Last week Stefan and me took part as guests at the para//el conference in Heidelberg. The actual program was separated into 2 keynotes, one per day, and 36 talks, 18 per day, three at a time (in parallel). Right at the beginning it was said, that we were two out of 150 participants, which, I would say, leads to a nice atmosphere. It wasn't difficult to attend a discussion or meet other people during the pauses and I haven't further experienced, quite contrary to other conferences, any large queueing at launch. Why? Well, someone encountered that a table, if placed correctly, offers space for more than one line at the buffet, which is quite a good news! 🙂

At synyx, we are looking at vert.x for an upcoming project where we are building a system that will need to scale under load. The tag-line of vert.x is effortless asynchronous application development for the modern web and enterprise, which fits the bill, so I decided to play around with it a little bit.
