is a new conference this year that features JBoss technologies. It's being held a day before JBoss World
. The new conference is going to be "by developers, for developers."
JUDCon 2010 is going to be co-located with JBoss World. Mark Little, the senior director of engineering and middleware at Red Hat, says that next year JUDCon will be longer, and a standalone conference. JUDCon came about because JBoss developers wanted to have a conference devoted to deep technical talks - and sessions that could be held by people other than Red Hat employees. JUDCon will have hack-fests that run late into the night. Little also discusses the sessions that they will have at the inaugural JUDCon.
