    Welcome to issue number two hundred and seventeen of Hashtag Jakarta EE! I am now on my way home after a week in North America where I spoke at Philly JUG and ConFoo, my second tour overseas this year. The upcoming month will be dedicated to Europe. First up is Malmö...

    ConFoo 2024

    Saturday, February 24, 2024 - 15:25 by Ivar Grimstad
    This was my fourth time speaking at ConFoo in Montreal. It is a great conference, and you can deduct from the smooth operation that it has been organized before. In fact, this was the 22nd edition of ConFoo! Quite an accomplishment! I had two talks this year. The first one...

    Welcome to issue number two hundred and fifteen of Hashtag Jakarta EE! This week I started with a trip to Jfokus 2024 in Stockholm. Directly after that, I began a week of vacation, meaning I am diving in the Red Sea while you are reading this. The Jakarta EE Platform project...

    Jfokus 2024

    Tuesday, February 6, 2024 - 12:21 by Ivar Grimstad
    Jfokus is an excellent conference, and the 2024 edition was no different from the previous ones. I have had the pleasure of being a fairly regular speaker there, and since they try to rotate the speakers a little I didn’t really expect to speak there this year. However, due to...

    Welcome to issue number two hundred and fourteen of Hashtag Jakarta EE! I arrived back home from my January JUG Tour with visits to the JCP 25-Year Anniversary Party, Nashville JUG, Seattle JUG, and Portland JUG yesterday. But no rest for the brave.

    Portland JUG 2024

    Thursday, February 1, 2024 - 11:50 by Ivar Grimstad
    I decided to take the train from Seattle to Portland as it is the most convenient way of going between those cities unless you have a car. I’ve been told that this train usually is very reliable and punctual. This time, however, there was a mechanical issue with the train...
