Conference overview
LJC Conference #5 is a one day event where you can attend a wide range of talks, workshops and practical sessions, drawn from the experiences of those in industry. Its a great opportunity to learn with up to 30 sessions during the day, including a keynote, lightning talks, open source project overviews, a Java 7 track, discussion groups and a whole lot more.

What people said about our previous conferences (see photos):


"Fantastic day, learned a great deal and made some valuable connections with people in the industry, more of these please"
"Amazing forum. Met some of the best minds in the field. Inspired me to learn more and work harder.. "
"Brilliant time! Learnt a lot and met a lot of great people. Look forward to the next one :-)"
"An excellent opportunity to learn more about things I should know about but didn't"

Those who want to can get more involved and are encouraged to share there ideas and experiences. Some sessions have already been proposed, why not let us know what you want to see or present?

You can also come up with ideas and sessions on the morning of the conference (as with an unconference)!!

We encourage you to talk about a wide range of topics, not just specifics of the Java language, Spring, Hibernate, Open Source, OSGi, etc, but also about tools and practices - eg. software craftsmanship, BDD, TDD, Kanban, Agile and other practices that enhance our world. Due to the diversity of the Java ecosystem in terms of languages, we have many people from the Groovy, Scala and Clojure user groups will be sharing their experiences.

 

The open conference has a minimal payment to cover costs of food and venue. No payment is made to speakers from this entry fee. If you are unable to pay via Paypal, please contact the organiser directly and we will try to seek alternative solution.

    My first unconference, and I liked the relaxed format -- everyone was so enthusiastic and keen to share their knowledge and experience. I especially enjoyed the keynote, the performance panel, and @Grundlefleck's talk about collaborating with distributed team-members. Good stuff!
