Heck, they'll always be welcome! There's more to life than webapp
scripting, you know....
Given the ranks of PHP people, perhaps they'll need to move JavaOne
(purportedly the world's largest annual developer conference) to a
larger building ;-)
On that note, it seems like JavaOne attendance is slowly going up after
the disastrous JavaOne 2002, right after the dotcom bust in 2000/2001.
Preliminary word is that it's completely packed today, between 15000
and 20,000...but who knows?
