My slides from Oracle Openworld

Several folks have asked for copies of my slides from Oracle Openworld. Unfortunately, there's no printable form of them, since I did them as a JavaFX app. You'll find them at http://fxslideshowtest.kenai.com which will launch the app (with all it's rather large images) via JNLP. If you're curious about the sources, they're on kenai. The code is pretty ugly: I just slapped it together. I'm not proud :-) The code for the map browsing component is in there too. It uses the tile server from openstreetmap.org (Click and drag with the mouse to move, scroll wheel to zoom). I kinda like the map browsing component, so I'm cleaning up the source and I'll push it out to kenai as a separate project sometime soon.

I would have published it earlier in the week, except that there's a bug on Snow Leopard where webstarted apps that use fullscreen get a bus error :-( Works fine in fullscreen as a regular desktop app, but something weird happens when webstarting. Works fine on all other platforms. I gave up trying to figure out what was going on and just dropped the fullscreen startup.

Heading to Oracle OpenWorld

Next week should be real interesting: I'm spending a big chunk of it at Oracle's OpenWorld conference. I'll be helping out Scott at his keynote. As usual, I expect Scott to be fun :-). I'm doing a talk the next day down the road at the Hilton where Oracle is holding their Develop conference. Sun is leading a number of sessions on enterprise topics. I'm going to try to stretch people's minds about what "enterprise" means.
