Jfokus 2012 with Vaadin

This is a unique opportunity for every Java professional based in Finland to attend Jfokus 2012 conference and network with other Finnish Java professionals. Jfokus arranged in Stockholm is one of the largest Java developer events in Europe with some 1500 attendees, over 50 conference presentations and world class speakers. Join us and head to Jfokus by ship from Helsinki.

Onboard a cruise ship in the middle of the icy Baltic sea, we'll arrange a late night Vaadin Meetup as a "warm-up" to the Jfokus conference. You'll have an opportunity to get an insider's view into some of the hottest technologies, meet the team behind Vaadin and network with your peers with a cold free beer in your hand.

Speakers are Josh Long from Spring Source team, Grzegorz Kossakowski from Typesafe, Anton Arhipov & Toomas Römer from ZeroTurnaround and Artur Signell from Vaadin. The topics include deep dives and status updates for the latest technologies related to "Java" development as well as discussion on how development should be done in general.

Event is free of charge, but registration is required.
