JavaOne 2007 - Java and beyond

Reminds me of "To Infinity and Beyond" by the famous Disney character Buzz Lightyear. A brief description of Buzz Lightyear is:

"He's the ultimate good cop. Buzz proudly fights for all that is good and pure in the universe. His toughest fight is against the greatest threat ever known to the Galactic Alliance...the most nefarious force of evil in the universe...the diabolical fiend known as the Evil Emperor Zurg."

I see a direct correlation of this with how JavaOne 2007 includes interesting and compelling topics that range across the spectrum of development both for Java and beyond. This year, the conference is being expanded so that while Java is at the core, with significant emphasis on Java EE , Java SE and Java ME there are ample opportunities to present in such areas as:

  • Scripting in PHP, JavaScript, Ruby, Python and more
  • Web 2.0 technologies and mashups
  • Open Source and community development (which includes Java, OpenSolaris, OpenOffice and others)
  • Compatibility and Interoperability

The tracks are defined here and the Call for Papers end Dec 15th, this Friday. So if you have a hot Java technology topic, specific tips or tricks that you believe will help developers, then please go to http://www.cplan.com/sun/javaone07/cfp and submit your session abstract.

The Buzz Lightyear, as you realize, in this case is the COMMUNITY ... all of YOU. The community has defined what Java is and is now defining the future technology landscape as well. The greatest threat, as I see, is the platform vendor lock and not giving customers the option to choose.  With that, let me restate the description above one more time with some words rephrased:

"The Community is the ultimate good cop. The community proudly fights for all that is good and pure in the software ecosystem. Their toughest fight is against the greatest threat ever known to the customers...the most nefarious force of evil in the universe...the diabolical fiend known as the Vendor Lock In."

Once again, the Call for Papers deadline is Friday, December 15th, 2006, so if you have a talk you would like to submit, please do so asap.
