Yes, Virginia, There is a JavaOne Call For Papers
It's true, it's true, it's finally here: the 2005 JavaOne Call For Papers.
So now the big question is: what do we want to do with it?
Here are 3 ideas to get you started, no matter who you are:
Got a great idea for a talk? Some nifty technology you'd like to describe in detail? Itching for the worldwide fame and fortune that speaking at JavaOne is sure to bring? Then bring it on! Submit your paper at the CFP site above.
Generate ideas for things you would like to see at the conference. What topics or speakers would be so compelling that you would have to attend and bring all your friends and children and pets? What technology areas do you feel need more coverage? Which ones need less?
Is there anything in particular that you'd like to see us Sun geeks cover in-depth? Do you like the typical talks we give on things like performance, in-depth Swing details, or the latest feature descriptions for the release du jour? Let us know to make sure we drum up appropriate talk submissions ourselves.
So put those thinking caps on Real Tight and let us know what you'd like to see at the conference. Our maini goal is to have content there that would make people want to come to the conference. Understanding what people want to see is critical to crafting the set of talks we end up with.
So how do we get this feedback loop going?
Great Question! I'm so glad you asked!
