We are pleased to announce the Call for Participation in the FOSDEM
2015 Free Java DevRoom!
This marks the 12th year that the Free Java DevRoom has been a
part of FOSDEM, and also marks 20 years of Java!
This year FOSDEM Free Java DevRoom will be 31 January & 1 February
2015 in Brussels, Belgium, with usual additional events
and meetings on Friday, Saturday and Sunday; please, refer to the
FOSDEM website for the schedule of the whole event:
The Free Java DevRoom has become unique in that it has attracted
hackers from very different Free Software Java projects, giving the
opportunity to bring together companies of various sizes, different
project communities, mainstream core Java developers, alternative Java
language implementations and runtimes, and everything that form the
Free Java Universe, everybody participating to share their knowledge
in an atmosphere of cooperation and friendly competition.
It has been a long journey so far, exciting and fun, and hard at times.
But together we have made it, and Java today more than ever can count
on a dynamic and vibrant Community, innovation due to participation,
and a user base that is continually growing.
We won't sit and rest on the paved road we built, though! We are eager
contribute to the next "20 years of excellence", and we want you to
be part of it!
As always, check out our wiki for more details on the conference:
