JavaOne Latin America 2010 is a wrap - Oracle and Community!

JavaOne Brazil 2010 is over ... oh what a fulfilling experience!

Did you know that this was the first JavaOne in South America ?
Did you know that half of the talks were presented by local community ?
Did you know that several members from the community were involved in paper selection process ?

There is a unrelenting demand for Java technology in this market. Talk about the passion, most of the rooms were packed 10-15 minutes before the scheduled start time. Some of the sessions had to be repeated because of their popularity. The message from several folks was loud and clear that a bigger venue is needed for the next year as the event is expected to only grow next year. This feedback has already been conveyed to the events tea

The overall logistics, production crew, events team, security staff, and every body else functioned like a great orchestra to deliver a great performance!

Here is a collage of pictures from the event:



The complete album is available at:



More detailed blog reports are available at:

I recorded a video talking to some of the key community members who were involved in the call for papers. They gave an extremely positive feedback on how Oracle involved the community for the entire process, watch it yourself:



Here are some of the comments from the video:

SOUJava is very proud that Oracle gave country and the community a chance to participate in JavaOne Brazil.

Despite all the suspicions, SOU Java is very glad that community participated in the talk selection process.

The community is feeling that Oracle is hugging the community.

Oracle is very receptive of suggestions from the community.

Oracle's move is very right and wise one and the message is clear after call for papers, keynote, and content.

The community needs that kind of support [provided by Oracle] so we can do our best.

JavaOne is about whole ecosystem, not about one company and a few. Allowing local developers to show their projects makes JavaOne Brazil a real JavaOne.

We from the JUG community are very very happy that Oracle is listening to our requests.

I had a lot of fun, found several new GlassFish deployments, gave 3 presentations, 1 hands-on lab, 2 keynote demos, 1 impromptu discussion on Java-based Web Frameworks, 1 MySQL community event, and met/talked to a ton of passionate developers. Overall the presentations were well delivered and got supporting tweets/comments from attendees:
