Event: Northern Virginia Software Symposium 2006: Fall Edition
URL: www.nofluffjuststuff.com/sh/2006-11-reston
Venue: Sheraton Reston
Dates: November 3-5th

What makes for a great technical conference?

* Excellent Speakers
* Timely, relevant topics
* Lack of Marketecture - "Fluff"
* Small Size - insure high level of interaction between
speakers/attendees
* Choice of sessions to attend

The 2006 Northern Virginia Software Symposium: Fall Edition has all of
the above!

NVSS 2006 (www.nofluffjuststuff.com/sh/2006-11-reston) will have SIX
concurrent sessions to choose from featuring coverage on Core Java,
Server-side Java, Groovy, Architecture, Agility and Ruby/Rails.

Experience a conference where the technical focus/presentation is the
priority.
You will not see any fluffy marketecture at NVSS 2006. Since the
attendance
for NVSS 2006 is capped at 250 people, you will have the opportunity to
interact with speakers and fellow attendees in a unique, welcoming
environment. NVSS 2006 is a stop on the No Fluff Just Stuff 2006 Tour
which will be in over twenty-five (25) cities this year both U.S. and
Canada. Since 2002, the No Fluff Just Stuff Java Symposium Series has
