JavaOne LAD Call for Papers closes next Friday, October 5. Here are Java Evangelist Steven Chin's top three reasons why you submit a session:
1) Imagine a parallel world where Java is king. Where the government has mandated that all software be open-source and recognized Java as an official platform. That is exactly what happened in Brazil and it shows in all aspects of their country from government systems to TV standards.
2) A JUG in Every Village - Brazil has the most user groups of any country in the world by a significant margin. "I've stayed after JavaOne to visit several cities and gotten a great audience whether it was a large city like Brasilia or Goiania, or a coastal town like Fortaleza, Salvador, or Maceio," Chin explains.
3) A Community-Supported Conference - SouJava and the entire Brazilian user group community is active and involved with JavaOne Brazil, making it a really engaging regional JavaOne conference.
Submissions should be:
- From the community, all proposals should be non-Oracle.
- Java-related topics (not technologies such as Flex, .NET, Objective C, etc... unless it's specifically a topic about how such things INTEGRATE with Java)
- Non-product pitches
- Interesting/innovative uses of Java
- Practical relevant case studies/examples/practices/etc.
The call for papers will close on Friday, October 5, 2012 at 11:59 pm local time.
We look forward to hearing from you!
