Does anyone know if they are going to have the special reception for the certified profesionals like they did last year? I was so bummed I had to miss JavaOne last year, but I am going to be there for sure this year. Did anyone attend this reception last year? They had it at the Nikko Hotel on Wednesday night.
Here is the email message I received for the one LAST YEAR from "firstname.lastname@example.org" with a subject of "Invitation to a Reception for Sun Certified Professionals at JavaOne." Thanks so much to anyone who may have any information on this.

SCWCD - Thanks to HFSJ!!
They'll probably have one - I was at the one at JavaOne in 2005. (And that was a lot of fun, finding all the others who've taken the tests.) I should be there this year, once I get final approval from my supervisor to register for 2007's...

SCJP/SCSNI/SCBCD/SCWCD/SCDJWS/SCMAD/SCEA/MCTS/MCPD... and so many more letters than you can shake a stick at!
Just thought I'd be good and let anyone checking here for more information know. While I was on line this morning to get my materials for Java University, there were folks handing out cards with information on the reception.
Date: Thursday, May 10, 2007 Time: 6 - 7:30 PM Place: The Westin San Francisco Market Street (formerly The Argent Hotel), 50 Third Street, Metropolitan I Ballroom
Prizes for the first 50 attendees and drawings for cool prizes (and yes, you must be present).
(Updated because those crazy San Franciscans changed the name... though the cards at JavaOne still say Argent...) [ May 08, 2007: Message edited by: Theodore Casser ]
