Poll Result: DEVOXX Highly Acclaimed, but JavaOne Still Considered the Premiere Java Conference

This past week's poll shows that, while DEVOXX is considered to be a great Java conference, JavaOne is still consided the premiere Java conference by most people who express some knowledge of both conferences. A total of 223 votes were cast. The exact question and results were: Is DEVOXX now the premier Java conference? 24% (54 votes) - Yes 42% (93 votes) - Only if there are no more JavaOnes 4% (10 votes) - No, another conference is more important 26% (59 votes) - I don't know 3% (7 votes) - Other The results of the (unscientific) survey reflect the prominence of both DEVOXX and JavaOne within the Java developer community, with JavaOne having the edge in terms of importance. The voters consider DEVOXX to be the second most important conference. No one who disagreed chose to name a conference other that JavaOne that ranks above DEVOXX in importance. The high "I don't know" vote is not unexpected, since it's difficult to appraise the importance of conferences you've never attended. You can guess, certainly, based on reading reports from the conferences, and assessing the significance of the major news events the emanate from each conference; but, a more conservative approach is to select "I don't know" is you really don't have personal experience with one or both the conferences in question.
