Building your schedule for the 2006 JavaOneSM conference?
Tip off, why you should not miss these JCPSM Program driven events at the show.
First, make a note of the Java Community ProcessSM (JCPSM) Training scheduled on Monday, May 15 2006, and hosted by the Program Management Office(PMO) at the Argent Hotel, Franciscan I, in San Francisco.
It's a one-day session from 11:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. PST in which you will become knowledgeable about the premier JavaTM standards body in the industry. You'll learn about the JCP Program, what it is all about and how you can leverage it to best support your Java projects. The rigorous JCP JSR review process will be explained by the pundits themselves. You'll familiarize yourself with the requirements of the spec lead role. And you'll acquire the knowledge indispensable to developing a JSR proposal and taking key JSRs deliverables to the finish line. End of the day, you'll build community savvy that you can later on teach to your colleagues. And as a bonus exclusive to JCP Training attendees at JavaOne you'll get a pre-view of the upcoming JCP.org site - a new version of the current JCP virtual home enhanced with friendly features designed to help you become an effective user of the site. You'll be given highlights of how you can best leverage the JCP.org site and its new powerful features designed to support high levels of cooperation among experts and help Spec Leads and Expert Groups deliver timely and quality Java standards.
Everyone interested in finding out more about the JCP Program and the community around it is invited to attend, JCP membership is not required. Your contact for this event is Liz Kiener at Liz@jcp.org.

Every year it draws a 'who's who' mix of Java technology architects known around the world, spec leads who have signed their names on the most popular Java standards, JCP Executive Committee representatives, the chair of the JCP who announces the winners of the JCP Annual Awards. It's a unique opportunity for JCP members to network with top Java experts, and with other JCP members. Your contact for this event is Max Lanfranconi at Max@jcp.org or tel +1 408 404 6893.
