On February 19th, I did one of my most favorite talks at the Harrisburg JUG
. Titled "Keeping a Relational Perspective for Optimizing JPA", the talk is about some of the database centric performance tuning techniques I've utilized for JPA (and the persistence tier in general) over the years. I am very glad I finally found a JUG interested in this relatively advanced talk!
As usual, the Harrisburg crowd was great and I'm proud to say I once worked in the central PA area. Indeed, it seems to be one of the few areas in PA that seems to be enjoying vibrant economic growth, despite national trends recently.
