Ron Schmelzer passed this on to me: he and the ZapThink crew are hosting an SOA confab next week in Boston that plays off the "SOA is Dead" theme we've been hearing so much about, titled "SOA: The Night of the Living Dead."
And appropriately, Anne Thomas Manes, who stirred this whole thing up, will be there. She will be joined by industry luminaries Dana Gardner, Brenda Michelson, Sandy Rogers, Thomas Burns, and David Chappell of Oracle. ZapThinkers Ron and Jason Bloomberg will also be there -- on Thursday evening, July 23rd. Can this impressive assemblage of experts revive the spirit of SOA?
