Meet the Spec Leads & Active JSRs
By Heather VanCura on Nov 05, 2012
For your Monday reading pleasure, the JCP has published Spec Lead Profiles of In Progress/Active JSRs--there are 35 of these Spec Leads! Find out more about these dedicated community leaders. In preparing these profiles, the PMO also asked Specification Leads to tell about their experiences as Spec Leads. There were many themes that emerged around transparency, openness, agility and participation. This led to a related article for those interested in learning about the experience of participating in the development of a Java Specification through the JCP program, see: "Active Specification Leads Offer Best Practices and Tips for Success".
In Progress/Active JSRs were also reported on in the PMO Presentation during the last JCP EC Face-to-Face meeting in September 2012.
Now is a good time to start thinking about nominations for Star Spec Leads. Nominations for 2012 are now open. Anyone can submit a nomination for Star Spec Lead; however, we ask that you nominate an active JSR Spec Lead, operating a JSR under JCP program version 2.8 (introduced October 2011) or above. Nominations close 31 December 2012.
