Gearing up for the Week Ahead
By Tori Wieldt-Oracle on Sep 19, 2010
The 2010 JavaOne Conference is just starting as I write, so bloggers are rapidly moving into juggling-6-balls-in-the-air mode.
This JavaOne, I plan to blog about various things - you never know what will pop up at JavaOne! - but right now I'm looking forward to these particular sessions/keynotes:
* The details of the Java SE 7 Platform announcement.
* Oracle Senior Technologist at Mobile and Embedded Terrence Barr's session, (S314178) "Beyond Smart-Phones: Rich Applications and Services for the Mobile Masses," wherein Barr argues that Java ME has all the tools to build rich and compelling "Smart Phone-like" applications.
* Monday Evening's Keynote Address by Oracle Executive Vice President Thomas Kurian on "Java Strategy and Direction" and Intel's Vice President and General Manager Doug Fisher on "Delivering High-Performance Java on Intel Architecture".
* Tuesday afternoon's Technical General Session, in which Greg Bollella gives us an update on Java and Embedded; Roberto Chinnici informs us about where Java EE is headed; and Mark Reinhold connects the dots about Java SE 7.
* Wednesday morning's Oracle Develop Keynote with Ted Farrell, Oracle's Chief Architect and Senior Vice President, Tools and Middleware on "Outperforming User Expectations in Rich Enterprise Applications" and Ryan Martens, Founder and Chief Technology Officer, Rally Software, on "The Linchpins for Scaling Software Agility".
* Thursday morning's Keynote with inventor Ray Kurzweil, plus the Java Frontier Keynotes by Richard Bair and Greg Bollella of Oracle.
So stay tuned and have fun!
