Currently in Zurich, the Jazoon conference is being held. Jazoon is Europe's premier Java and Open Source Developer Conference (I just copied the words here), and for once it's not all about new Java technologies, or big corporations doing their thing. No this time, we find an interesting topic about GIS among the many presentations.
The presentation is called "Mapping, GIS and geolocating data in Java" and is presented by Joachim van der Auwera (Geosparc). In this, I wish him the best of luck. May he spread the word of Open Source GIS.
What's more is that in preparation of this conference Joachim has written an article explaining the Geomajas framework. Since this is a good read for anyone interested in either GIS or Geomajas, I thought I'd share it: http://blog.progs.be/?p=142
