Dear Apache Jackrabbit users and developers,

as Michael allready announced we'll organise a 2nd Edition of
.adapto(Berlin) this september.

Based on the feedback of the attendees from last years .adaptto()
we're trying to change some things.
The most interessting point for you might be the range of Topics:

Last year we did focus on talks that were based on the sling stack.
For this year we also would like to open it for sessions focused on
JCR without having the direct connection to
Sling. With this step we hope to bring the communities of Apache
Jackrabbit, Apache Felix and Apache Sling closer together and learn
from each other.

Here are some aditional things we'll have to / want to change:

- Location
Since Betahaus on the one hand is not available at the given dates,
and on the other hand there was some room for improvements regarding
the location (like space for more pariticipants), we had to relocate
the event. We did find a location which fullfills all requirements
without losing the industrial style we had in Betahaus last year. As
soon as the last details have been clarified we'll anounce the

- Length
As some of you might have noticed, this years edition is three instead
of the two days from last year. The reason for that is that we would
like to give you more time for interaction and also give 'newcomers'
the option to learn some basics of the frameworks on day one.

- Conference-"Style"
Based on the feedback we would love to see more interactive sessions
and workshops. But since this is again a community driven event,
everybody is more then welcome to discuss which topics might be worth
to be adressed and which style would be a matching  (workshop, front
session, hands-on session, lightning talk, panel discussion). We
really would like to have an active discussion here in the
mailinglists and hear from you what you would like to do or to know.

We'd be happy to get some feedback of your thoughts about this
conference. Feedback from last years participants as well as ideas an
proposals from any potential participant for this year.

Best regards,
