We are pleased to announce the Call for Participation in the FOSDEM
2017 Free Java DevRoom!

This year FOSDEM Free Java DevRoom will take place during one day
between the 4th and 5th February 2017 in Brussels [1], Belgium, with
the usual events and meetings surrounding the main show on Friday,
Saturday and Sunday; please, refer to the FOSDEM website for the
schedule of the whole event:

The Free Java DevRoom has become unique in that it has attracted
hackers from very different Free Software Java projects, giving the
opportunity to bring together companies of various sizes, different
project communities, mainstream core Java developers, alternative Java
language implementations and runtimes, and everything that form the
Free Java Universe, everybody participating to share their knowledge
in an atmosphere of cooperation and friendly competition.

The Java Community has never been more vibrant than now, and the final
preparations of Java 9 with Jigsaw are bringing in more contributions
and interesting discussions. A Java 10 project has also just been
proposed, those are exciting times!

Every piece of the puzzle seems to be falling "in its right place",
so, what better opportunity to come and share your experiences than
the Java Dev Room at FOSDEM!?

As always, check out our wiki for more details on the conference:
