2012


OK I am late for the ‘traditional’ past-year summary. So let’s do it short with 4 pictures…

OW2

OW2

I gave several talks at OW2Con 2012 and had fun like every year. I am also proud to be the new OW2 technology council chairman. There is just one thing to say: There are nice things to come this year!

OS X

OS X

I launched several OS X apps, just for fun and to get feedback from new communities. Check them out on the Apps menu. The end of the year has been busy but some updates are almost ready to be published, especially for my favorite app : QuickHub.

Linagora

Linagora, Open Source, Geek life

The big change of the year: Work. PetalsLink has been acquired by Linagora. Some good challenges and nice Open source stuff to develop in this new company. I am also always looking for new challenges and new languages to learn. I started the year with some ObjectiveC/Cocoa stuff as described above, then move to Ruby and finally finished the year with javascript and node.js development which is completely fun and easy to handle for a Java developer like me.

This is the most important thing of the year, no!?

Family

The most important thing of the year. Loris now have a sister: Mila.

Playing with Events in the Cloud


One more video of a talk I gave at OW2Con 2012 about a research project I am working on since two years now called Play (and not the play framework…).

« The PLAY project develops an elastic and reliable architecture for dynamic and complex, event-driven interaction in large highly distributed and heterogeneous service systems.
Such an architecture will enable ubiquitous exchange of information between heterogeneous services, providing the possibilities to adapt and personalize their execution, resulting in the so-called situational-driven process adaptivity… »

My OW2Con 2012 slides


While trying to find one free hour to give some feedback on OW2Con 2012, here are my slides from two talks I gave last week in Paris.

First talk was about what’s new in the last version of Petals Enterprise Service Bus? The session also covered what is Petals ESB, what it provides and where it goes.

One other talk was about what we are currently developing in the Play research project. The difficulty was to give a quick view of this HUGE event-driven platform. More details are coming soon on http://play.ow2.org (yes, Play platform is now an OW2 project).

I also participated to a talk called ‘Dev 2.0 at OW2’ with @sauthieg and @clementplop in which we introduced the new ways to develop using the OW2 tools and all this so-called social stuff every software forge now provides.

Coming back soon with feedback on several other talks, and some other OW2-related news.

Petals BPM


Petals BPM (previously Geasy BPMN Editor) is an open source, web-based BPMN 2.0 editor developped with GWT.

Petals BPM

Tout est dit en une seule phrase… Petals BPM est un des produits que nous sommes en train de développer activement au Labs. Cette Web application open source, développée en GWT permet de créer et d’éditer des process BPMN 2.0, d’importer et d’exporter en BPMN 2.0, XPDL, mais aussi exporter vers un fichier BPEL 2.0.

Beaucoup de choses à venir autour de ce produit, j’espère assez rapidement. Ca sera bien sur décrit ici.
