I don’t know what the acronym stands for, but JAOO 2010 is in Aarhus, a place I’ve never been to in Denmark; Oct 4-6. It’s a popular event and I’m honored to be among the speakers. What happened was, before I started at Google, they invited me to come and talk about my Doing It Wrong piece, which I regard as summing up my years at Sun. After I joined Google, I wrote back and asked “Can I talk about Android too?” so I’ll be speaking twice on successive days.

Observant readers will note that this is the week after I speak in Tokyo; which has to constitute a major travel-planning failure. I think the events are (just) far enough that it makes sense to go the long way round, stopping in Vancouver for a couple nights’ sleep at home in Vancouver. Blecch.

Aarhus is fantastic!!! Really small city and absolutely beautiful. Be sure to rent a bike!

I'm pretty sure you'll love Denmark! If you have a chance, try to stay a day or two in Copenhagen, bike around, take a walk and have coffee on the Strøget, and, of course, have a beer on the Nyhavn (just drop in a store, get a Carlsberg or a Tuborg, and sit down along the edge).

When visiting Aarhus make sure to take in a beer or a meal at "Åen" - the river going through Aarhus. It is not far from the JAOO venue. I can also recommend the art museum right beside the conference venue "Aros".

See you there!
