    Unfortunately I didn't enjoy the session. I was hoping for something that didn't feel like a sales pitch. I don't like attending sales pitches in evenings - I have work for that. Enjoyed conversations before and afterwards though!

      Jaen, yes we had a lot of questions which shows that a lot of people were interested. But we could have done better in letting people know that the discussion will lean in this direction, we are working on ways to remedy this for future.

    Thanks for having me JUG members, sorry if the presentation was more oriented toward Red Hat and the middleware stack. The idea was to do a demo and then develop an full JEE6 app with JBoss forge and deploy to both windy and openshift online. If there is enough interest I'll crest a video and upload this.

      I personally would be keen to have you back for a technical talk or hands-on lab some time next year.

    Interesting, learned a lot, would have been cooler to get to the actual code. Probably should have gotten the heads up that it will be Redhat heavy.

    It felt a bit like I was in the live audience for an infomercial. Albeit an interesting one. Good to see everyone.. thanks for the takeaway pizza :)
