A total of 280 people voted in the poll. The exact question and results were: Would you use...
At JavaOne 2012, I spent some time with Badr El Houari (@badrelhouari), co-founder of the Morocco Java User Group and the just-completed JMaghreb Conference 1.0. The conference was held this past Friday and Saturday in Rabat, Morocco. More than 500 developers attended the conference each day -- an impressive start for a new Java conference! Java.net was in attendance, too, in the person of...
