We submitted a session to JBoss World 2011 in Boston last year when the call for papers came out, but sometimes you can't lose for winning. Yes, you read that right... can't lose for winning.
We got a rather special reply from the committee reviewing these sessions:
Thank you for your submission for the 2011 Red Hat Summit and JBoss World. Upon review of your “jBPM migration tooling - no one is left behind” session proposal, we regret to inform you that your proposal has been declined for the 2011 JBoss World. However, the JUDCon committee believes that this submission would be better targeted at JUDCon and we have auto-submitted it into the JUDCon Call for Papers. The second annual North America JUDCon will take place on Monday, May 2. You will learn if your submission was accepted at JUDCon in March.
Thank you for your interest in participating in this year's Red Hat Summit & JBoss World.
the Red Hat Summit & JBoss World team
Now ain't that just something?
That is the coolest 'reject' letter I have ever gotten! No room for our talk at JBoss World but we have a thing we like to call JUDCON and it has been forwarded to that committee. This is even better as I have been to the European version of JUDCon in Berlin and that is a great place to be for all your JBoss Developer needs.
Hope we make it to JUDCon 2011 at Boston in May! ;-)
