J and Beyond, an International Joomla® Conference in May 18th - 20th, 2012, Bad Nauheim, Germany is coming and the deadline for submitting proposals for sessions is on 1st April.
J and Beyond is back for the third year. For three days in May Joomla! developers and site builders from over 30 countries will gather in Bad Nauheim, near Frankfurt, right in the heart of Europe. Whether you're single or with family, for those of you that live here in the Western Hemishere this may be the perfect time to take that vacation trip you alway wanted to take to Europe.
J and Beyond is your opportunity to: Learn from others, Present your ideas, Plan for the future, Meet the people behind the avatar AND most importantly - to have fun!
The program for J and Beyond is created by you the participants through a public "Call for Papers" and this year for the first time J and Beyond will be integrating the Joomla! Project Roadmap sessions.
Any and every participant has the opportunity to present a paper which can be either a presentation, tutorial or workshop. This is your opportunity to not only meet your peers but to share your ideas, experiences and projects.
Before submitting a paper, the conference folks ask you to please spend a moment or two to consider if it is appropriate. If you think it sounds like something you would be interested in attending then you are off to a good start.
A simple product demonstration is probably not the right presentation for J and Beyond, the attendees are more than capable of downloading software and checking it out for themselves. Think beyond the obvious and try to propose sessions that will truly inform, educate and engage with the unique audience at J and Beyond. More details and ideas are available online.
