JUG Genova Meeting, 18/09/2007

Last September 18th, 2007, another JUG Genova meeting was held at DIST (Dipartimento di Informatica, Sistemistica e Telematica) of the University of Genova. It featured a very interesting presentation by Carlo Bonamico and Corrado Alesso on the Spring framework.

YAJGM (Yet Another JUG Genova Meeting!)

Another JUG Genova meeting was held at the local NIS office on Monday, July 23rd. Although the turnout was not as large as what we had back in May’s meeting, it was still a success. Two presentations were held: Fabrizio Giudici and I reported on our Jazoon ’07 experience: see the full (flash-converted) slide presentation (sorry, but it’s written in Italian) Fabio Bonfante gave a very interesting presentation on Aspect-Oriented Programming. Definitely a must-see! Here are our Jazoon ’07 flash […]

Jazoon 07: wrap-up

Just back home from Jazoon, and also back to work and to everydays hassles 🙁 . Also, the time has come to make a comprehensive evaluation of the conference. All in all, I must say I came back with a good impression of the conference, which was quite well arranged and brought along a whole bunch of interesting topics and issues. Wanna know why?

Just back from JavaPolis

This is the first time ever I take part in a conference abroad (i.e. outside Italy). Although I stayed there only for one day and a half, I must really congratulate the BeJUG on the top-notch organization of this event. Here are the main strengths of this JavaPolis edition: Impeccable organization, capable of standing a 2800-person horde with virtually no glitch; High-quality agenda, with a lot of interesting speeches and hands-on sessions; Terrific all-u-can-eat and all-u-can-drink buffet with some real […]

Bound for JavaPolis

On the 13th of december, Fabrizio Giudici and I will be giving a short talk (as a BOF session) on a Java-based parallel computing project of ours. This very application describes an application of parallel computing to image processing, with a view also to astronomy-oriented tasks. You can find the full description of our BOF session at this link. Many of you may know that parallel computing applications have recently come of age. The so-called “Moore’s Law” of computing power […]
