Hi guys and gals, hope all is well. IBM Impact 2009 is on its way. I will be there. Somehow, I managed to end up presenting 7 lectures and 4 labs. I am not sure why I do this to myself. I don't even plan out to do this many sessions. Last year, I took great pleasure in delegating. This year, the delegation just did not happen. Though I do have great co-presenters and lab advocates, so I may be able to escape here and there to see some other great sessions. Even though I am quite busy, I plan to take a REST!!!
I am the track lead for Application Development and Web 2.0. One of the major themes for this track is REST. We have great sessions in the technical track around REST. Here is the list of sessions (Lectures only, will Blog on Labs soon), their speakers, and their time slots:
