Beyond the Java event Horizon(s)
By davidleetodd on Apr 25, 2006
Back in the old SeeBeyond days, we used to hold our annual users' group convention in Vegas every year at the Bellagio. We used to have some wild times. Jim Demetriades, our founder and CEO, started a great tradition of shooting craps with the customers, and even the odd employee. Since he would give them the chips to bet with, and let them keep their winnings, it was a great PR exercise. (Note to Jonathan....) Anyway, it may not be as wild, but this year the users' group event, known as Horizons, will be held in San Francisco just up the street from Java One! We've been in a flurry of activity here in Monrovia, honing presentations and generally getting ready. Yes, even the Unknown Product Manager will be presenting.
Besides Horizons, we will have a pod on the floor of Java One itself. Stop by and say hi, if you get the chance. No craps table, but friendly smiles all around. Check out the site for Horizons: http://www.sun.com/events/horizons2006/.
