This past weekend, the NFJS conference came to Austin, TX,
and I’m glad it did. Folks involved with
a user group of some type got a good discount, so we spread the word. This conference focuses on Java, Ruby, and

house, and it was a great time. Scott
Bellware commented that Ted Neward looked like Jesus with his hair wet playing

I’m going to post some more about the sessions I attended.
