|Beer in Barcelona: Thomas Morgner, Matt Casters and others at Pentaho Community Meetup 2009.|
At 9.00pm on Tuesday September 21, Luc Boudreau is giving a talk about olap4j at Java One. I will be in the audience, on hand to answer the questions that Luc considers beneath his dignity. This is a Birds of a Feather (BoF) talk, which means that it will be less formal than a usual conference talk, you can attend even if you have not paid to attend the conference, and yes, there will be beer.
Lastly, I will be attending the 3rd annual Pentaho Community Gathering on September 25-26 in Lisbon, Portugal, and giving a talk about what's new in Mondrian and open-source OLAP. Meetups in previous years have been great fun, a good chance to network, and a great chance to find out all of the great stuff that the Pentaho community is working with and extending the Pentaho BI suite. Even though Portugal is better known for producing wine, I wouldn't be surprised if at some point there was beer.
