SpringOne day one wrap–up
So, day one is over. Thoughts:
1) Some of the new stuff is pretty cool. Hooking up with AspectJ was definitely a smart move, and the AOP stuff both in 2.0, and planned for 2.1, is really making AOP more accessible to the 'average joe'
2) We (elab) seem to be ahead of the curve as far as DDD/Rich Domain Models are concerned. People are talking about it as if it's the latest thing, but we've been doing it for at least the last 18 months, arguably longer. There's no doubt that AOP can make it easier, but it's far from essential.
3) Using a multiplex as a venue is a cool idea. You can eat popcorn whilst listening to presentations!
