Apache Karaf Cookbook Launch Party!

Last night I held a book launch event for Apache Karaf Cookbook. I wish my co-authors would have been able to be onsite for the event, however travel and other commitments made that impractical.

The night consisted of a short speech on the release of our latest book, then transitioned into two hours of guided Wine, Oils, and Vins tastings. So much fun!

I've collected below some photos from the evening. I'd like to thank the staff of O'Leva Oils & Vins Tasting Room for their excellent service and presentations.
