Devoxx 2010 – How ZT went through it and came out alive

Whew, Devoxx. Awesome Event. Great people. Strong Beer. Head-achey.

After the third helping of delicious pommes frites (cannot call them “French fries” in Antwerp with a good conscience) and mayonnaise, it suddenly occurred to me that we would be lucky to leave Belgium without a heart attack.

Add to that the now infamous kwak beer (8.5% alcohol), served for drinking in a low-end chemistry set, we were lucky to make it on any form of transportation that wasn’t an ambulance.

But other than that, Devoxx 2010 was a top-notch event. We gave out four-month licenses of JRebel to hundreds of people. We saw old friends and met some new ones, and then forgot who they were the next day because of the Kwak…

A lot of interested people came to see the brand new ZeroTurnaround booth and to tell us things about JRebel like, “I’m naming my first child JRebel”. Ok, not really. Here are some photos of the ZT team working their magic:

Cheers to EAS (Enterprise Estonia) for helping us put the whole thing together. Your funds are awesome!

Just a reminder, our annual survey comparing Java development environments has reached 1050 respondents. We’ve got to close it down in only a couple of weeks, so come be a part of it in two ways:

* Add your input and compare development environments with other developers all over the world

* See the preliminary findings so far – you might be surprised!
