I get to write the first entry Hopefully it won't be the last.
JUDCon voting for the community track is going on now. If you haven't voted then you should do so now. The tracks are shaping up to offer an excellent in depth series of talks on many of our projects. There's still time to register for the event as well, so get going as the places are running out rapidly.
Finally, we're working on the hackfest format at the moment. I'll post something about that later once we have a better idea, but I can say that they're going to be very free-flowing and dynamic. So if you have an idea for something you'd like to present at a hackfest and get feedback on from JBoss engineers and the wider community, come along on the day.
I'm looking forward to seeing many new faces at the first ever JUDCon!
