20:30 Birds-of-a-Feather Session: Brainfood Gun Show: Webslinger + OFBiz Presented by: Ean Schuessler and Adam Heath --Demonstration of Brainfood Webslinger and creating great looking WYSIWYG user interfaces with it. We've been doing terrible things to OFBiz at Brainfood. Watch in disgust as we demonstrate an unholy marriage of technologies best left separated. Thrill to dark projects ranging from the expansion of Fortune 500 hegemony to the viral dissemination of mind-bending comedy propaganda. Technological scintillation probable. Amusement guaranteed. Mixed drinks consumed, perhaps provided, depending on our ability to evade the notice of conference and hotel staff.
21:30 Birds-of-a-Feather Session: Panel Discussion: Framework Release Post-Mortem, Future Release Direction Presented by: All Attending Committers, plus others invited -- Discussion of main things worked on for the Framework GA release, how it went, and plans for future framework releases as well as upcoming application releases.
