Second Annual JUDCon Boston – Call for Papers Now Open

JUDCon, May 2-3 in Boston, is one of the premier JBoss developer events. Last year’s JUDCon Boston attracted many of the best and brightest to exchange ideas on JBoss Community projects, Java EE, and cloud. And last October, JUDCon Berlin built on that momentum.

Got something to say? Say it at JUDCon Boston 2011.

The JUDCon call for papers is open now through March 4, and session tracks include:

  • JBoss Application Server & Java EE 6
  • Beyond Java & Java EE
  • Programming, Developing & Testing
  • Scalability & Cloud

Session formats include:

  • Speaking session (60 minutes) – Speaking sessions will be single-topic, technical sessions, with a suggested time breakout of approximately 45 minutes for the presentation and 10 minutes for Q&A.
  • Lightning talks (3-5 minutes) – Lightning talks will be brief talks held after dinner on May 2, 2011, and are primarily designed to be a launching pad into hacking, contributing, or discussing technical hot topics. Lightning talk ideas will be posted to a whiteboard at the event, so come prepared with your ideas.

Your speaking session submission should include:

  • The proposed track for your submission
  • Your session title
  • A 30-word (max) summary of the presentation
