Hello, this is Jan Lehnardt and you're visiting my blog. Thanks for stopping by.
plok — It reads like a blog, but it sounds harder!
After the US Spring Tour in April this year, I’m about to embark on the EU Summer Tour.
I’ll be visiting London, Amsterdam, Zurich and the Gran Canaria. Here’s when, how and why:
June 22nd–26th: CouchDB University & Factory, London
The CouchDB University is a a three day training course where J Chris and I teach a select group of students everything about CouchDB. With little prior knowledge, we’ll leave you with being able to build amazing CouchDB applications at small and large scale as well as extend CouchDB itself.
The CouchDB Factory is a track at the Erlang Factory running all day Friday.
June 29th–30th: Kings of Code, Amsterdam
Kings of Code looks like it is going to be a kick-ass web developer conference featuring some of my favourite web people: Geoffrey Grosenbach Joe Stump & Francisco Tolmasky. I’m fairly confident that the other speakers will be among my favourites after Kings of Code :)
J Chris will be talking about CouchDB.
It’s still in discussion, but I might talk about CouchDB and Erlang for web developers on one of the side events.
July 1st–2nd: ICOODB, Zurich
I’ll be taking the night train from Amsterdam zu Zurich to give a three hour tutorial as well as a 60 minute presentation on CouchDB at the International Conference on Object Databases. CouchDB is strictly not an object oriented database, but it stores objects and is of interest to the research community that meets in Zurich.
Prof. Stefan Edlich invited me to speak at ICOODB and I’m very happy I can make it.
July 1st–7th: GUADEC, Gran Canaria
Canonical, the kind folks behind the Ubuntu Linux distribution are pushing CouchDB to become a centerpiece of the Ubuntu desktop data synchronization infrastructure. Merrily sync your contacts, calendar data between your machines, an online backup service and share select data with your peers. And yeah UbuntuOne is also related :)
Canonical is flying me out to attend the Linux Desktop Summit to talk to desktop application developers and show them how cool CouchDB is and where it is useful for them.
Also, Gran Canria, I couldn’t say no. Thank you Canonical!
As much as I am excited about the travels and meeting all you out there, I’ll be missing three weeks in my favourite city, Berlin and it makes me a little sad.
In De Wildeman (the official CouchDB bar in Amsterdam) is having Gueuze and Kriek beer days June 30 and July 1. Me and some friends will be there for the food and drinks one of those days, but we haven’t decided on the date yet.
thanks for the heads-up. The De Wildeman waitress told be about the Gueuze beer days last week when I ordered mine. I sure don’t want to miss it!
We’ll be making reservations for June 30 for ourselfves, and you and @jchris. See you guys next week!
I live in Gran Canaria and I’ll be at GCDS maybe we could talk about CouchDB (we’re making a project on it and would be really great to hear about your opinion)
