JavaOne Beer: Save-The-Dates

I've been at Sun for seven years this June. My very first day was the opening day of JavaOne in 2000. I have attended every JavaOne; indeed, I was responsible for IBM attending the first one in 1996 when I managed to find a colleague with budget to pay for it (hi, Gabriel!)

So it's with some pleasure that this year I actually have a substantial involvement with the event for the first time since I joined Sun. My team is running some stuff on May 7 that will soon be announced there; we are acting as managers for the open source track which is appearing there for the first time this year; and we are helping connect people for track sessions, demos, informal events and even (we hope) announcements.

I also hope to host a bloggers beer bash again at the Thirsty Bear on the Wednesday evening, so if you have a blog save the date. And if you will be in San Francisco on Monday May 7, save the whole day, something good (and free) is coming!

Nice guess, but there's more.

Awesome!

Finally booked my flight to the far west of the USA. This will be a little culture shock after being used to events like Fosdem. But really looking forward to it.

This event: Licensing Emergency Room Panel featuring you, Cliff Schmidt from Apache and Eben Moglen from the Free Software Foundation sounds super useful. So great to see you tear down the barriers!
