Today was the second day of the ApacheCon US 2008 Hackathon in New Orleans and I was able to attend. For most of the day, I was able to sit at a table with Martijn Dashorst and Bruno Borges from the Wicket community. It was nice getting to meet both of them in person and talk about Wicket, Rio de Janeiro and Holland.

I tried to spend most of the day doing something productive for Wicket. I was able to submit a couple of patches for issues currently in JIRA, and Igor already committed one of them (WICKET-1619). Martijn utilized the Apache resources (sitting next to Wendy, a Maven committer) to resolve a long-standing request to include javadocs with the Wicket builds.

All in all - a very nice experience. I can’t wait for the conference to actually begin tomorrow.
