The Devoxx conference will be held this year November 16-20. As usual it will be located in Antwerp, Belgium in the the great Metropolis movie theater and conference complex. This is a very large conference that is very similar to JavaOne, but for a fraction of the price (even factoring in the international airfare). Devoxx is community driven, put on by the BeJUG, the Belgian Java Users Group. But don’t let that fool you-Devoxx is a first-rate Java conference. Fellow Novajugger’s and recent NovaJUG speakers Andrew Glover and Dan Allen spoke there last year, as did Sun’s Carol McDonald, also one of our speakers from last year.
The Northern Virginia Software Symposium is just around the corner. This time the bi-annual software conference will be held November 6-8 in Reston, Virginia.
Many Novajuggers have been to this conference (including me, of course) and the reviews are always great. If you haven’t been to one before, do yourself a favor and go! They have group discounts, so round up a bunch of folks from your office and save yourself some money.
