I just received the final confirmation for my tutorial at the upcoming ApacheCon Europe (are you subscribed yet? If not, hurry up: it’s a great place to be!). Time to start updating slides, handouts and other courseware: squeezing all things Cocoon in 180 minutes is going (again) to be a challenging task, given also my aim to give the audience a comprehensive overview of what’s going on under Cocoon’s hood and how to build fantastic software on top of it. See you there then: meeting Apache people will be great as usual, and German beer won’t hurt at all.
On a side note, this time I will be traveling with my better and beloved half: we are planning to drive to Stuttgart and get a few days off (the following weekend, at a very least, but possibly a few days more) after the conference. Any advice from locals or experienced visitors about places to stay and sights to see around the Stuttgart area (or on our drive back to Italy) would be greatly appreciated.
