…well, 11:00 on the evening of July 23. As I mentioned on Business-Driven Architect, I’ll be hanging with the SOA Zombies, believers and one famous SOA obituary writer, at ZapThink’s “Night of the Living SOA Dead”:
“On July 23, 2009 dozens of experts, pundits, and influential guests will gather in Boston, MA for an evening of networking and discussion on the topics of Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) and Enterprise Architecture (EA). Open to public enrollment and attendance, the topic of discussion for the panel will be the recent news and discussion about the "Death of SOA." Is SOA really dead? Is it dying? Or is it changing? And what about those that are currently doing something with SOA or even just interested in the topic? Are we the "living dead"?
As a way of encouraging dialogue, networking, and communication within the SOA and EA, ZapThink is hosts its evening ZapForum networking events throughout the world. At this upcoming event on July 23, 2009 in Boston, MA, guest experts expecting to attend include Anne Thomas Manes (Burton Group), Dana Gardner (Interarbor Solutions), Jason Bloomberg (ZapThink), Brenda Michelson (Elemental Links), Sandy Rogers, and Ronald Schmelzer (ZapThink).”
The gathering is Thursday, July 23, 2009, 5:30PM-8PM ET @ M.J. O’Connor’s Irish Pub, 27 Columbus Avenue, Boston, MA 02116. For more information go here. But before you do that, note this 50% off discount code: PRTDISC.
