The success of Jazoon Rookie doesn't stop! As many European Universities have their exams by end of February, we will extend the Call for Paper deadline to 15th March 2009.
As the first Java developer conference in Europe to do so, Jazoon'09 is launching a competition for young speakers aged up to 26 years-old to win the chance to appear at Jazoon in front of an international audience.
An expert jury will select the 3 most interesting presentations from the incoming proposals and for the first time will confer the title Jazoon Rookie 2009 to the best young speaker. Topic proposals for "Jazoon Rookie" talks can be submitted starting immediately.
From 22 to 25 June 2009, Jazoon'09 will take place for the 3rd time in Zurich and offers an attractive program with top international speakers. With the debut of the "Jazoon Rookie" contest, 3 young
speakers will appear in the limelight for the first time at Jazoon '09 and compete for the Jazoon young star title. "Jazoon Rookie" talks will last 20 minutes each and will be broadcasted live in
front of an audience and an expert jury.
The talks offer young developers the chance to present a talk on open source or Java technology and to gather initial experience as a conference speaker.
