Evolving Java Technology: an open discussion about the Java Community Process
Meeting Schedule
6:15-6:30 Pizza/Networking/Java News/Jobs
6:30-7:30 Presentation


The JCP, or the Java Community Process, is the place where companies and individuals meet and discuss the evolution of Java Technologies. The JCP is an open, inclusive process, that allows virtually anyone to join and participate. But, being a standards organization, it has its set of rules and documents, that sometimes seems too complex, what can scare away interested parties. This talk is really an open conversation with a long time JCP member, that have been battling for more transparency and simplicity in the process. No question is too basic, no question is forbidden, no comment is too bold, this conversation will try to answer everything you ever wanted about the JCP!
