Another short dereference blog, in a series of short dereference blogs. This one's a pointer to the upcoming chat with Scott Violet and myself on Getting High Performance from Your Desktop Client.
We've set up a forum on java.net: Planning
The whole idea here is to find out more about what Java developers would like to see. There's a thread for every conference topic (and one for ideas that don't fit in the other buckets). Help make JavaOne
