Java Posse Roundup 2010 - Day 4

The 4th and final day of the Java Posse Roundup 2010 went off very well. Sessions included several business oriented ones (which I skipped), tips for IDEs, Functional/OO hybrid languages and increasing adoption, happy programmers, version control options (git, mercurial, svn, etc.), code reviews and a lot more.

Afternoon I mixed and published episode 300 of the podcast (which we recorded on Thursday night). We had a lot of snow during the day and it was still snowing pretty hard in the afternoon, so after getting the podcast out, I went and joined the group watching Hitchcock's Vertigo in front of a warming fire and hacked with Tor on the ZenWriterFX application a bit more (as well as transitioning to Mercurial on Bitbucket in the hopes that it would be a bit more user-friendly than git with Github).

Last night we headed out for a pretty spectacular meal at Django's up at the resort. Lots of small taster dishes, and some amazing food (and wine too). Had fun riding back down on the town shuttle as well, where we had pretty much the entire bus singing 99 bottles of beer on the wall :-).
