Once again, Java developers & evangelists from Sun will be heading
to Antwerp, Belgium this December 8-12 to participate as a Premium
Partner of the 2008 DeVoxx Conference.
DeVoxx - formerly known as JavaPolis, is put on by the Belgian Java User Group & is one of the largest Java developer events in the world. It's truly a fantastic event where Java developers can mix & mingle with technical luminaries - not to mention a great chance to eat Belgian french fries & stock up on chocolate!
As a Premium Partner of DeVoxx, Sun will once again have a keynote slot at the event plus several expanded technical sessions. Since we've got Java SE 6 Update 10 on the horizon & JavaFX is due this fall - you can bet that Sun will have a LOT to talk about with the Java community. We'll be working up some killer demos as well!
Why the name change?
As everyone knows, Sun does own the trademark for Java. By having an independent name, the DeVoxx conference organizers are able to take the conference in whatever direction they choose. You can hear from Stephan more about DeVoxx and the name change. Regardless of what it's called, you can be sure the Java community will be in attendance! Registration is open now - http://www.devoxx.com .
See you in Belgium!
