No Fluff Just Stuff

Mark Mzyk | June 22, 2008

I just spent this past weekend at the No Fluff Just Stuff conference, the Raleigh edition.  It was a very enlightening experience.  While it is a Java focused conference, it is still a great event to learn a lot, even if you aren’t a Java heavy developer, like myself.  I think I speak for a lot of attendees when I say that the dynamic languages were subversively co-opting the conference.  There was a lot of Ruby, JRuby, and Groovy talk, with Grails thrown in for good measure.  There was even an Erlang talk!

It is a small conference that is generally very technical in nature.  I highly recommend it.  Speakers such as Neal Ford, Ken Sipe, and Venkat make it very much worth while.

On another note, don’t expect any more updates for a couple of weeks, due to events in my life.  I’ll try to blog a series on what I learned at NFJS once I have the time and everything has calmed down.
