It’s that time of year again – today is your last chance to put in a proposal for XTech 2008 in Dublin. You can read all about it in the Call for Participation. This year, along with the traditional core Web and XML technologies of XTech, we’re focusing on “The Web on the Move” – the emerging portability of data, applications and identity on the internet.
I’m writing my proposal today – I’m planning on pulling the very loose ramble I presented at Barcamp London on messaging architectures into a proper talk. For 2008 I’m very excited about Erlang, XMPP, message brokers such as ActiveMQ and clientside messaging with Comet. The future’s asynchronous and highly concurrent.
I’m looking forward to the face-to-face conversations of the upcoming conference season. Working on Dopplr didn’t leave much time for writing in 2007, and that’s not going to change in the near future. Right now my online tech output is most confined to tiny fragments of ideas on Twitter and random pictures on Flickr (Nokia N810 unboxing; Jawbone unboxing).
