In the next time im speaking on the following conferences:
25.09-29.09: JavaStarter Days/EKON: Workshops: Java FAQ - oder die häufigsten Probleme in Projekten, Architektur und Design mit Java
21.11 SOA-Kongress: Session: Testing SOA
27.11-29.11: JAX Asia conference in Singapore: Sessions: Why architecture? and Java EE 5 Business Tier Patterns
I like such activities - short vacations between project(s) :-). During these talks/workshops we could discuss some topics from my blog or book more interactively.
Sometimes are conferences more efficient for communication, than funny Web 2.0 stuff .-).
