Is it worth becoming an individual member of the java community process?
I understand that I would not be able to share any knowledge I would gain with the company I work for. My thinking is that as I would become more aware of the changes going on and therefore I should become a better* developer.
Is anyone here a member of JCP? If so can you give me some idea of what is expected from an individual?
My company joined the JCP and I served on JSR-75; my coworkers served on two other JSRs. The onyl reason you should join as an individual member is if there's some JSR you want to join, i.e. you think you are an expert in some field and can add value to the JSR development process.
Screaming fools! It's nothing more than a tiny ad:
