Coming to JavaOne 2009 ?
By dannycoward on Feb 27, 2009
Ahh, San Francisco in June. It has much to recommend it, in particular the JavaOne conference (cheaper if you sign up now). If you've never been before, this gives you a taste (or maybe this: illicit yet effective ?).
With more than 4 submitted proposals for every talk slot, its taken a couple months for the review teams, made up of people inside (your own Janitor included) and outside Sun, to work through the abstracts. With odds like that, and most of the talks or BOFs submitted in the four categories of: Core Technologies, Mobility, Services, and RIA looking very much like the kind of thing you'd want to go to (and even fill out the comment form for), its grim work to have to say no to so many.
This week, most of the emails got sent to let submitters know if they got lucky. If you were one of them, now's the time to start getting those slides and demos done !
