BEA Participate Rapidly Approaching

All of us at bdg are starting to get excited about BEA Participate! As you already know, we’re sponsoring this year’s ALUI and ALBPM event and I’m giving a demo of some slick integration between ALUI (ALI and ALI Collaboration), ALDSP and ALSB that illustrates how AquaLogic can be used to implement an SOA.

We’ll also be giving away some cool — yet practical — gizmos that will be sure to brighten your day. Literally.

Be sure to come by the bdg booth, pick up a free gift, and enter to win this year’s grand prize — a 30 Gb Video iPod, in bdg black (of course).

Whether it’s at my talk/demo, at the bdg booth or anywhere else, we look forward to seeing you at the conference.
