News: TheServerSide.com's 4th annual Java Symposium is here!

  1. TheServerSide.com's 4th annual Java Symposium is here! TSSJS, scheduled for March 23-25 at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, is the must-attend conference for any Java professional looking for a forum to discuss existing projects, and collaborate with fellow community members to improve existing standards and develop new Java technologies. TSSJS is the Java community's most respected technical conference, where members of the Java space convene to discuss the most important new development innovations.

    Last year, nearly 500 people attended the Java Symposium. Almost 3/4 of attendees who attended other Java industry events felt the Java Symposium was more valuable than the other events they attended.

    Focused on server-side Java technologies and development practices, TSSJS is an exclusive gathering of industry luminaries, who have definitively influenced the way we develop today, and will develop enterprise applications tomorrow. These are just a few of the scheduled speakers and the sessions they will be presenting:
    • Gregor Hohpe - Software Visualization and Model Generation & Patterns in Service-Oriented Architectures
    • Jason Hunter - Extreme Web Caching & XQuery for the Java Geek
    • Bruce Tate - Beyond Java: Technologies to Watch
    • Heinz Kabutz - Java Specialists in Action
    • Adrian Colyer - AOP in the Enterprise
    • Geert Bevin - Flow with continuations and Dive into RIFE
    Other speakers include James Strachan, Hani Suleiman, Geir Magnusson, Rod Johnson, Ted Neward, Bob Lee, Scott Ambler, Cedric Beust, and more.

    Early registrants get a discounted price of $1595, and also receive a free book of your choice by one of the speakers. The deadline for the book is January 13, and the deadline for the early registration price is February 24, so don't put it off.

    We hope to meet you there!

  2. I was sad to see that Hani only got a oneliner as introduction. Does that mean he doesn't know a lot?

    :)
  3. I'm glad you're keeping it in Vegas. I can cover the costs playing hold em ;).

    TSSS is definitely one of the better conferences. You can drink beer during the sessions and hang out with Pat Benitar at the Imperial Palace afterwards. ;-)

    I'll be there. I have not missed one yet.
  6. do you plan to record the sessions like javapolis and javaone does?
  7. I'm very honored to have been invited to present a couple of sessions at TSSJS. I'm really looking forward to the event and am very anxious to meet other speakers that I currently only know through email and blogs. Thanks for what looks to be another nice conference!

    Wow it costs $1595 to attend, how can an average java programmer afford this price to attend the conference?

    Usually companies pay. Travel expenses to Vegas are usually low, though.

    Yes, and it does represent good value given the quality of the sessions, IMO.

    Maybe from the US. Vegas is not great to get to from Europe. Only Virgin flies direct even from the UK, and it can be a long trip from elsewhere.

    A hint: if you're travelling from Europe, try to book early. It can make a big difference to the airfare. In my experience, booking early results in getting a pretty good price, compared to anywhere else in the US. Book late, and with only one direct carrier you could be in trouble.

    I attended the second one (couldn't make last year) and it is worth it. Just the quality of people presenting and attending rock.

    Is it my imagination but the price does seem to be creeping up.

    Also worth noting there are cheaper hotels on Strip (I stayed at the Flamingo) and budget airlines like Southwest fly into Vegas.

    +1 TSSS Europe (London?, Paris?, Madrid?).

    I am looking for an excuse to go to Europe... I have not been since 2000.

    On the other hand, going to Vegas from Tucson is usually darn cheap.

    Isn't JavaPolis a good excuse ;-)

    Not if you live on the east coast...

    I drove to the first conference near Boston. I flew to the second in Vegas and did not attend the third. I am annoyed at the organizers for refusing to alternate between coasts every year. Organizers: why always Vegas? It's not cheaper and sometimes the company doesn't pay.
