Tell Your Manager about JavaOne: A How-To

JavaOne is an investment in yourself—your efficiency, your grasp of new technologies, your ability to finish that latest project. As such, it’s also an investment in your company, and it’s an investment that pays for itself as you become more efficient and skilled, but you probably already knew that. The question is: Does your manager know that? If they don’t know, don’t worry. We’re here to help you come up with some compelling reasons. In fact, we’ve written an entire customizable letter that you can use. 

The letter highlights some key features of JavaOne. The technical nature of the conference sessions is stated clearly. You’re not coming out to San Francisco to listen to product advertisements; you’re coming to learn from some of the best minds in Java today. It also mentions the great collaborative opportunities that the conference offers. With so many developers under the same roof, some serious collaboration, present and future, is bound to happen. And on top of all that, right now you’ll save $400 off the conference price, so if you’re considering waiting to state your case, act quickly while we can still offer such savings.

Don't Miss Java University!

The tech world moves fast. Catch up. Blink. And it’s gone again. New tools and new methods are always coming out. From time to time, we all need a light refresher course or a breakneck sprint to catch back up. Luckily, Java University is here. Taking place on Sunday, September 18th, Java University is the perfect place to get the most Java knowledge out of your San Francisco trip.

Java University is a collection of full-day seminars designed and taught by experts. Each session runs from 8:30am-3:30pm with a lecture, demos, and whiteboarding on a specific Java topic. This extended session format allows students the time to really dig into the material, and instructor slides are available to students after the session, so the learning doesn’t stop there. Sessions this year are:

  • Lift and Shift: Moving Your Java Apps to and from Oracle Cloud
  • Using the Power of Java 8 Lambda Expressions and Streams
  • Recommended Practices for Java Performance Tuning
  • Architect and Design Secure Robust Enterprise Java Applications for the Cloud and Beyond
  • Validating X.509 Certificates in SSL/TLS
  • The Latest and the Greatest of RESTful Web Services
  • AngularJS Programming for Java Developers
These sessions will add that new skill to your toolbox or help you explore an area of interest. Whatever your motivation, be sure to check out the full session descriptions here. Registration is as easy as adding Java University as an add-on when you register for JavaOne or logging in and adding Java University to your current registration. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn in-demand skills at an accelerated pace!
