JUGmajster - brand new speakers wanted!

Attention, Java world! Once again, JDD attendees will select the best debutant speaker - JUGmajster. Note: the candidates come from local Java User Groups and appear on JDD stage for the first time!

At JDD we focus on creating a community-driven schedule - that is the origin of JUGmajster competition. Thanks to cooperation with Polish JUGs, great speakers from local communities get a chance to perform on a large stage, and we are able to deliver a truly relevant conference program.

How to become a JUGmajster?

Reach out to your JUG leader, who can nominate you as a candidate or apply yourself. Apply via CFP form (type “JUGmajster” in the comments section + name of your JUG).


1. One JUG can nominate 1-2 candidates, who are automatically accepted as speakers.
2. The candidate spoke at a JUG meeting at least once between JDD16 and JDD17.
3. The candidate was never a speaker at JDD.
4. All JUGmajster talks will take place on the 1st day of the conference.
5. JUGmajster speakers have all the rights of regular speakers.

Why being a JUGmajster pays off?

Have all the rights of a JDD speaker (recording of presentation available online, reimbursement of travel & accommodation costs, support from the Program Committee).

Grab the chance to become a specialist well-known to the whole Polish and neighboring Java community, and be recognized as an experienced, reputable Java expert.

Gain lots of media attention - information about your success in thematic and nationwide media (i.e.: Interia Nowe Technologie).
