Discover the Java Hub

The Java Hub is the interactive center for technologists at JavaOne and OpenWorld in Brazil. You will discover new technologies and gear, meet experts, code with open source wizards, or hear technologists talk about their projects. Don't miss: 
  • NightHacking:  a live program where developers get interviewed and show off coding tips to a global audience. All broadcasts are live streamed on the NightHacking website http://nighthacking.com/
  • Device Showcase:  a hands-on demonstration of Java-powered devices of all sizes with Java experts from Oracle and the community. 
  • Oracle Technology Network(OTN): the source for technical learning resources to grow your skills and career. 
  • Hackergarten:  the meeting place of open source coders. There are no pre-requisites, you can stop by any time, join a group, pick a feature or bug you want to tackle, and submit results. You will learn from Java EE, Java SE, Java Embedded, and JavaFX experts on how you can impact the future of Java technologies. Bring your laptop and join us for an hour or so. WiFi and power are available.
  • 3D Modeling -  a 3D printer creates clones of Duke or your own model. Experience the entire process from the modeling interface to the "birth" of Duke. All of it happening with JavaFX 3D, Java Embedded, and 3D printing.

The Java Hub is open to anyone from 10:00 to 19:30, Tuesday to Thursday, in the Exhibition Hall at the Transamerica Expo Center. The Java Hub is brought to you by Oracle Technology Network. 

There is still time to register to JavaOne and OpenWorld

Playground, Hackergarten, and Nighthacking at Devoxx!

The Devoxx Java conference, the premier Java conference which is running from November 10 to 14, 2014 in Antwerp, Belgium, is so popular because it was designed by developers for developers. In this interview, Tori Wieldt and I talk about some of the highlights including the new Playground, the place for developers to experiment with code. Other items on the 'not to miss' list are the Hackergarten, Nighthacking and the OTN interviews. Join any of these activities located in the exhibit hall for as long as you want.

JavaOne Hackergarten (and Others Worldwide)

by guest blogger Andres Almiray

It's with great pleasure that I announce JavaOne will host a Hackergarten this year once more. That's right, you did read it well, the name sticks, we're no longer renaming it to CodeGarten like last time ;-)

At JavaOne 2014, the Hackergarten has a dedicated space at the Java Hub in JavaOne exhibit hall, Hilton Union Square. The space has power, a private Internet network, white boards, and seating for 16. Attendees need to bring their laptops. You may stay as long as they want, from less than an hour to most of the three days. The format remains the same as other Hackergartens. Participants will contribute to open source projects. 

The idea is to gather people around specific topics at the scheduled times. Topics range from Java SE, Java EE, JSRs, pretty much anything Java-related. Contributions can be production code, test cases, documentation, or simply a friendly chat in order to gather feedback. If you want to host a session (help people to work on an open source project), please contact me. The project page is here and will be updated as we fill out the schedule.

We are also running Hackergartens at other conferences. The following ones are already confirmed:

JCrete - Aug 25th (in English)

JavaZone - Sep 9th (in Norsk & English)

JMaghreb - Nov 6th (in French)

Learn more about Hackergartens at Hackergarten.net.
