I was happy to be notified today that I have two JavaOne talks accepted for this year. The first is a session on Project Coin: Small Language Changes for JDK 7 in the core Java platform track. When I spoke at JavaOne 2009 about Project Coin, the feature selection wasn't yet finalized and I covered some of the general concerns that influence language evolution and spoke on feature selection methodology.
Now that additional Coin features are becoming available in JDK 7 builds, this year I expect to focus more on experiences implementing and using the new features.
My second accepted talk is a bof on Patents, Copyrights, and TMs: An Intellectual Property Primer for Engineers over in the Java Frontier track. I've wanted to put together a talk on this topic for several years to condense what I've learned from taking a few classes on intellectual property and filing (and eventually getting issued) several patents.
See you in San Francisco in a few short months!
