Opportunities at JFokus to Participate in the Future of Java

This week is the annual JFokus Conference in Stockholm, Sweden. The conference has 1500 attendees and is sold out!  

Today Georges Saab, opened the conference with a keynote following a welcome by conference organizer, Mattius Karlsson. The keynote included a focus on the Java Community through Java User Groups, the JCP, Adopt-a-JSR program, and OpenJDK as ways for community participation in the Future of Java.

FOSDEM 2013

This weekend is FOSDEM 2013--5000+ hackers, 486 lectures, 7 session tracks, 30 devrooms, lightning talks and plenty of beer!  Keynotes from Kohsuke Kawaguchi, Amelia Andersdotter and Leslie Hawthorn. The JCP is participating and presenting in the Free Java devroom; we cover Community Statistics, JCP.Next and participation though the Adopt-a-JSR program in the JCP session. Our talk title is JCP State of the nation and future directions. The Free Java devroom has a great range of talks and speakers and has been full throughout the two day conference.  It was awesome to see many Java User Group members and women at the conference. You can see the slides from the JCP session on Slideshare now.

Adopt-a-JSR Online Meeting - 27 February

In January the JCP hosted a call on the Adopt-a-JSR program to encourage JUG members to get more involved in JSRs developed through the JCP program--20 JUGS are now participating! There were over 40 JUG leaders/members on the call from around the world.  There were some suggestions to encourage more participation and collaboration between JUGs during the unrecorded portion of the call, so we are hosting a follow up meeting for JUG leaders.

Join us Wednesday, 27 February at 09:00 PST for an online meeting with JUGs, Bruno Souza (SouJava), Martijn Verburg (LJC), Heather VanCura (JCP), and Arun Gupta (Oracle/Java EE). We will  provide more details on current JUG Adopt-a-JSR use cases, and new developments. Recording and materials will be made available on the JCP Multimedia page (January meeting is there now).  Also check out the new Adopt-a-JSR organization on GitHub.
