NetBeans Day in Germany: 16 March, 2015

Geertjan Wielenga
Product Manager

A few months ago, in December 2014, the Oracle office in Munich, Germany, was used for the first time to host a NetBeans Day. It was a big success. At that event, we immediately decided we wanted to have another day just like it and soon!

It's going to be held on the 16th of March, it is already fully booked, though you can sign up on the waiting list.

The agenda is pretty cool, split in two tracks in the afternoon:

    Are the sessions from the NetBeans Days available to watch online, and if not why not?

    We haven't filmed them so far. Maybe we'll do so this time or selected sessions, e.g., the one with Adam Bien.

    Thanks for the reply, Geertjan! I would have thought a company with Oracle's resources would be able to record and share the sessions so everyone around the world can make use of them.

    Not only does Oracle provide the location, the lunch, the coffee, the drinks, and the snacks, but it should also provide resources to record the sessions and distribute them. Wow, that's really not how open source communities work, at all. Instead, normally, organizations sponsor an event like this. In this particular case, Oracle is already doing everything, paying for everything, organizing everything, making everything available for these events. I agree that it would be great to record these events but certainly Oracle is the last organization in the world to have this attitude of "I would have thought etc etc" about.
