Hashtag Jakarta EE #172

Welcome to issue number one hundred and seventy-two of Hashtag Jakarta EE!

I am back from the JCP Executive Committee meeting in Singapore where we also participated in the Java Heroes Mini Conference organized by Singapore JUG. The conference started with a panel of all JCP EC Members, myself included. The panel discussion started with a short presentation by Georges Saab, and was moderated by Heather VanCura. After the panel, there were talks by Simon Ritter, Mala Gupta, and myself.

My talk was titled How to Be a Responsible Open Source Citizen. It is a non-technical talk about how to consume and contribute to open source in a safe way.

As always, when I travel, I try to get a run into my schedule and Singapore was no exception. As always sporting my Jakarta EE running shirt. Even in the heat and humidity in Singapore, it is the best way to recharge. And work, actually. Holly is really spot on with her blog post Why Your Desk is the Worst Place to Work, and Other Life Lessons from a Lazy Developer.

What makes a run such a great place to work is … the absence of work.
