Last night's Java meet was good. The Java guys are all very enthusiastic, which is great. And very young.
Jeremy is a thoroughly bloody nice chap, I must say. I've found that he's got good reason for getting up so bloody early - he's not mad after all. We also seem to have arranged reciprocal lunchtime curries, one at hos local, and one at mine.
Sam is a very clever young chap, I must say. I managed to keep up with most of what we was saying, though. I think. I'm not so sure about Steve, though.
Later in the evening, I had a good chat with James Strachan about Groovey and Jython. I was wittering on about the difference between syntax and semantics, but I don't think I got my point across. I suspect that this is because I was almost totally incoherent by this stage.
There were too many people there for me to retain everyone's name, I'm afraid, what with my crap memory and the Red Stripe. So if I spoke to you and haven't mentioned it, that's why. ;-)
I'll certainly go again. A nice bunch of blokes.Posted to Java by Simon Brunning at December 16, 2003 10:48 AM
