I've spent this week at the Java Posse Roundup 2007 in Crested Butte, Colorado. It's been just amazing. Obviously, the afternoon skiing has been fantastic, but more importantly, the conference itself exceeded all my expectations. It's an Unconference, which is quite different from normal conferences. I certainly had some scepticism that it would be productive, but boy was I wrong. Everyone else I have talked to have had similar experiences. Basically, everyone who showed up has had a lot to contribute, so in the various sessions I've learned a lot and it's been very stimulating and inspiring. We have recorded everything and will be releasing the audio over the next few months, so you can hear for yourselves. But obviously, being part of the conversation is a lot more engaging. Anyway, it does mean that I've taken a brief pause from my Ruby IDE work. I promise I'll get back to it next week! I have however tracked down one bug - the bug with launched JRuby processes (webrick servers etc.) not getting killed and accumulating on your system. If you're not aware of this bug - check your process list occasionally, and kill orphan ones. Fix coming soon to an update center near you.
