Escape the Java Trap! - GNU Classpath Hacker Room
Fosdem, Saturday/Sunday 26/27 February 2005, Brussels, Belgium
UPDATE: Presentations are now linked below!
The Fosdem organisation has generously offered the developers of
various projects around GNU classpath the opportunity to meet face
to face in their own developer room.
We have brought together a wide range of different speakers from
various projects that together provide a free software alternative to
the proprietary java platform. Developers from these various projects
will come from all over the world to discuss cooperation and to make
development plans to the next year.
You are very welcome to join us and learn about the IKVM architecture
and how to freely mix and match traditional java and .net applications
and libraries, how GNU and Apache developers can and should work
together, how you can do rapid GNOME desktop development through
java-gnome, how researchers are using GNU Classpath to do cutting edge
research into Just In Time compilation, see demonstrations of
lightning fast native eclipse, learn what will be possible with GNU
Classpath and GCC 4.0, whether Kaffe will ever release their version
1.1.5, what we think about compatibility, freedom vs control and
learn how you can create your own GNU Compiler Collection frontend for
languages such as the 1.5 java programming language.
