This week is the Devoxx conference in Antwerp, Belgium. It's one of the biggest yearly Java conferences, with 3,000 attendees. The conference consists of two parts: the University (Monday and Tuesday) and the Conference (Wednesday, Thursday, Friday).
I'm going to the Conference, which starts tomorrow.
Is anybody else going there (or have you ever been there before)?
I just met one of our fellow moderators, Martijn Verburg. He held a funny talk titled "The Diabolical Developer" which he also did in March in Las Vegas, where we met up with a whole group of JavaRanch moderators.
The conference is interesting. I just went to a talk by Mark Reinhold, the Chief Architect of the Java Platform Group at Oracle. He talked about the new features in Java 7 and what's to come in Java 8 and 9.
