Notes From the 2009 JavaOne Conference

The numbers were a bit down from previous years and perhaps there was a little less buzz, but I found this year's JavaOne Conference to be as interesting and fun as ever. As always, I was part of the Sun Developer Network team that covered the general and technical sessions for the conference web site. I was also host for a number of "Man/Woman on the Street" interviews with conference attendees.

I found the sessions to be uniformly excellent. It seemed that the quality of the presenters and their demonstrations at these sessions was exceptionally high. I hope those of you who went to the conference were equally impressed with the sessions. If you didn't get a chance to attend the conference, you can view video replays of the general sessions.

You can find all of the articles covering the sessions here. I covered the following sessions:

I also had the opportunity to cover the general session for CommunityOne West, a conference focused on communities and open source. CommunityOne West started the day before JavaOne. Cloud computing and a new release of OpenSolaris were the stars of that session. BTW, if you're into cloud computing, there are a lot of good cloud-related sessions that my SDN teammates covered during the JavaOne conference. These include:

Also see the new Sun Cloud Developer Tools site.

You can find a great wrap-up of the conference here. As the wrap-up notes, this may be the final JavaOne Conference. I've had the pleasure to attend the last 10 of them. Covering these conferences always required a lot of preparation work and a goodly amount of toil and sweat. But I always found them educational, even exhilarating. They gave me a chance to learn, a chance to share ideas, and a chance to meet some of the most interesting folks on the planet -- the Java community.
