First of all let me just say thanks to one and all for the kind wishes on today, my birthday.
I read over on Push To Test that Jeff Barr, Amazon’s Web Service Lead had been the keynote speaker at the SDForum’s Web Services SIG (Special Interest Group) last Tuesday 22nd.
The SDForum is no joke, for those of you not familiar with this group : “SDForum is the leading Silicon Valley not-for-profit organization providing an unbiased source of information and insight to the technology community for 20 years. SDForum provides a venue for engineers, executives, researchers, technology leaders, and venture capitalists to exchange information on emerging technologies and best practices. Each month SDForum connects 1200 software professionals through more than 20 events.”
This group meets in eBay’s Silicon Valley Conference Center and my plane ticket never arrived so unfortunately I missed it 😉
According to the Push to Test transcript, Jeff actually demo’d Zuggest which not only was tremendous exposure/publicity but was also tremendous validation and very gratifying for me as a technologist.
I would love to hear from anyone who attended this meeting and get any feedback on the demo.
In other news it is interesting to learn the REST vs SOAP debate is still raging on. Personally I can see the benefits to each approach but we’ll always have these types of debates I suppose. It’s encouraging to see folks passionate about the tech.
Time now to treat myself to a nice cup of hot tea.
