CamelOne and Scala eXchange were awesome!

Its been a busy few weeks lately! 3 weeks ago we had CamelOne which was a really great conference; one of the best I've been to for a while. Great talks & conversations - loads of energy around the Apache Camel community. I'm already looking forward to the next one! We should have the various presentations from it online.

I got the chance to demo the new beta of Fuse IDE which is coming out soon; its packed with some really awesome features for working with ActiveMQ, Camel and ServiceMix. We're hard at work getting that ready...

Then yesterday I had the pleasure of giving the day 2 keynote at Scala eXchange in London. I had heaps of fun, met loads of the Scala folks I've only met online before (including Martin, finally!) & even managed to get a few laughs in my talk (mostly at JSPs expense I think :). It was a very similar conference to CamelOne in many ways; heaps of fun, loads of energy & passion around and lots of fun was had by all.

My keynote was on the Scalate template engine; there's details here or go straight to the slides or video. The samples I used in the talk are in github.
