I am sitting in my hotel room in Oslo, Norway, and thought I ought to write this blog entry while the memories of the JavaZone conference is still fresh in my mind.
JavaZone is possible one of the largest conferences here in Scandinavia, and so far I am impressed. The venue is Oslo Spektrum, which is big multi arena with a huge exhibition floor. The speaker rooms is however a bit out of the ordinary. My presentation was in room five, which was up on the "second floor". The seatings in the arena is very steep and thus your audience is seated high above the podium.

After my presentation, a 2nd Camel presentation was given by Rune Peter Bjørnstad, and Bjørn Nordlund. The presentation was in Norwegian, however as a dane I was able to understand almost all of it.

Later in the evening The Java Posse team went on stage.

The JavaZone conference is a very good conference. There is plenty of space in the exhibition hall, although it may seem a little crowded.

There was also a book store in the exhibition hall and I managed to spot Jonathan and mine book Camel in Action. By the way FuseSource is offering an exclusive 40% discount on the book, which you can find details here.

I went on my walk to the Munch Museum to see the arts of this excellent and famous norwegian painter. However his most famous painting - Skriget. Is not on display here but at the national museum which is a 30 min distance away using public transport.
