Video recordings (in Danish) from my latest getting started with Apache Camel presentation

Last week I visited Århus, Denmark to give a presentation about Apache Camel. This event was organized by JavaGruppen, and OpenMinds was kind to host the event, in their beautiful office centrally located in Århus.

Thanks to Thomas Salling whom was so kind to pick me up at the train station, I arrived safely and in time for the event.

At the event we had a great turnup, of about 25 people. And we were almost out of free chairs, and space in the room, as you can see from the photos.

After the event we went for beers at Sct. Clements which is a brewery inside the restaurant.

My presentation was 2 hours and with a mix of slides and live demonstrations. And as well taking in questions. We had a 10 minutes break at the one hour mark. Giving such a long presentation is of course a challenge. The response from the attendees was positive and they didn't get bored etc. And we had about 2/3 of the attendees whom didn't know about Apache Camel.

I also had the pleasure of meeting with two former colleagues whom I haven't seen in over 10 years. It was great to see you Michael and Simon.

Søren Berg Glasius, whom is known in the Groovy and Grails communities  is head of organizing the GR8Conf conferences. The next GR8Conf takes place in a couple of weeks in Copenhagen, Denmark. So he is testing his video and presentation equipment, so we used this opportunity to video tape my entire presentation. Unfortunately there was some problems with the HDMI connection so we had to settle for VGA. But the end result is still very great. The video features both the slides and the camera feed in the same picture. This makes it very easy to follow the presentation.

Soren was so kind to invite me as a guest to the GR8Conf, so I will drop by in Copenhagen on the 23rd of March. Looking forward to see how far the Groovy and Grails have reached. We do see more and more people use Grails and Camel. Likewise the gradle build system seems to be cool as well.

The videos of the presentation is already online and you can find them here.
And the slides is also uploaded to slideshare here.

Thanks to Javagruppen and OpenMinds for hosting such a great event. I had a great time visiting Århus.
