Lunatech Research, with the Riviera JUG and the INRIA French research institute are organising the Riviera DEV conference in Sophia-Antipolis on the 20/21 of October 2011.

As you all know the Riviera JUG has been holding monthly conferences for more than two years now with an average of 50 java developers every month, as well as yearly larger conferences with an average of 150 people, such as "Sophia fait sa Java" in 2009 and "Sophia Conf 2010" last year.

This year we’re launching our yearly conference under a new name: Riviera DEV, which we expect we will keep every year this time. And we’re growing again, with two days of conference on the Thursday 20 and Friday 21 of October, featuring 33 conferences split in 3 parallel tracks and a common keynote. We will have a Java track, a more general Web track and a Research track held by INRIA where we expect research and industry attendees will meet.

A few speakers have already been confirmed, including our very own colleague Nicolas Leroux who will present Play! Framework, but many more will be announced in the coming weeks, including some real superstars, so watch our for our program.

Registration is expected to open early September.
