In theory, I am busy writing material for my upcoming speaking events, rather than writing terribly illuminating posts on my blog (see what I did there?). In actuality I am being lazy and have pretty much taken January off for a recharge.
In the spirit of doing something which ticks both the event-speaking and blogging boxes, this is a quick update on the conferences I'm confirmed for so far. Put the following dates in your diary - these are my first international solo speaking events:
7th March - QCon London - Concurrent Programming Using The Disruptor (sadly I can't stay for the whole conference as it clashes with the only holiday I had booked for 2012).
23rd May - GOTO Copenhagen - Concurrent Programming Using The Disruptor & War Stories.
25-26th May - GOTO Amsterdam - Concurrent Programming Using The Disruptor.
The presentation will be more of a user's guide to the Disruptor than anything we've done before. An hour isn't a lot of time to cover all the functionality everyone might want to see, so I'm still trying to work out the balance between giving an introduction/overview for those who haven't seen it before, and going into some of the cool features that have been added since I first started blogging about it. If there's anything you would particularly like to see covered, let me know - I'll put the most frequently requested things in there.
Ideally I'd run a workshop session at some point, but that will require quite a lot more preparation, so I'll only do that if there is interest in it (if someone wants to fly me somewhere interesting to do that so much the better!!).
Maybe I'll see you at one of these events?
