Live from Oracle CodeOne - Day One
A lot of action, energy, and fun here on the first day at Oracle CodeOne 2018. From all the fun at the Developers Exchange to the cool things at the Groundbreakers hub, we've covered it all for you! So, let's get started!
Here's a one minute recap that tells the day one story, in well, a minute!
The Groundbreakers Hub.
We announced a new developer brand at Oracle CodeOne today, and it is...the Groundbreaker's Hub - yes, you got it! Groundbreakers is the lounge for developers, the nerds, the geeks and also the tech enthusiasts. Anyone who wants to hang out with the fellow developer community.
There's the Groundbreaker live stage where we got customers talking about their experience with the Oracle Cloud, and we got over 30 great stories on record today. Kudos to the interviewers - Javed Mohammed and Bob Rhubart.
The video hangouts was a casual, sassy corner to share stories of the code you built, the best app you created, the best developer you met, or the most compelling lesson you've ever learned.
Don't forget to chat with Pepper, our chatbot that will tell you what's on at CodeOne or anything at all.
Also, check out the commit mural that commemorates the first annual CodeOne and the new Groundbreaker community.
There's some blockchain beer action too! Select the beer you want to taste using the Blockchain app and learn all about its origins!
The Keynotes and Sessions
Keynote: The Future of Java is Today
The BIG keynote first! The Future of Java is today! An all things Java keynote by Mark Reinhold (Chief Architect of Java Platform Group at Oracle), and Georges Saab (VP Development at Oracle). It's a full house of developers who flocked to a very informative session on the evolution of Java to meet the needs of developers to become more secure, stable, and rich.
A lot of insight into the new enhancements around Java with recent additions to languages and the platform. Matthew McCullough (Vice President of Field Services, GitHub) and Rafer Hazen (Data Pipelines Engineering Manager, GitHub) also talked about GitHub, Java, and the OpenJDK Collaboration.
We streamed this live via our social channels with a viewership about half a million developers worldwide!! Here are some snippets of the backstage excitement from the crew.
