Maven 3 talk in Cologne, by Jason van Zyl

I'm very proud that Jason van Zyl, founder and driver of Maven, will give a talk about Maven 3 in Cologne for the Java User Group, on November, 16th. I'm also very proud that I managed to catch another international high-end speaker for a presentation, for coming to Germany. Again, other groups profit from my preparatory work, and invited him too, now, for making a small side trip there. I will never understand, why there are few to zero cooperations between Java user groups, and where the benefit is to provide exactly the same talk in a distance of few days a bunch of miles away. Details about the talk here: http://jugcologne.eu.

Does that mean you are advocating collaboration? It sounds like you are not. Wouldn't it be great if the Java folks here in Karlsruhe could attend the same talk?

Hi David, of course I advocate collaboration. Hey, I do not speak about just joining the event or JUGs like Karlsruhe in any kind ..I speak about groups being 12 to 20 kilometers away from Cologne. Unfortunately I do not see any "collaboration" if other groups just wait for me recruiting some interesting speakers to invite them too. That is a one-way game. Collaboration for me is, if they would promote the Cologne event, if we would arrange timelines, or if they would discuss with us here about speakers and such things. Or if we could profit from them too in any kind. But that is not the case. Doing that for the n-th time (of course the speaker gives the talk there one, two days earlier, never afterwards), I'm still wondering what those guys think about "community" and "collaboration". Of course, I like it helping that also other groups can profit .. that is good for the community. But in this special case, after the fifth (?) time, I'm just feeling heavily kidded. ;-)
