TechBookReport on 'NFJS 2006 Anthology'
TBR writes "The No Fluff Just Stuff (NFJS) symposia have achieved a reputation for providing the geekiest content to its developer audiences. Primarily focused on Java and open source technologies, the symposia major on delivering sessions devoted to leading edge technologies presented by the leading practitioners. Audiences are deliberately kept small, and the usual presenter/audience barrier is actively discouraged. The aim is to encourage sharing of knowledge and experience as much as possible. Now, thanks to the good folks at the Pragmatic Bookshelf, a selection of speakers from the 2006 symposia each get to do one or more chapters in this first NFJS anthology."
