NetBeans Day 2005 Big Success

More than 500 people attended NetBeans Day 2005, filling the conference room to capacity.

JamesJames presented. The room was packed, and people were standing against the walls. It was really exciting to see the turnout. More than 500 people (I'll get the final numbers later) listening to NetBeans presentations on a Sunday afternoon.

JonathanJonathan talked about building developer communities.

Books300 copies of the NetBeans IDE Field Guide were given to the first 300 attendees that picked up their name badges. I am really excited about this book. This book is current for NetBeans 4.1, and it is nice to get another NetBeans book into the retail channels.

Book SigningThe book signing at the reception following the presentations was a success. From left to right: Christopher Webster, Charlie Hunt, Patrick Keegan, and Ludovic Champenois. This book was a real team effort, and I want to thank Patrick, Ludo, Charlie, Chris, and Gregory Crawley for their efforts. Everybody had day jobs, but they took their time to contribute the content, and they worked as a team to make the book happen in time for JavaOne. Thanks again for your hard work.
