Subject Re: Will your project feature at ApacheCon North America 2010?
Date Tue, 23 Mar 2010 02:35:47 GMT
Apologies for the broadcast message...

In thinking about ApacheCon 2010, I began to wonder if there is interest in creating an "Enterprise
Java" track for the conference. I think there is the potential for a lot of interesting content.
Many of our projects are busy implementing JSR specs for Java EE6. Also, the OSGi Alliance
EEG has created several EE-focuse specifications with more on the way. I'm sure each of our
projects have a number of internal developments which we're also interested in sharing.

I'm guessing that some of our projects have already initiated their own track programs. Which
I think is fine. I don't think it's a conflict to have technology specific tracks. However,
if you're interested in joining forces, let me know. I think it would help foster greater
interactions between our projects and also result in a very interesting conference track.

To help to start aggregating potential presentations, I've created a Wiki page --

At this point, we do not need to identify specific presentations. But we do need to insure
that there is sufficient interest.

If I've left out any projects who you think might be interested in participating, please feel
free to pass this along...
