CamelOne was yet again a really cool and fun conference. I just returned back home, from the 2nd annual CamelOne conference, held in downtown Boston. It was a 2 day packed with great talks with a balanced mix of technical talks, cloud stuff, and showcases of integration in the real world.
The feedback of the conference was really good, as you can see from the image below.
The FuseSource engineering team was present, and on the end of the 2nd day, Debbie, got us together for a photo session.
CamelOne 2012 - Day 1
So back the the 1st day. This year Jonathan and I was asked to do the opening key note, with our Camel story, and where the Camel project is today, and some thoughts about how Camel could be riding the cloud in the near future. Jonathan and I wanted to tell our Camel story with a sense of humor. I can say mission accomplished when the slide with the lovely Camel picture was shown. And no the picture is not retouched, it was found using google image search.
Free Apache/Fuse Resources
Jonathan was next after my talk, and his talk was a natural progress from mine talk. As he gave a rundown how you can run and deploy Camel and CXF applications in the ESB server. Jonathan showed how this works in practice as well.
He was talking about his experience with evaluating Apache Camel, Spring Integration, and Mule ESB. I guess Camel was in favor at a Camel conference :)
As always a pleasure to watch James talk with such a enthusiasm. His talk was a technical talk addressed to the developers how to develop and get Camel riding in the cloud. He gave a tour of the cool and awesome much improved Fuse IDE 2.1 product. It now has even more Camel crack for runtime insight. As well as easier deployment for both local jvms, remove machines, and as well the clouds.
The idea of getting people engaged, based on the ideas of computer games. But applying them in a real life processes. For example a company managed to get its employees go to the gym, based on teaming up, and competing against your co-workers.
In Sweden they have traffic cameras, using reverse sychology, by enlisting people in a lottery, if they are within speed limits. However people above the speed limit will of course still get a fine, and not participate in the lottery.
Likewise the tweets about Charles Moulliard were very positive. Seems like people wanted to go and play with websockets, and the Camel. This is definitly cool. So Camel 2.10 is a much anticipated release, having the websocket component out of the box.
There is 85.000 devices, which they need the monitor. Its everything, from censors on the collider, to fire alarms, door buttons and whatnot. CERN is definitily a cool place. In fact the coolest place on earth as well, as they need to cool down the collider, to 1 degree kelvin. That is - 272 degrees celsius.
Like CERN, the CamelOne conference was very cool.
I discovered a number of other blogs covering the CamelOne 2012 conference
- Kai Waehner blogged his CamelOne report.
- Christian Posta blogged as well
- And Rob Terpilowski who gave a talk also
Hope to see you in 2013 at the next CamelOne conference.
As David Reiser tweeted, the conference was awesome.
