The preliminary schedule for the Mobile, Media, and eMbedded Developer Days has been published.
The schedule for the Mobile, Media, and eMBedded Developer Days (M3DD) has been published and is available at https://developerdays.dev.java.net/nonav/agenda.html .
Like last year this is an action packed two intense days for intermediate to advanced Java ME application developers. As it stands right now there are twenty six technical sessions, thirteen lightning talks, and four poster sessions.
This years Keynote address will be given by Jeet Kaul, Vice President Client Software Group and Eric Klein Vice President of Java Marketing. Craig Gerig, the Director of Java ME Development will follow them with a Mobility Roadmap.
From there on the diversity of Java ME will become immediately apparent in the technical sessions. Media talks on Tru-2-Way, The New Java TV Stand for Digital TV in Brazil and Creating Blue-Ray DiscTMGames and Menus using Open Source Tools are balanced against embedded talks on Effective Energy Management Through Java, Squawk for Java ME for Embedded Devices and Swarm of Brian. Traditional Java ME talks are highlighted in Does Your Mobile Speak Java FX, MIDP-3 - What it Brings to Developers, LWUIT, and Mobile Widget Development and Project Cupuchin - Energizing Rich Mobile Media. We'll also cover the traditional tools topics of Java ME Platform SDK, Eclipse and special session on The Heart of Parameteric Development as well as new JSRs like JSR 290: Web UI for Java ME Applications. Finally we'll show off a couple of the community projects like Diamond Powder and Floggy.
It's worth noting that while we have thirteen slots for lighting talks not all of the lightning talks have been selected. These 7 minutes talk will give you a glimpse into a particular topic and in some cases will give you an lead in for further discussions that you can have with the presenters during the four poster session times.
And of course we're planning another dinner just like last years at the end of the first night at Maria Elana's Mexican Restaurant. It's the perfect ending to the first day's activities.
So right now you've got enough information now to pull the trigger and sign up for the conference. No more I'll wait till the schedule comes out before I commit. Early Bird pricing of $175.00 is available through November 22 and is a $75 savings over the standard conference price. Seating is limited and if we sell out with the Early Bird Special pricing we won't make any additional seats available (the building is only so big and being a historical building expansion is discouraged).
