The folks at JFrog definitely know how to put on events in style. For several years they have had an exclusive cruise at JavaOne for “Frogs and Friends”, and this year they stepped it up with a full day DevOps-focused conference in Napa, the heart of wine country.

The JFrog swampUP was definitely a meeting of the minds with a great cast of Java and DevOps Rock Stars milling around and chatting about state-of-the-art tooling in Java. Was great catching up with Carl Quinn of Java Posse fame and now at a very cool tech job with Riot Games. Guillaume Laforge was slightly jetlagged, but that didn’t stop him from ranting on the future of Groovy, which is now an Apache hosted project. And it was great to meet Seth Chisamore, the release engineering lead at Chef. I also happened to bump into Easy Bay JUG leader Chris Richardson and GR8Conf Organizer Søren Berg Glasius, so there was no shortage of expert hecklers to go around.

Here are some of the photos I took during the event.

The final keynote was given by Jagan Subramanian from Oracle who showed Artifactory running on big iron with some very impressive server setup.  The Oracle repository has grown to double-digit terabytes in size, which in itself is impressive.  However, the real story behind this is the network traffic, where they have done some clever hardware engineering tricks to keep things running smoothly all the way through the network switches in the data center.

I also presented an updated version of my “Confessions of an Agile Methodologist” talk that I got the JavaOne Rock Star award for. Believe it or not, in a previous life I was a DevOps/Agile guru, and a very early adopter of JFrog Artifactory. I am proud to say that they still have the best repository manager out there! :)
