Happy new year to those of you for whom the day has changed and of course to everyone else when it happens! I just wanted to cross-post a couple of articles I've written on some of the pet projects I've been working on over this festive holiday season. They're related to the Raspberry Pi, Fuse Fabric, Arjuna/JBossTS/Narayana, vert.x and MongoD. So if you're interested, check out part one and then part two. And once again, I hope everyone has/had a very happy new year!
