We got a lot of interest for this meeting and would like to announce that we will have a gathering in Oldenburg, Germany on Friday 23 till Sunday 25 September. To reduce the costs the meeting will be shared with the Oldenburg Linux Developers Meeting 2005 group: There will be cheap accommodation for those that bring their own sleeping bags and mattress. See for more information on Oldenburg and how to get there by car, train or plane: If you haven't added your name to the interested people list on the wiki please do so soon: We hope people can arrive on Thursday evening so we can start fresh and early on Friday 23th of September. Since we know that there has also been a lot of interest of people outside Europe we would like to make this our "European" meeting and schedule a "Worldwide" or "Regional" DevJam++ meeting in a couple of months to give more people the opportunity to attend. If you are interested in helping to organize that please add suggestions to the Wiki: Cheers, Mark -- Escape the Java Trap with GNU Classpath! Join the community at
