GeeCON is a conference that will focus on Java and Java Virtual Machine based technologies, with special attention to dynamic languages like Groovy and Ruby. GeeCON is for everyone! Interested in new things from the world of Java and related universes – even better! The conference is aimed at software developers and architects, IT experts, students and personalities from the world of science.
It’s expected that in 2010, GeeCON might attract over 500 attendees from Germany, Czech, Poland and other countries. GeeCON is all about community, it’s organised for the community and by the community. First edition proved that the conference is more than just a great opportunity to meet for Eastern European developers.
The event is organised by representatives of Polish Java community (including Polish Java User Group and Poznan Java User Group). Some of the announced speakers: Ed Burns, Holly Cummins, Matthias Wessendorf, Peter Lubbers.
