JCON EUROPE 2024 is the in-person Java community conference in Germany organized by the Java User Group Oberpfalz in cooperation with JAVAPRO Magazine. Java is our profession and JCON is our passion and a lot of fun. We love to provide Java developers with a spectacular 100 % live conference open to the entire Java-User-Group communities.
In 2023, more than 1,000 participants from 34 countries and five continents had joined the JCON EUROPE 2023.
The 9th JCON edition is presented as an in-person conference – again in a multiplex cinema so that you can watch code on the BIG screen! We have summarized all information about the location and how to get there here:
Focus on Core Java & Cloud-Native Java
JCON traditionally focuses on Core Java, Serverside Java, APIs and Frameworks because that’s what we as Java developers work with every day. However, the main topic will be Java-Cloud-Native and Microservices, because this is the future of Java and a must-have for Java developers.
Well organized and a great location. I love the cinema environment. Absolutely awesome! It felt like the whole organizing team really cared about every single attendee and speaker.
„ JCon offered a fantastic opportunity to meet people I had previously only known online, allowing for meaningful in-person connections. The event excelled in bringing together speakers from around the world, making it a truly global gathering. The impressive venue, featuring a large hall and a huge screen, added to the overall experience and created a captivating atmosphere. The positive energy and enthusiasm felt throughout the event made it a memorable and enjoyable experience. Based on these highlights, it would be highly beneficial to continue organizing JCon in the future.”
“Great venue with good seating. I really liked that there were multiple food options and a great assortment of cooled drinks available in the fridges. The speaker support was really good as well. Clear communication up front and good support from the people in the room. Everything just worked. Great to see.”
"I really liked the location with its high ceilings and a lot of natural light as well as good food options and a little park close by."
“The attendees! The vibe! The organizing staff! I was really blown away by the warm, thoughtful people I met and the great conversations I had. Not sure if there's a way to keep this around, other than I met a lot of great speakers so invite them back. I also appreciated that there were more women attendees than in some conferences I've been to. Thank you for a great event and all your care that you put into it.”
“The people. The audience was engaged with the talks, other speakers were great, crew was friendly and helpful. Thanks for having me!”
“The venue was magnificent! It was fun seeing old friends too.”
“I enjoyed the fact that is was not a commercial but community driven event. There were interesting speakers you don't find on other more international and commercial conferences”
“The organization, the shirts, and the food were great, with a wide selection; the beverages were everywhere at the gatherings and parties. And there were a lot of speakers. Overall, it was a great experience. I would love to join again”
“The location, the easiness of registration, the dinner, the friendliness and approachability of the organizers“
“The cinema location was great, the cinemas are great for the speakers and the huge screens are very nice for the audience. The free chilled drinks where also awesome. I liked that the JCON team tried immediately to fix all upcoming issues, everyone was very engaged to make it a good experience for everyone.”

We love Java. That’s why we want to bring together Java developers from all over the world. To learn, to connect, to have fun. The feedback we receive proves us right and motivates us to keep going.
JCON is a team effort and a conference by developers for developers. The JUG Oberpfalz does the heavy lifting in organizing everything. But the heart of the conference are our speakers with their sessions.
We often work in completely different branches, but Java is our common denominator and connects us all. Over the years, not only acquaintances but friendships have formed on account of JCON!
