The Devnexus developer conference will be held in Atlanta, Ga from March 10-11, 2009. It is organized by the Atlanta Java Users Group and is basically the continuation of AJUG’s DevCon events which were held in previous years and they were always very well-received.
Together with four other members, we are right now finalizing the list of speakers and presentations for the conference, finalizing the registration website and preparing some marketing material. Well, and most importantly between now and March we need to get word out.
To me this is the first time planning an event of this scale and it has been a fun learning experience. The conference has been over six months in the making and is organized entirely by volunteers in their respective spare time.
I certainly cannot wait for the actual conference itself. We have an extremely high-profile line-up of speakers covering a wide range of topics around the Java platform as well as dynamic languages and RIA. As we make the final push towards the conference I plan on posting additional information as soon as it gets available. Keep an eye, though, on the conference’s official website at http://www.devnexus .com/
