Just arrived in Antwerp, where Devoxx 2012 conference is being held, and I wanted to share some information with the community on the Escalante related events happening in this mamooth, week-long, conference:
Not sure how this is gonna work out, but a couple of very interesting BOFs are happening at the same time: On one side, the Scala Enthousiasts Gathering and in the other, JBoss Polyglot colleague Ben Browning will be talking about Why JRuby and TorqueBox Belong in Your Java Tool Box which is likely to include some discussions around the JBoss Polygloy movement, which Escalante is part of.
I'll be attending the Hackergarten Hands-On Coding Day for which I've selected some Escalante coding tasks to suggest attendeees. Escalante is in its infancy, so there couldn't be a better moment to get involved with the project! :)
I'll be presenting JBoss Polyglot Revolution - Be part of it! session where I'll be speaking not only about Escalante, but also the other initiatives Red Hat/JBoss is working to provide middleware for users writing applications in other languages such as: JRuby (Ruby), Jython (Python)...etc.
If you wanna have a chat about Escalante stuff (i.e. Lift and Play integration, SBT work, quickstart suggestions...etc), get in touch with me via @galderz or @escalanteio twitter accounts and we can arrange a meetup (if there's Belgium beer involved, even better!) :)
