While I did try ;-) to take a much-needed break over the holidays I was still quite busy updating the Java Mobile & Embedded Developer Days web site with the latest information, speakers, and sessions.
If you haven't noticed, Sun SPOTs are really starting to take off. I blogged about some developments a couple of months back but this month we have a "Sun SPOT triple-shot" for you!
13 months after inception we're now really seeing the Mobile & Embedded Community taking off in a big way. Be it accesses to the site, code downloads, forum activity, or external contributions of code and entire projects ... all metrics are up and the rising level of interest is tangible.
Wow, time sure is passing fast. Just a little while ago January seemed so far away ... and now it's only 6 more weeks until the Java Mobile & Embedded Developer Days conference.
Just came back from the Tech Days in Frankfurt, Germany. Thanks to the organizational team and in particular Ulrike Werneck from Sun Germany for putting this together!
If you've been procrastinating signing up for the Java Mobile and Embedded Developer Days conference - well, you've got just a little over 24 hours left. The early bird discounted rate of $175 ends November 30th.
A while back I blogged about the importance of open access to technology, in particular to network infrastructure, protocols, and bandwidth ("Open technologies need open access"). Well, it seems like the tide is finally turning.
