After a lot of coaxing and a promise that the weather will be nice (I'm not sure I believe that one but can it really be any worse than Cleveland?) some people have talked me out of my cave to attend a gathering in Toronto. April 2nd will be the first Java-GNOME hackers meeting. We will be getting started at about 10:00 am EST and I will be giving an overview of the bindings at 11:00 am. The primary focus of the event will be learning how Java-GNOME works, writing code, and having fun. If you can attend in person please let us know on the java-gnome-developer list. Otherwise I hope to see you on #java-gnome irc.
