As the first Java developer conference in Europe to do so, Jazoon'09 is launching a competition for young speakers aged up to 26 years-old to win the chance to appear at Jazoon in front of an international audience. An expert jury will select the 3 most interesting presentations and these 3 young speakers will be invited by the organizer, including flight, hotel and 3 days conference pass, to present during Jazoon'09. For the first time ever, Jazoon will confer the title "Jazoon Rookie 2009" to the best young speaker. Topic proposals for "Jazoon Rookie" talks can be submitted starting immediately.

With the debut of the "Jazoon Rookie" contest, 3 young speakers will appear in the limelight for the first time at Jazoon '09 and compete for the Jazoon young star title. "Jazoon Rookie" talks will last 20 minutes each and will be broadcasted live in front of an audience and an expert jury. The talks offer young developers the chance to present a talk on open source or Java technology and to gather initial experience as a conference speaker.
