Blog from October, 2010

I am delighted to let you know that I will present IzPack at the Devoxx conference in the "Tools in Action" sessions! (see

I will make a demo during my talk, and I would like to use an installer showcase from one of yours :-)

A community-contributed example would be indeed much more interesting both for the audience and for me as a speaker. It's not that I don't have a few examples for a demo, but I'm sure you guys have something better to offer!

This is why I am launching a call for contributions: I would demo YOUR installer (and as a side-effect, YOUR software would be publicized in front of a large audience).

You can contact me by email at with your proposal. Note that:

  • I will not sign any non-disclosure agreement of some sort
  • I need to be able to show the IzPack configuration and build files so that the demo is compelling
  • the session will be recorded, so even people not attending the conference will see it!
  • I will not accept any money for your installer to be showcased.

Thanks for sending your submissions!
