I was a speaker at Camel One last year, an event that I think turned out pretty nice for the Camel community on the other side of the open-source fence.
As an event it was nice as it wasn't Java people only nor was it J1.
We got to meet up with a lot of hardcore customers, got really good feedback on how things are used and how they are perceived to scale, lots of really good data gathered.
I'm planning to submit for this years Camel event as well.
Check it out!
