10 Years of Jfokus

By | Community | No Comments

Last week, the Tenth edition of Jfokus took place in sunny Stockholm, Sweden (really, believe me it was sunny). The conference was three days long, with the first day dedicated to Tutorials and the next couple of days to Conference Sessions. The numbers are impressive. It had over 1700 attendees, making it the second largest Java conference in Europe, right after Devoxx Belgium. Tomitribe was happy to sponsor the event.

Enjoy!
