Charles River’s David Koelle Receives Top Session Award at JavaOne Conference

Charles River’s David Koelle was awarded as a top speaker at the JavaOne conference that took place from May 7-11, 2007 in San Francisco, California. Koelle’s session, “JFugue: Making Music with Java MIDI and Illustrating API Usability,” was voted as a top session by conference attendees.

“This is quite an honor,” Koelle said. “I’m very pleased that my audience enjoyed my session so much.”

Geertjan Wielenga, Koelle’s co-presenter who demonstrated his Music NotePad (backed by JFugue), said that Koelle “presented the story clearly, coherently, with a touch of humor, and a lot of enthusiasm. The room, containing 136 people, as I later found out, was clearly totally engrossed in his story.”

Michael Nascimento, a conference attendee, wrote, “I would like to highlight the excellent JFugue talk delivered mainly by David Koelle and with special guest star Geertjan Wielenga. David is a terrific speaker, his work is amazingly cool, his demos rocked and he managed to be funny.”

Charles River congratulates David Koelle on his award.
