The JavaOne Content Catalog is live and full of hundreds of great sessions, which, admittedly, can seem a bit overwhelming. With so many sessions, where to start looking? How to really know what JavaOne has to offer? Well, the best place to start is with an understanding of the tracks being offered at this year’s conference. Each one tackles a different side of the Java technologies, and this is the first post in a series explaining the different tracks featured at this year’s JavaOne conference and what they have to offer. Today, let’s look at the Core Java Platform track and a few featured sessions.
The Core Java Platform track includes material that is fundamental to Java technologies. It covers information like new developments in the Java programming language, the Java Virtual Machine (JVM), and Java library features. For example, JavaOne Rock Star Paul Sandoz is giving a session on “Effective Java Streams.” His session will take a look at Java SE Stream API, effective parallel execution, and moving forward to SE 9 and beyond. Hear tips and tricks that will change the way you use Java.
Also offered is “Java SE 8: Keeping Pace with the Technology” by Sheryl Domingue. This is a Birds-of-a-Feather session, meaning that the session will be more discussion based and will take a broader look at SE 8 and the new tools it has to offer. This is a great chance to keep pace with the ever growing Java technology. You can view information about all the sessions in this track by going to the content catalog and selecting the Core Java Platform as a track filter.
