Nighthacking moves in! Join Stephen Chin as he interviews Java developers attending JavaOne. You will learn from fellow developers about ingenious ways to get your job done with the tools and technologies they use. Those interviews will be live at Java Hub during the whole conference and live streamed online.
The Hackergarten is where developers contribute to JSRs and open source projects. Whether you are a veteran contributor or a beginner, you are invited to participate for as long as you want. You can stay for less than an hour, several hours, a day, or the entire time of the conference. JSR contributors will be onsite to help. Topics include Java EE, Data Grids, Java SE 8 (Lambdas and Date & Time API) and OpenJDK. Java Champion Andres Almiray organizes Hackergarten at many conferences around the world.
