Things are exciting at JavaOne Latin America. Even with bigger rooms, some sessions are standing room only. The interest in JavaFX is very high. Stephen Chin and Arun Gupta's session on JavaFX client and Java EE server development was standing room only, with a line of developers wanting to get in. They plan on repeating their session so everyone can see it.
George Saab, VP of development, Java platform, said in the opening keynote "Last year at JavaOne Latin America, Oracle was full of promises. This year we can say Oracle delivered on those promises: Java SE 7, JavaFX 2.0, and increasing transparency in the JCP."
The OTN Lounge is the perfect place to sit, relax and charge up your laptop. In addition to Java Champions and Oracle ACEs dropping by for informal chats, JUG leaders and members discussed upcoming events and ways to energize their local Java communities.
Everyone is looking forward to the community keynote Thursday, which is rumored to be full of special effects and surprises. Loiane Groner, JUG leader for CampinasJUG and EsJUG says "We think that everyone will like it!"
