JavaOne 2009: Thoughts from an Interaction Designer

JavaOne 2009 was a terrific event for developers.  Great engineers in the field presented their work and gave the attendees information on the latest Java developments. Vendors of Java frameworks, tools and other useful stuff were showing their wares in the Pavilion. Lots of new stuff like the Java Store, JavaFX 1.2 and JavaEE 6 was announced.

I've been attending JavaOne since Y2K and have learned a lot about both the platform and the developers who rely on it to get their job done.

Here's a blog entry from Karen Stanley, a member of the Java user experience design team who has just attended JavaOne for the first time.

And just for fun, here's my picture with Duke.Jeff and Duke at JavaOne 2009

Deploying Java and JavaFX Consumer Applications

JavaOne 2009 is here...

Last night the entire user experience team on Java and JavaFX gathered to discuss what we do with some of the attendees at our Birds-of-a-Feather (BOF) session.

Tonight, we have a second BOF that is focused on deploying consumer applications through the web using Java and JavaFX.  For those interested, the slide presentation is available here.

Now it's back to the show...

Participate in Design at JavaOne 2009

Jeff Hoffman

Jeff Hoffman is the lead user experience designer for Java Standard Edition.

Hey There! JavaOne 2009 is almost here... The center of amazing developer activity will be the Moscone Center in San Francisco from June 2nd to 5th. Most of the exhibits and sessions highlight technology and the tools-of-the-trade for the Java developer set, however there is definitely content that is of interest to user experience designers.

I've made a list below of those sessions that are hosted by folks I know and respect. I heartily recommend checking them out. Make sure to add the ones you want to attend to your Schedule Builder since I expect that it may be hard to get in at the last minute.

I'm Speaking At JavaOne

Of course, there are the BOFs that I and my designer cohorts are hosting. We want to engage developers in an open discussion on user experience issues, help answer questions and provide pointers to useful resources.

I'm looking forward to seeing you at JavaOne 2009! Stop by the Designing the User Experience pod in the Pavilion to say hello, and come to one or both of the BOFs listed above.
