Open Source Central User Group – Rick Evans “shark high-fiving a gorilla with explosion behind it”
It was another great turnout to the OpenSource-Central User Group which is founded by Cake Solutions, OpenCredo, and SkillsMatter, and sponsored by FDMGroup and Hays Plc.
Regular attendees and new faces joined us on Grafton Steet, Manchester, to see QFI Consultancy’s Rick Evans talk about integrating Spring and Adobe’s BlazeDS platform to create scalable Adobe Flex-based RIA using Spring/JAVA server side.
Rick Evans, a seasoned speaker as some of you may know, kept us all intrigued and engaged as he demonstrated how to use these two enterprise-level pieces of open source software to create an application that was the equivalent of a “gorilla high-fiving a shark with explosion in the background”.
If you were not lucky enough to be able to attend his “awesome” talk and see if he managed to do it, you can see the streaming version.
I look forward to the my second attendance of OSC UG in a few months time. Maybe I’ll see you there too!
