June’s Santa Clara conference will now be open to all, with organisers promising the “largest free gathering of Java professionals anywhere”.

S&S Media, parent company to JAXenter, has announced that their flagship US conference, JAXConf, will be completely free to attend.

The event, taking place 4-5 June in Santa Clara, CA, will see over 40 talks from experts within the Java/JVM space including GitHubber Tim Berglund, Netflix’s Carl Quinn and Java evangelist Stephen Chin.

“We believe that communities keep Java evolving. Collaboration and open access to knowledge can only enhance that, so we decided that JAXConf 2013 should be open to all,” explained S&S Media’s Mark Hazell.

“We hope that by opening the doors to every keynote and technical session at this year’s event we create the largest free gathering of Java professionals anywhere.”

JAXConf is the most recent addition to the JAX conference series, which includes JAX and W-JAX in Germany, as well as JAX London, attended by thousands of Java developers across Europe.

A list of current speakers onboard for the third annual JAXConf can be found on the conference website, with more to follow in the coming weeks. Registration is now open, and further details can be found on the JAXConf blog.
