Students: Want to see the future of Java? Want to network with the geekiest of the geeks? JavaOne and Oracle Develop are offering Discover Passes FREE to ' qualifying students. You must be enrolled in an accredited nonprofit institutions of learning during the Fall semester/quarter of 2010, taking a minimum of six (6) units, and you must be at least 18 years old.

What Students Get: Admission to any session in the Java Frontier track for students (schedule below), JavaOne, Oracle Develop and OpenWorld keynotes, three Exhibition Halls and the Mason street tent (more info below). Space permitting, you can also attend any JavaOne and Oracle Develop technical sessions, Birds-of-a-Feather sessions (BOFs), and Hands-on-Lab (HOL) sessions.

On top of the benefits that the free Discover Pass to qualifying students offers we have organized a special Java Frontier track for students.  These sessions are designed for those with some or no programming experience. Students with no programming experience will discover tools and projects related to programming. Students with programming experience will learn tricks and tips for programming complex logic and deepen their knowledge of projects like Open Source.

We invited outstanding and diverse speakers; professors from renowned universities like Carnegie Mellon and Kent, a student sharing first hand experience about an internship, and the president of Systronix Inc., an embedded Java robotic company.  Session titles and speakers are listed below, check the Content Catalog for locations and times.

Kent University developed the Greenfoot project, a programming environment for students to use drag and drop programming elements and code with Java. The Oracle Academy will present free Oracle learning resources to learn Java and get certified. View the Academic Booth schedule. It is not all about learning; it is also about fun: free t-shirts, networking, and evening events like the Java Posse on Tuesday. Register today!
