Java Symposium

The Java Symposium is next week!

I just made some more tweaks to my keynote and Architecture talk. Though I want to continue to prepare some additional models and diagrams for the architecture talk to show some cool examples…

Hope to see you there 🙂

Zealotry — ain’t all bad!

Uncle Bob wrote a nice piece on why being passionate and enthusiastic about what one does (and yes, maybe a bit fanatical), is a good thing!

When you feel in your gut that something is right, don’t let others deride your efforts and ridicule your passion.

At the same time, be pragmatic and avoid dogma. Know why you do what you do. Be open to other ideas. Constantly try to grow and improve.
