By Janice J. Heiss on Oct 12, 2012
Noted freelance writer Steve Meloan has a new article up on otn/java, titled, “JavaOne 2012 Review: Make the Future Java” in which he summarizes the happenings at JavaOne 2012.
Along the way, he reminds us that if the future turns out to be anything like the past, Java will do fine:
The repeated theme for this year's conference was ‘Make the Future Java,’ and according to recent stats, the groundwork is already firmly in place:
There are 9 million Java developers worldwide.
Three billion devices run Java.
Five billion Java Cards are in use.
One hundred percent of Blu-ray Disc players ship with Java.
Ninety-seven percent of enterprise desktops run Java.
Eighty-nine percent of PC desktops run Java.
This year's content curriculum program was organized under seven technical tracks:
Core Java Platform
Development Tools and Techniques
Emerging Languages on the JVM
Enterprise Service Architectures and the Cloud
Java EE Web Profile and Platform Technologies
Java ME, Java Card, Embedded, and Devices
JavaFX and Rich User Experiences”
Meloan artfully reminds us of how JavaOne makes learning fun.
