Sponsor A Talk in Your Own Backyard

If you want to sponsor a talk in Austria, Germany or Switzerland, this is your chance as I will reside in good old Europe from mid-September to the beginning of February 2002 before I return to the new world. Please contact me per e-mail at gerald@vamphq.com to discuss further details.

If you want to sponsor a talk in the Tschech Republic, Hungary, Poland or elsewhere, you are more than welcome. Note, however, that I can't speak your native language and, therefore, have to fall back on the lingua franca English.


March 2001 - I started working full-time to deliver on JNLP/Web Start's promise. (Yes, I'm a professional. Yes, that's what I do for a living.)
