Next up: FOSDEM 2009
I'm excited to be heading up to Brussels, Belgium this Friday. This is my first time at FOSDEM and I've been told it's an awesome FOSS conference. Attendance is absolutely FREE and they are expecting 5000 people up there this year. Amazing.
There is so much going on - FOSDEM has put together a great program. Check out the schedule. A couple of people from Sun will be there participating on multiple topics. For the Java Libre Dev Room see Dalibor Topic's excellent summary of events.
I'll be doing two sessions:
- An introduction and overview on phoneME Feature and phoneME Advanced, both very popular Java implementations with compact footprint and high performance
- Leading a discussion on the question whether pure GPL is still with the times and how the community and industry are dealing with increasing commercial pressure on open source projects
I also expect to be meeting a lot of people in the free and open source community and have many discussions around the future of Java, mobile and embedded platforms, and open source in general. Should be an intense and fun event!
See you there?
