Jfokus 2013 with Vaadin
This is a unique opportunity for every Java professional based in Finland to attend Jfokus 2013 conference and network with other Finnish Java professionals. Jfokus 2013 will be arranged in Stockholm 4.-6.2.2013 and it is one of the largest Java developer events in Europe - 1500 attendees, over 50 conference presentations and world class speakers. Join us and head to Jfokus by ship from Turku.
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.
Check out the agenda and speakers from below. As always 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. By the way, this is the Vaadin 7 Release party, with cake of course, in case you have not yet noticed on the Roadmap.
