As is tradition, Bouvet will have a stand in the Expedition Area at JavaZone. This year we've created a fun new competition for JavaZone attendees, with great prizes to be won. The details of the competition are currently top secret, but here's a hint :)
If you'll be attending JavaZone, be sure to drop by the Bouvet stand and say Hello!
Each year, JavaZone is arranged by javaBin, the Norwegian Java User Group, which comprises of a group of volunteers who work all year to put the conference together. This year 3 Bouvet employees have been involved in the planning of JavaZone. These are:
- Gareth Western - Program Committee and JavaZone Kids.
- Qadeer Khan - Program Committee.
- Mark West - Program Committee.
From what we've heard this year's JavaZone promises to be the best yet, and we can't wait!
