QCon London

March 3rd, 2009  |  Published in Events, REST, SOA by Ian Robinson  |  3 Comments

I’ll be at QCon London next week – speaking but also attending many of the excellent sessions on offer. On Wednesday I’m presenting Steering the Northwest Passage: Beginning a SOA Initiative as part of Stefan Tilkov’s SOA in the Real World track.

On Friday, I’ll be catching up with Stefan again when he interviews Jim Webber and me on REST for SOA: Using the Web for Integration. I’m currently going through some back issue of Viz so that I can keep up with Jim’s “pattern language.”

At the end of the afternoon I’ll be joining the panel – Martin Fowler, Michael T. Nygard and Steve Vinoski – for Game show: It’s a Bullseye! with Jim Webber. After all, every quiz show needs one fake.

Speaking of all things QCon-wise, InfoQ have recently published Ryan Slobojan’s interview with me from QCon San Francisco last year. I’m surprised that there was so much to show from this. Ryan asked some great questions around REST, WS-* and SOA, but jet-lag had the better of me: thankfully, InfoQ have edited out the parts where I give up on putting one word in front of another.

    Hi Ian,

    I was watching http://www.infoq.com/presentations/Getting-Things-Done-with-REST and I wonder can you share what tools you’re using for creating the presentation. Font, drawings etc…

    Best regards,

    Hi Ian,

    I was looking for the napkin stencil again and remembered that I can find it here. Now I see I never replied to you and I feel bad about it. I think that when I went for that link I was taken by the things I found there that it slipped off my mind to come back and say thanks.

    Thank you very much for your reply! I have a chance to use it again.

    Kind regards,
