An Informal JavaOne BoF

Posted by mortazavi on May 15, 2006 at 11:00 AM PDT

As JavaOne grows, more and more BoFs and informal gatherings are bound to happen in parallel with the main conference, catering to special needs.

This Tuesday evening, one of these informal BoFs, focused on the Apache / Derby project, will be held on the sidelines of JavaOne 2006.

Feel free to join and socialize with others who are interested in database technologies implemented in Java. We expect attendees and contributors from Sun, IBM and elsewhere.

We have only Java DB's very own product marketing manager, Rebecca Hansen, to thank for her ceaseless efforts to pull this through in the last few hours before JavaOne formally begins. Thank you Rebecca!

Here's the official announcement for the event.

You are cordially invited to join others in the Apache Derby community on Tuesday evening for

An informal Derby BoF at JavaONE 2006!

hosted by Sun and IBM

Come learn What's Cool and What's New in Apache Derby -- an all-Java database -- from Derby committers and community members. Have rousing conversations on subjects such as "The Power of Java in a Database", "Derby is a Real Database (ACID & 50+GB!)", and of course, "Is It a Hat or a Horse Race?" Beer, wine, softdrinks, and very nice snacks provided!
