Whilst there will be plenty of learning you can soak up at the conference, those who want can get more involved and we encourage you to share your ideas and experiences. Some sessions have already been proposed, why dont you let us know what you want to see or present?
You can also come up with ideas and sessions on the morning of the conference (as with an unconference)!!
We encourage you to talk about a wide range of topics, not just specifics of the Java language, Spring, Hibernate, Open Source, OSGi, etc, but also about tools and practices - eg. software craftsmanship, BDD, TDD, Kanban, Agile and other practices that enhance our world. Due to the diversity of the Java ecosystem in terms of languages, we have many people from the Groovy, Scala and Clojure user groups will be sharing their experiences.
