I was able to catch up with Soloman Barghouthi, WebSphere Application Server Architect, before he heads to San Francisco next week for the IBM sponsored Developer Day event. The technical discussion will definitely sizzle...maybe enough to burn away some of that San Francisco fog.

Developer Day Event - San Francisco is a few days away and I hope to see you all there. For those of you who have not heard about the Developer Day events that IBM has been running, let me explain.
Developer Day Events are no charge half-day workshops that focus primarily on developers. The workshop covers three areas: standards, IBM WebSphere Application Server, and mobile development.
First, we will cover some of the key function in Java SE (Standard Edition), Java EE (Enterprise Edition), and give an overview of the OSGI framework. Then we will show how the technologies help with developer productivity, efficiency and problem determination.
Second, we will go over the IBM WebSphere Application Server, give a quick overview of the application middle ware trends, and show how both the IBM WebSphere Application Server full profile and liberty profile implement the standards above. Special focus will be on how IBM used the OSGI framework to build the Composable, lightweight, fast to start application server that is known as the WebSphere Application Server Liberty profile.
Finally, the workshop will cover mobile development and the industry trends in that space. During the session you will see live demos of the liberty profile and of the mobile development using IBM Worklight studio which is available at no charge for developers.
This workshop will benefit Developers, Developer managers, Architects, System Admins, and IT managers. I hope to see you all in San Francisco. If you are not in California, I hope to see you one of the other Developer Day events in a city close to you.
