Devoxx versus JavaOne

Devoxx or JavaOne?
Thats the question...

It's really not that difficult to choose.
If you are based in Europe (as our company is), then you will for sure get more value for your money attending Devoxx instead of JavaOne.

However, if you look at a technical perspective, then still Devoxx comes on top in my opinion. The opening talk is by Mark Reinhold and one of the last talks, "Java state of the Union" is by no other than James Gosling. (I don't even need to link to him, every Java developer should know who he is), and there are tons of fameous speakers: Brian Goetz, The JavaPosse, Heinz Kabutz, Richard Bair and Roberto Chinnici just to name a few. (No pun intented for the others I didn't mention).

So it shouldn't come as a big surprise that I am also attending Devoxx. If you are going, lemme know and we can hook up!
