SOA Events for 2008

I'm excited about some of the SOA events coming up this year. I'm considering attending Gartner's back-to-back Application Architecture and Enterprise Architecture summits over 5 days in June, and I've already attended a local 3 day Business Architecture event this year.

My challenge is selecting conferences and training sessions that have the best value-for-money. We all have limited budgets, and time is valuable as well. Thankfully, it's not like there is a shortage of events. I've been using Todd Biske's excellent SOA, BPM, and EA Events calendar to keep track of them all.

Do any of you out there have plans to attend SOA conferences this year that you would recommend?


  1. Gartner is okay, but it's so expensive! I haven't planned anything yet, but I've got my eyes peeled for anything in San Diego :-)

  2. Good question - I'm looking at a couple of ZapThink and TIBCO offerings, but I'm not sure what I'm going to end up attending.

  3. I went to JAX India last year, and it was pretty cool.

  4. IBM's SOA conference (Impact) looks good - Plus it's in Vegas!
