BOSUG-ian at JavaONE

Sriram Narayanan - a very active BOSUG member and BeleniX developer is a speaking at CommunityONE on May 7th. 

Here is the note from him that went out on the bosug alias.

Hello everyone !

I didn't want to announce this until I was really all set to go.

I'm speaking at the Javaone (actually, at something called
CommunityOne - day before the main Javaone events start). I'm leaving
tonight for San Francisco.

I'm speaking on the same topic that I'd spoken on at the Sun Tech Days
at Hyderabad earlier this year.

A lot of thanks from me to Sun India and to Joe in particular.

So, folks, wish me luck ! I'll be back sometime in May.

-- Sriram

Wishing you a great time Sriram! Keep the BOSUG flag flying very high!
