Hi, Ben.

I'm in Philadelphia and airplanes. ;-)

Hi Rick,

We ran a couple in London - everyone seemed to get a lot out of them. I'm sure there'd be demand for more. The London Node User Group expressed interest in doing something together (but this Autumn has got busy suddenly!)

Whereabouts are you based?

It would be a good idea (and fun and educational) to do a couple day hack fest/education sessions on Nashorn, with the key committers and architects available.

I bet a lot of useful examples, tutorial, and best practices would pop out as a result.
