Neil, thanks for responding so quickly. It would be awesome if you could do that, fascinating topic! I’ll pencil you in for right before lunch. Always goof to break on a high.

Hi Chris, 

I'd be happy to do my Write Now, Run Anytime talk if you'd like? Description at

It has a (hopefully) fun and noisy-ish ending, so might be good before lunch or at the end of the day? 

Either way I aim to come along. 

Best wishes,

As you may have heard, we are planning the 5th annual Netbeans Day in London Friday September 27th 2019. The location is the London head quarters of Cerner in Paddington. 

I am looking at a schedule similar to that of past years;
  • 9:00 Registration
  • 9:30 Apache Netbeans Status Report
  • 10:00 [TBA]
  • 10:45 [TBA]
  • 11:30 [TBA]
  • 12:15 Writing and executing Scala with the Netbeans Scala plugin (Chris Luff)
  • 13:00 Lunch
  • 14:00 Workshops 1
    • [TBA]
    • [TBA]
  • 15:15 Workshops 2
    • [TBA]
    • [TBA]
  • 16:30 Wrap up & Pub!
I am looking for speakers to fill the slots marked as TBA. We have the capability to run parallel tracks in the afternoon if there are enough speakers. Sessions are 45 minutes in length but If you have a something that may need more time, we can work with the schedule to accommodate it somehow. The rules for acceptable topics are pretty simple, we can cover any topic or technology, but it must be applicable to Netbeans as an IDE or Platform.

To get the ball rolling I have penciled myself in to talk through installing and working with Scala in Netbeans. @Geertjan, could you be persuaded to take the status report, as you have in the past?

Nothing is written in stone yet so suggestions are more than welcome!

I am creating an EventBrite registration site to manage attendees. If however, you are a confirmed speaker you will not need to register.
