Happy new year 2009

So, we are in 2009. As always, it's a good time to sum up the past year, and plan for the future. Of course, it's not the only moment for that, it's just that it seems to be in the ambient mood ;)

So, what next ? A little report about top things on 2008, and some previsions ? General topics or more personal ones ? Tech or not ?

Well, at least I will list some topic that were important to me, and we will see if a emerging design emerges ;)

- I met really interesting people in 2008, and I would like to especially thank you Bruno for the time spent with us, I hope to work again with you. I would also thanks my team for the good time spent on developing software this year. Other cool people are lurking on #tapestry there were really surrealist and funny moments. And there is all the others I'm forgetting, but thanks for all the good time.

- I miss perhaps one of the best opportunities that I will ever have in 2008. I will have to be less timorous this year, more self confident.

- Java-the-language died in 2008, and perhaps it's a cool new. I only hope that it won't stop the JVM evolution. Moreover, Sun is not in its best wealth to say the least... I can't imagine my future on a MS platform, that's clear (even if F# and C# 4.0 are becoming thrilling). So, perhaps it's time to look more carefully at Android...

- A little think for my Grand-mother who died a 3 weeks ago...

- That's 4 years that I'm Paris, and almost as long that I work on Linagora. That's a long, long time. I will have to do real software developpement in 2009, that's for sure.

- I'm playing with Scala for almost 18 months now, but only for kid work. Perhaps it is time to start real projects with it now...

- I'm developing with Tapestry 5 for almost 2 years now, it's really a wonderful framework. Thank you Howard for that piece of architecture, it's a great work !

Oh, wait, perhaps there's an emerging design here ;)

So, what next for 2009 ? That will have to be a year of major evolution, both on a personal and a professional point of vue. Perhaps it's time to go outside of France, perhaps it's time to come back on the south. Let's see how it can be done.

So, let's go for 2009, let's take the opportunies this year !

Tapestry 5 Final is out !

At least !

After almost two years of public alpha/beta releases, Tapestry 5 final is out !

The vote for the 5.0.18 release succeeded this night, so perhaps not all the resources are already up to date, but it should be updated soon.

So now, spread the words !

The next BIG task for the community is to write a great and powerful third par component library, something like GWT-EXT. Chenillekit seems to be the best candidate today, even if it's in no way as polish and broad as gwt-ext.

So, Tapestry 5 community, join our force to make T5 really attractive !
