The AJUG sponsored Atlanta Java DevCon (http://www.ajug.org/devcon2004/) has released a tentative schedule (but not posted it on the web). The $50 registration fee gets you breakfast and lunch in a day that runs from 8 am to 6 pm. My talk on J2EE security is scheduled for 1:15 pm, just after lunch, and runs for an hour and a half. It’s been smartly positioned opposite a talk on Swing & JGoodies – good call. I’m covering a J2EE topic opposite a J2SE topic. Something for everyone.
I’m also looking forward to Jason Chambers’ case-study style session on large web apps (is Delta.com big enough for you?) and Neal Ford’s talk on Open Source MVC Frameworks. I’ve entrenched myself in Struts not because I know it’s the best, but because it’s the de facto standard. This talk will give me a jump start getting into Tapestry and WebWork (Cocoon just seems like overkill).
