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 to 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:
