Drools Boot Camp: Dallas October 25th and 26th

Yes, you read it correct! After the success of the previous boot camps, with over 50 participants in the last boot camp in June, we will do it again. Same as last year, we are having the boot camp in the days preceding the October Rules Fest, so that you can enjoy both the boot camp and the ORF in the same trip.

What is a Drools Boot Camp?

It is an informal meeting between Drools core developers and Drools users (both community and customers) where we spend a few days together doing presentations on specific topics, discussing use cases, analyzing requirements, deriving solutions, developing features and coding bug fixes.

It is a very open discussion on topics of interest of the participants. It is NOT a Drools training. It is a place to understand where we are, what are the user needs and how to move forward. So, don't bring "hello world" type of problems to be discussed. Bring real use cases and real challenges you would like to get insights on.

You can find all the details about the Boot Camp and register for it from the ORF page. The Boot Camp is completely free for ORF attendants, but if you plan to attend only to the Boot Camp, there is a small fee.

What is the October Rules Fest?

The October Rules Fest is the best technical (no-fluff) conference on Business Rules. It is a gathering of the most important researchers, vendors, consultants and users of Business Rules from around the globe. Check the speaker bios and you will get an idea... just for a start, Dr Charles Forgy and Gary Riley will be there...

Drools will also be presenting 4 sessions.

Hope to see you all there.

  1. Edson,

    I won't make it to the boot camp, but could you guys consider these issues for the drools-core roadmap?

    https://jira.jboss.org/jira/browse/JBRULES-2238
    Accumulate should be implemented with left-input incremental so they
    don't start from scratch on every left-input retraction/assertion
    https://jira.jboss.org/jira/browse/JBRULES-2239
    Batching accumulate to avoid wasteful re-propagations
    https://jira.jboss.org/jira/browse/JBRULES-2240
    True modify
