Contribute to your favorite open source projects at the Hackergarten during the JavaOne 2014 Conference in San Francisco. We will have a dedicated space at the Java Hub in the Exhibit Hall, Hilton Union Square. The space has power, a private internet network, white boards and seating for 16. Stop by any time, join a group, pick a feature or bug you want to tackle, and submit your results. Attendees will learn from Java EE, Java SE, Oracle Java Embedded, JSR Specification Leads from the JCP, and JavaFX experts on how you can impact the future of Java technologies. Bring your laptop and join us for an hour (more or less). Wi-Fi and power are available. Monday and Tuesday from 10:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., and Wednesday from 10:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the Java Hub in the JavaOne Exhibition Hall.
We are just starting to fill out a preliminary schedule of the sessions for the Hackergarten now - you can sign up your project or some to one of the sessions to contribute to your favorite project. If the time you are looking for is full, no worries! Just head over to the Hackergarten and we fill find space for you! Bring your laptop and stay as long as you want--less than an hour, or most of the three days. The format remains open, the same as other Hackergartens around the world. Let me know know if you want to be added via this blog or on Twitter @jcp_org.
