The Philadelphia Spring Users Group has been growing steadily. We now have close to 200 members on our mailing list and about 40-60 attendees for our meetings held every 2-3 months.
It is now time to kick it up a notch. We are, together with Chariot Solutions, arranging a FREE one-day Spring conference on September 26. The conference will be held at the Penn State Great Valley campus in Malvern, Pennsylvania which is just outside of Philadelphia.
Chariot Solutions have been organizing free conferences for a couple of years now, and this is a great way for the local Java community to be able to see industry leaders present on mostly open source related topics.
This time we will have over 15 speakers present on a range of topics including New Features in Spring 2.0, Aspect Oriented Programming, Spring Web Flow, Ajax & DWR and new support for Java Persistence API.
We have invited both members of the core Spring team, well known book authors and a number of local Spring experts to come and present on topics that they are interested in.
Speakers at this conference include
- Ramnivas Laddad, author of ‘AspectJ in Action’
- Keith Donald, Lead for Spring Web Flow
- Matt Raible, author of ‘Spring Live’
- Dain Sundstrom, Chief Architect for IBM Gluecode and Geronimo Committer
- Mike Keith, Co-spec Lead for JSR-220 EJB3
Did I mention that it’s FREE?
