This year's probably biggest event in the Joomla!-world is "J and Beyond" - an international Joomla! conference, which will be held from May 30th through June 1, 2010 - near Wiesbaden, Germany.
The organization team writes:
We have a draft version of our time table and it depends on the community proposals what we do in detail on each day. At the moment we are planning a keynote on each day on a special topic.
On Sunday we are planning 3 rounds of 5 parallel sessions with each round lasting approximately 1 hour with a social event in the evening.
Monday starts with a keynote followed by 2 rounds of 5 parallel sessions with each round lasting approximately 1 hour. After Lunch we have 1 round of 5 parallel sessions of approximately 1.5 hour and a longer second round lasting 2 hours. The day concludes with the J!Oscars event in the evening.
Tuesday starts as the other mornings with a keynote, then a round of 5 parallel sessions lasting approximately 1 hour. After Lunch two rounds of 5 parallel sessions of 1 hour and 1.5 length. J! and Beyond will conclude with a closing session and a schedule finish to the event at 5:00 pm.
Between the sessions we have a lot of free time to discuss in small or larger groups. Beside the Program we offer free rooms for spontaneous sessions or talks.
Although there's no final schedule, you can view a list of proposed talks and sessions - it includes two talks about VirtueMart (by Thomas Kahl). The conference will see many "famous" people from the Joomla!-World and it's definitely worth the 99€ for one ticket (for the whole 3 days, including food&drinks).
See you there!
