International Conference For Java Technology Becomes The Largest Independent Java Event In The World!

International Conference For Java Technology Becomes The Largest Independent Java Event In The World!

Santa Clara, CA - The International Conference for Java Technology - JC2 - attracted more than 2,500 attendees, representing 25 countries from around the world. It was the largest gathering of Java developers since JavaOne. The event, which took place September 24-27, featured four days of technical sessions and a two-day interactive exhibition. SYS-CON MEDIA, and JDJ, sponsors of the event, hosted recognized Java experts, developers, leading product vendors, and IT professionals.

Delegates had the opportunity to master new skills from an exceptional lineup of educational tracks designed for users of all levels, with special sessions dedicated solely to advanced Java gurus. More than 60 sessions were offered, with over 100 hours of instruction. Presentations covered the latest developments in Java and related technologies such as XML, Web development, wireless devices, and databases.

Joshua Duhl, technical chair, says he received a lot of positive feedback: "Developers found that the breadth, depth, and degree of technical coverage was very strong, and in most cases exactly what they were looking for." In addition, Duhl said the exhibitors were pleased with the traffic, and reported that the quality of leads and caliber of the people they were talking to was high.

The bustling exhibit floor was filled with more than 50 vendors, providing attendees with the opportunity to preview the latest Java tools. "JC2 was a huge draw for Ejip.net," said Dave Johnson, the company's CEO. "Our booth was full of Java professionals who were sincerely interested in learning about our service offerings in Java. Additionally, our team learned a great deal at some of the presentations at the conference. Ejip.net will definitely attend next year."

According to Ajit Sagar, editor-in-chief of XML-J and a speaker at the conference, "The atmosphere at JC2 was very reassuring in that the Java community has serious implementers in the market who are addressing complex issues like distributed transactions, Enterprise JavaBean usage issues, and B2B marketplaces. All in all, there was less hype and more food for thought for Java developers. I also saw representation from several companies I had never heard of, testimony to the fact that SYS-CON is reaching Java communities around the globe."

Jason Westra, CTO of Verge Technologies Group and EJB Home columnist, concurred: "JC2 proved to be a significant event for the Java community. There were exhibits by major industry players like Computer Associates and Borland, all showing major commitments to Java. The show also excelled as a forum for smaller vendors like the Middleware Company and Ampersand Corporation, marketing Enterprise Java services and new Java products. Presentations discussed everything from EJB to the J2ME and provided real-world experiences for the audience. Overall, the show represented an extremely dedicated and professional cross-section of Java professionals. A big thanks to JDJ for organizing the event."

Plans are already underway to present the International Conference for Java Technology in 2001. Check out our Web site for more details!
