Live JasperSoft Seminar

I was lucky enough to attend the JasperSoft Seminar held at their headquarters in San Francisco yesterday (March 19, 2008). There were basically 3 sessions and I personally did not get much from the seminar.

What I found interesting was that I was able to talk to Guilio Toffoli who created the iReport which is basically the GUI software to create JasperReport xml files. We talked about performance limits of the software, problems that I had with designing the queries using SQLeonardo, and other stuff.

The circle is the wheel of the car.
The point is that we will never know what the point is.
