NetBeans Day 2006 was a huge success - Read all about it!
Monday, May 15, 2006
10 am - 6 pm
Argent Hotel, San Francisco
Learn from the experts what's happening with the NetBeans IDE and platform at the third annual NetBeans Software Day! James Gosling - the father of Java technology -- as well as other Java technology luminaries were present to discuss the future of Java developer tools and the rich client platform. NetBeans Day featured a keynote by Joshua Bloch and Neal Gafter who are also known as "Click and Hack - The Type-It Brothers." The event is also a great opportunity for community members to meet each other face-to-face, see demos of the next generation of NetBeans software and learn how easy it is to develop NetBeans plug-ins and extend the NetBeans platform.
NetBeans Software Day 2006 took place on Monday, May 15, the Argent Hotel in San Francisco. It is a companion event to the JavaOne 2006 Conference which began the following day. You do not need to be registered for JavaOne — NetBeans Software Day is free for anyone who wishes to attend.
The first 400 attendees received not only a 256 MB USB drive but also a complimentary copy of the second edition of the soon to be published NetBeans IDE Field Guide covering all the new 5.0 features! A reception was held immediately after the event, you are invited to come and meet NetBeans software partners and developers.
Agenda is subject to change.

Neal GafterNeal Gafter is a software engineer and Java evangelist at Google. He was previously a senior staff engineer at Sun Microsystems, where he led the development of the Java compiler and implemented the Java language features in releases 1.4 through 5.0. Neal is coauthor of "Java Puzzlers: Traps, Pitfalls, and Corner Cases." He was a member of the C++ Standards Committee and led the development of C and C++ compilers at Sun Microsystems, Microtec Research, and Texas Instruments. He holds a Ph.D. in computer science from the University of Rochester.
James GoslingJames Gosling received a BSc in Computer Science from the University of Calgary Canada in 1977. He received a PhD in Computer Science from Carnegie-Mellon University in 1983. The title of his thesis was "The Algebraic Manipulation of Constraints". He is currently a VP & Fellow at Sun Microsystems. He has built satellite data acquisition systems, a multiprocessor version of Unix, several compilers, mail systems and window managers. He has also built a WYSIWYG text editor, a constraint based drawing editor and a text editor called `Emacs' for Unix systems. At Sun his early activity was as lead engineer of the NeWS window system. He did the original design of the Java programming language and implemented its original compiler and virtual machine. He has recently been a contributor to the Real-Time Specification for Java, and most recently was a researcher at Sun labs where his primary interest was software development tools. He is now the Chief Technology Officer of Sun's Developer Products group.
Jonathan Schwartz is president and chief executive officer of Sun Microsystems.
