"Batteries included" is one of those catchphrases that has long left the humble origins and is now applied to almost every new development in IT.

The questions one often forgets to ask are:

  • Do they fit?
  • Are there enough of them?
  • How long do they last and are they rechargeable?

In this webcast presentation Tom Geudens, author of Resource-Oriented Computing with NetKernel will fill in those questions for NetKernel and show you what batteries are already there and how to create your own new batteries. Don't miss this informative presentation.
