Devoxx for Java Developers
By Tori Wieldt on Nov 08, 2011
The Devoxx conference for Java developers is in Antwerp, Belgium next week. Again this year, Devoxx is sold out. But if you can't attended, don't despair, Parleys.com will stream the conference LIVE from Wednesday until Friday (subscription required). I'll also be there, representing Oracle Technology Network and interviewing the Java experts during breaks. Don't miss it!
Also, Devoxx is asking the community to submit and vote on (technical) questions for the Fireside chat on Tuesday afternoon, conference keynote speakers, and the technical discussion panel on Friday morning. Make sure you post your questions (also vote for the most interesting ones) and we'll try to get them answered for you!
If you are attending Devoxx, here are some events not to miss:
