In the year 2022. there will be two JavaCro conferences. The first in May in Tuhelj, and the second in October in Rovinj
The spring JavaCro conference is ahead of you. The conference program will be supplemented by some more lectures that have been announced, but the lecturers did not manage to make an official application due to their business obligations. The agenda will be activated by 20.4.
We invite you to come to Tuhelj, to not only listen to great lectures and improve your knowledge and talk to other participants from the Java community. Dedicate some time to yourself in the Water Planet of Hotel Well, relax and enjoy during evening social gatherings with top performers and get extra energy to solve everyday tasks.
After 10 years in which the JavaCro conferences were held in various locations in Croatia, most often at the seaside, this year we return to the place where the JavaCro story began - to Tuhelj. Those who have been with us from the very beginning will remember the newly completed Well Hotel and a number of interesting sessions from famous speakers, including Java Champions Gavin King (Hibernate), Juergen Hoeller (Spring, VMware), Angelika Langer (independent consultant), Geertjan Wielenga (Oracle, now Azul) and Matjaž B. Jurič (University of Ljubljana).
Many participants told us that the one-year gap between the two conferences is often a too long period in which technological progress does not slow down, but on the contrary, in the meantime a larger number of innovations appear that cannot be presented in a shorter time right after the announcement or are put "on hold" until the next conference. Furthermore, one annual conference is often burdened with many lectures in different tracks at the same time, so some quality lectures do not come to the fore or are put on a waiting list. And now even Java itself has two releases a year! Therefore, our idea is to hold two JavaCro conferences a year, one in the spring and the other in the fall, to get a faster and more appropriate exchange of information and timely sharing of news and accept more lectures. Moreover, our desire is to dedicate more time at the conference to the best practices, success stories, and exchange of experiences.
JavaCro conferences are known not only for excellent sessions and speakers but also for quality and productive socializing in less formal moments and a fun atmosphere when it is often easier to make contacts between participants and exchange knowledge and experiences, which will remain our practice in the future. Most often, these conversations and direct contact of all participants and speakers resulted in faster and better problem solving and technological optimization of solutions as well as the establishment of beneficial collaborations and partnerships.
We would like to celebrate this anniversary together and we are looking forward to seeing you at JavaCro'22 spring!
