Hendrik Ebbers and Timo Brandstaetter were onsite during JavaOne managing the voting machines. They recently added a beautiful interface to show the top sessions every day.
Special thanks to Kevin Nilson for organizing the end-to-end experience of Geek Bike Ride and Ignite sessions at JavaOne. Thanks to Bruno Souza for preparing our Brazilian barbecue the weekend before JavaOne. Bruno also organized the community forum, a full day of sessions about community and technology the Sunday before JavaOne.
Thanks to Bruno Souza, Edson Yanaga and Fernando Babadopulos for doing some JavaOne social media at parties, during the WIT panel, community keynote… and whenever I couldn’t be at two places at once.
It is so much fun to work with all of you. You never say no unless you are not available. Only with your involvement were we able to expand the JavaOne experience. There is no community like the Java Community. Thank You!!!
