I'll be presenting a half-day tutorial on Tapestry at this year's ApacheCon -- an afternoon session on Saturday, Dec 10. This is a great chance to learn a lot about Tapestry and Tapestry 4.0 especially ... I'll be highlighting new features, such as annoations and the improved validation framework. The format will be based on my labs, though I don't think the time constraints will support interactive labs; instead, I'll be doing the work as we go, explaining Tapestry and Tapestry concepts while getting various mini-applications running in Tapestry.
ApacheCon is in San Diego this year, which offers fewer distractions than Las Vegas, but will be a pleasant change nonetheless.
