What to look out for at CamelOne

The open source integration event -  CamelOne, which is being hosted by FuseSource,  is only a month away - and the agenda is coming together to provide so really interesting talks. If you haven't registered yet, there's still time - here's some reasons why you should think about attending:

Firstly, its a great opportunity to meet a lot of the developers who work on Apache Camel, ActiveMQ, ServiceMix and CXF. Most of the Apache committers from FuseSource will be in attendance, and some of them will be talking. However, most of the real talking, just like all conferences, will be the side conversations that happen in the corridors in breaks and the social events that happen after the conference days - usually in a pub somewhere.

However, there are going to be some great sessions - and I particularly like listening to the real world stories of the people who use Apache open source in production - like Christian Muller, Atos Worldline, and Christopher Hazlett from the Gilt Groupe.  There's also going to be a great session on tracking real-time weather using big data and camel by David Reiser et. al. - i've seen their demo - its awesome :).

My favorite though will probably be Felix Nikolaus Ehm, who will be talking about using ActiveMQ and  Camel to control the accelerator complex at CERN. I was lucky enough to get a tour of CERN complex a few weeks ago - its literally the coolest place in the universe.

There's also going to be some great subject matter talks and discussions - the full agenda, as it stands is here.
