The number of people on the waiting list for JCrete was the same as the number of attendees. JCrete is and will remain successful because the attendees are either seasoned software developers or are eager to learn from others.
But for me, the atmosphere is the main reason for attending this event. Everyone is friendly and is willing to discuss whatever is on your mind. There are no official speakers. Everyone is accessible and willing to share.
After participating in JCrete unconferences I know who’s doing what. If I need to find an answer to a question on a particular Java-related technology, I know who to ask. Networking at its best. And no, I’m not talking about people who can give me work. This is networking of people in the know.
But more importantly, this is probably the best vacation a Java developer can think of. Three hours of session a day followed by relaxing at the great beaches while continuing professional discussions with respected people. This works perfectly for me.
I hope to be able to come to each of the future JCrete unconferences if circumstances permit. I also hope to be able to organize a similar event in the city of Odessa, Ukraine next summer. But I don’t want it to be limited only for Java developers. In 2015 the words “I’m a senior Java developer” will sound like “I’m a master of a Phillips screwdriver”. Modern programmers needs to know several programming languages, don’t they?

Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure. Compute and network infrastructure are fast moving down a software-defined path, but storage has been a laggard. Until now.
