JavaOne 2010 is right here!

This is going to be my 12th JavaOne and first one not in Moscone :-) JavaOne is at a different location this year so is an interactive tool to help you navigate through Oracle Open World, JavaOne, and Oracle Develop.

GlassFish cheatsheet provides all the detail information about GlassFish's presence at JavaOne 2010. There are about 50 GlassFish-related sessions / BoFs / hands-on labs / panel this year so it's going to be exciting!

Where am I doing at JavaOne ...

  • Sunday - GlassFish Community Event @ Moscone South Room #252, (2:30 - 4:30pm)
  • Monday - Booth duty @ Java EE 6 booth @ Java DEMOGrounds (9:15 - Noon)
  • Monday - Java EE 6 & GlassFish video interview @ OTN lounge (2:30 - 3pm)
  • Monday - Java EE 6 & GlassFish demos at OTN party (Monday 7 - 9pm)
  • Tuesday - Hands-on lab on OSGi-enabled Java EE applications (S313522, Hilton, Plaza A)

  • Wednesday - Booth duty @ GlassFish Open Source booth @ Java DEMOGrounds (2:15 - 4:45pm)

And I'm yet to prepare a list of sessions that I'd like to attend :-)

If you are using GlassFish in deployment, love the simplicity and ease-of-use of Java EE 6, use the cutting edge builds of GlassFish 3.1, or have a comment to make about GlassFish - track me down and I'll be happy to record a quick video session with you!

  • Thursday - Its a Wrap (4pm @ Yerba Buena Gardens)

There are other dinners and cocktails planned which will be squeezed in between these parties :-) BTW, am I missing any good parties though ?

We want your GlassFish related photos! - Do you have a picture with GlassFish tatoo, hat, tee-shirt, number plate, playing cards, or any other goodies from previous or this year's JavaOne ? Leave a comment on this blog or share them at @arungupta.

Check out JavaOne and Oracle Develop community - social networking and scheduling tool for JavaOne and Oracle Develop.

For San Francisco visitors, there are several things to do while you are in the city. If you are a runner, don't forget to run over the Golden Gate bridge or up the steep hills, they are really good!

Personally I'm looking forward to meet GlassFish team members from all over the world, our community members, @IanSkerrett, @richsharples, @mojavelinux, @emmanuelbernard, @whoiswen, @terrencebarr, @matkar, @brjavaman, @fabianenardon, @BertErtman, @ktukker, @myfear, @maltron, @harshadoak, @alexgorbachev, @javaclimber, @AdamBien, @doug_clarke, @SachaLabourey, @kohsukekawa, @vivekpandey, @ghrd, @johanvos, @aalmiray,  @vanriper,  @robilad,  @rsim, and many others ...
