In case you’ve missed it, we’ve announced a BarCamp that will be running at the University of Sydney on Saturday 11th December, with a meal the night beforehand. It is a free event, so you just need to signup on the BarCamp wiki at http://barcamp.org/BarCampApacheSydney. You should also join the barcamp-sydney google group for updates.
The venue is The Darlington Centre, University of Sydney, at 174 City Road, Darlington. Registration is at 9:30am, for a 10am start.
The BarCamp is being run in conjunction with the Apache Software Foundation, and several Apache committers will be there proposing talks. However it is still run like a normal BarCamp, and given we haven’t had one in Sydney in the last year we’re expecting a diverse turn out. If you’re interested in BarCamps, want to know more about how the ASF develops software, or want to learn more about a particular Apache project, we hope you’ll join us! Even better, bring a topic to talk about of your own.
We’ve ensured that wifi, snacks and some other goodies will be provided on the day and are looking into options for lunch, depending on sponsorship levels.
If you’re not familiar with the format, you can find out more on the BarCamp site:
MaestroDev is pleased to be joining University of Sydney, Apache Software Foundation, Alfresco and IBM as sponsors of the event. If your company is interested in sponsoring the event, please let one of the organisers know via the details at the bottom of the BarCamp page.
Please help us to get the word out about the event. Hope to see you there!
After being in “stealth mode” for some time, MaestroDev is launching something new at JavaOne next week.
In the next few days, we’ll be unveiling our new website, with information on what we’ve been working on recently, and the latest of our news and upcoming webinars on software build, test, release and deployment infrastructure for Maven projects.
At JavaOne, we’ll have a booth where we’ll be discussing the company and showing off a sneak preview of the latest development in the upcoming release of Maestro 3. Be sure to come by and say hi!
It has been a few years since I’ve been to JavaOne and this year will obviously be a little different. I’m not sure what to expect just yet, but looking forward to it, and hopefully catching up with a few people. And while conferences are exhausting enough, it’ll be nice to be out of the crazy busy mode that has been the last few months!
