Open Source development adds a new dimension to Java code, its communities, and its users. It presents both unfettered opportunity to innovate and logistical challenges involving how to share code and with whom. This year this track shines a spotlight on some of the people and projects here today, ahead of the curve in an open source world that now embraces Java technology. Sessions focus on real-world examples and experiences-both big and small, known and new-with developing and leveraging code that uses a free/open source model. Learn technical details of code bases, how to develop and contribute code, how to collaborate on projects beyond just the bits, and how these projects and processes can make your own development projects more valuable - to you as well as your customers.
