I'll be attending FrOSCon, and will also submit a talk for Apache Derby.

At the moment, it looks like the talk will be an overview of Apache 
Derby, information about the new features in the latest release, and a 
little bit about the Apache Derby community.

If any of the users or developers have requests for something they would 
like to be included in the talk, feel free to post a suggestion. I can't 
guarantee anything (the proposal also have to be accepted by the 
organizers), but I will consider the suggestions.

Anyone else going to FrOSCon?
