SOA Zombies Gathering in Boston: July 23, 2009

ZapForum Boston evening networking event on July 23, 2009 featuring SOA pundits and celebs

Is SOA Dead?

If so, then watch out, because SOA zombies are getting together to network at ZapThink's ZapForum Boston "Night of the Living SOA Dead" on Thursday, July 23, 2009 at MJ O'Connor's Bar in Boston, Massachusetts.

At the event, a few dozen SOA pundits, peers, colleagues, competitors, and will join in a panel on SOA's future all the while encouraging networking, drinks, food, and a hearty debate on the topic of SOA's long life ahead with a panel of distinguished guests on the topic of SOA. 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”?

Guests, Experts, and Pundits in attendance include Anne Thomas Manes (Burton Group), Dana Gardner (Interarbor Solutions), Jason Bloomberg (ZapThink), Brenda Michelson (Elemental Links), Sandy Rogers, David Chappell (Oracle), Thomas C. Burns (Intel), and Ronald Schmelzer (ZapThink).
