We often get questions about how we put together the program for JAOO and it’s not an easy task I can tell you, but we, the JAOO core team, get a lot of help.
As always, the speakers at JAOO are invited by the host for the track they are speaking on and the track hosts and general subjects are chosen by the Program Committee (PC).
For this years JAOO the PC consisted of:
Kresten Krab Thorup
Aino Vonge Corry
We do not have a call for papers and the speakers are chosen for their merits; they have written the good books, created amazing software or are otherwise in possesion of viewpoints that could enlighten the JAOO audience.
The technical program is discussed first time by part of the PC in january. Every year we strive to have some new subjects in addition to the themes we always cover as Java, .NET, architecture, design and process. These traditional themes are part of the must-have stuff for a conference like JAOO, since we want to give a broad understanding of what a software developer needs to know. In fact we often choose subjects within this, which we believe the world of software developers need to know and not just what they think they want to know. This years new themes are edutainment and end user experience. This because edutainment is fun and because end user experience increasingly becomes a factor, that the developer needs to think of.
But we are always open for suggestions in the PC, so send proposals to firstname.lastname@example.org if you have a subject you think should be there in 2009.2008 JAOO | Tags: Aino Vonge Corry, Beat Schwegler, Dave Thomas, Erik Dörnenburg, Erik Meijer, Frank Buschmann, Glenn Vanderburg, Gregor Hohpe, JAOO, Jørn Larsen, Kresten Krab Thorup, monday.today.jaoo.dk.jaooexperience, Patrick Linskey, program committee | No Comments »
