JavaOne 2008 BOF proposal accepted

See you at JavaOne this year if you're going! I'll be co-presenting a BOF with Mark Cade on the new revised JEE 5 Architect exam from Sun Microsystems. Mark and I participated in the workshop to create the multiple choice questions and we designed and implemented parts two and three, plus right now we're heads down writing the book to go with it (phew!).

We feel that there is a lot of latent interest in the exam and we wanted to give a clear presentation on what taking the exam / certification entails and give guidance on some common gotchas that we see all the time in submissions. Finally we wanted to dispel common misconceptions that circulate perennially (my written english won't be good enough etc.). Check out the BOF description here.
