Status of My JavaOne 2009 Submissions

I abandoned the scattershot approach I used in previous years and ended up focusing on a very small number of submissions. (Because last year I almost killed myself at JavaOne, after all 5 or 6 or so of my submissions got accepted, plus I had the most massive jetlag imaginable. On the upside, I watched all the movies that hadn't made it yet to the Czech Republic, at 3 AM on the hotel TV. The downside included almost falling asleep in the middle of my own BOF.)

So, this year, I submitted three only. And two were accepted, with the third being an alternate:

  • TS-4247: Getting More Out of the Java VisualVM Tool

  • LAB-5566: Adding Some Oomph to the Java VisualVM Tool

  • S303886: Porting an Application to the NetBeans Platform

I'm hoping my lab (which will be done together with Toni Epple) will be scheduled after my technical session!


>>>The downside included almost falling asleep in the middle of my own BOF

I think I saw that. That was pretty funny actually.

"I'm hoping my lab will be scheduled after my technical session!" - you can influence the schedule of the lab. However you need to know when the session is first, right?

The focus of this blog is mostly on NetBeans (a development tool primarily for Java programmers), with an occasional reference to NetBeans, and sometimes diverging to topics relating to NetBeans. And then there are days when NetBeans is mentioned, just for a change.
