You woke up Saturday morning and realized that the Java Mobile & Embedded Developer Days, the conference with 26 intermediate to advanced technical sessions, 14 lightning talks and 12 poster session that you wanted to attend since it was announced, closed it registration on Friday at midnight and you forgot to register.
In WWII the bombardier would yell, "bombs away" as the bombs left the airplane.
One of the goals of the Mobile & Embedded Developer Days was to get all of the mobile & embedded developers together in one meeting at a given location to hear the premiere collection of intermediate to advanced topics given by the industries most knowledgeable presenters.
I am thinking that there is a good chance that one of the most interesting presentation formats at the Mobile and Embedded Developer Days, January 23-24, won't be the technical sessions or the lightning talks but the poster sessions.
Back in December organizers of the Mobile & Embedded Developer Days (January 23-24, Santa Clara, CA) were trying to decide where to have the social event.
Today is the last day for the Early Bird Discount. For $175 you can attend a 2 day, 25 session, 21 lightning talks, and 4 poster sessions conference on java mobile and embedded development.
One of our content reviewers was signing up for the Mobile & Embedded Developer Days last Friday and discovered that the price was incorrectly posted at $225. Now most of the US was out shopping on Black Friday but since this was a Brit you can understand why he was working.
If you haven't had a chance yet to look at the Java Mobile & Embedded Developer Days agenda do so. This is really a revolutionary conference in the Java Mobile & Embedded space.
Crammed into 36 consecutive hours you'll find 25 sessions, 21 lightning talks, and 4 30 minute poster sessions.
November 13, 2007, a day I'll remember for a long time. It represented the day we launched the community and the day I could official announce why I had left the comforts of the JavaDesktop and JDK Communities for a startup Mobile & Embedded Community.
Of course some people thought the 13th was a terrible day to start the community. It was the 13th after all.
I had a few minutes tonight before turning in so I thought I put it to good use and review the 35 submissions for technical sessions in the upcoming Mobile & Embedded Developer Days. Of the 35 talks I ranked 23 talks as "must haves".
