their projects are and what they are working on.
