What are NetBeans Days?

netbeans-dayNetBeans Day has traditionally been an event which happened on the day before JavaOne started. It would be a big Community run event before the corporate event kicked off, where Community members could learn about new developments and meet up. It was always the most enjoyable day of JavaOne for me personally with a focus on practical, hands on sessions.

There were only two downsides with NetBeans day. It was great if you were in San Francisco and attending JavaOne. Otherwise, it was hard to be a part of it. So the NetBeans Community started organising events during the year all over the world (in April we have NetBeans Day India, Greece and UK).

Like the original NetBeans Day in San Francisco, the emphasis is on lots of practical sessions based around NetBeans (which has expanded way beyond its Java roots into PHP, JavaScript, HTML, PHP, Android and many other languages) and a chance to meet lots of other NetBeans users. There is generally a wide audience, ranging from hard-core professional developers to students and beginners – all sharing a common passion for NetBeans. The main difference is that these NetBeans days are free to attend and hopefully coming to a location near you….

This is the third NetBeans Day UK, and we can offer you lots of expert speakers, some great hands on sessions, lots of cool prizes in the raffle, and even a free lunch where you can meet and talk with lots of your peers. You can book free tickets and see the full list of sessions here. I hope to welcome you on Tuesday 25th April…
