Simon Ritter, an Oracle Java Technology Evangelist who is renowned for his entertaining and informative JavaOne sessions, has been in the IT business since 1984 and holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Physics from Brunel University in the U.K.
Originally working in the area of UNIX development for AT&T UNIX System Labs and then Novell, Simon moved to Sun Microsystems in 1996 where he started working with Java technology both in technology development and consultancy. At Oracle, he now focuses on the core Java platform and Java for client applications. He also continues to develop demonstrations that push the boundaries of Java for applications like gestural interfaces.

If you are active in the GlassFish community, you probably already know about the GlassFish community events that take place on the Sunday that kicks off JavaOne San Francisco. The event has long been the rallying point for the GlassFish community at JavaOne.
This year, the events are taking place from 10:00 AM to 11:45 AM. Our agenda is grouped into two separate sessions with a brief break in the middle:Read More]

It's with great pleasure that I announce JavaOne will host a Hackergarten this year once more. That's right, you did read it well, the name sticks, we're no longer renaming it to CodeGarten like last time ;-)
At JavaOne 2014, the Hackergarten has a dedicated space at the Java Hub in JavaOne exhibit hall, Hilton Union Square. The space has power, a private Internet network, white boards, and seating for 16. Attendees need to bring their laptops. You may stay as long as they want, from less than an hour to most of the three days. The format remains the same as other Hackergartens. Participants will contribute to open source projects.
The idea is to gather people around specific topics at the scheduled times. Topics range from Java SE, Java EE, JSRs, pretty much anything Java-related. Contributions can be production code, test cases, documentation, or simply a friendly chat in order to gather feedback. If you want to host a session (help people to work on an open source project), please contact me. The project page is here and will be updated as we fill out the schedule.
We are also running Hackergartens at other conferences. The following ones are already confirmed:
JCrete - Aug 25th (in English)
JavaZone - Sep 9th (in Norsk & English)
JMaghreb - Nov 6th (in French)
Learn more about Hackergartens at Hackergarten.net.

Attend the premier Java conference to learn about Java technologies and network with professionals.
To be eligible, you must be taking a minimum of 6 units from a nonprofit institution of learning during the Fall 2014.
You'll have access to JavaOne and OpenWorld keynotes and Exhibition Halls. And, space permitting, you can attend all JavaOne sessions including HOLs (Hands-On Labs), conference sessions and BOF (Birds-of-a-Feather). This year, a lot of sessions are about parallel programming with Java 8, JVM languages, cloud and Internet of Things.

For the Java EE track at JavaOne 2014 we are highlighting some key sessions and speakers to better inform you of what you can expect, right up until the start of the conference.
To this end we recently interviewed Ed Burns. Ed is a veteran of Sun and now Oracle. He has been and is instrumental in pushing the JSF ecosystem forward as specification lead. Besides his specification lead work Ed is well regarded as an author and speaker on his own right. In addition to carrying the JSF torch Ed will be co-leading the key Servlet 4 specification for Java EE 8, along with Servlet specification guru Shing Wai Chan. The primary goal of Servlet 4 is to enable the fundamentally important changes in HTTP 2 for the entire server-side Java ecosystem. We wanted to talk to Ed about his Servlet 4 session at JavaOne 2014 and HTTP 2 generally:
The details for the Servlet 4 sessions can be found here. Ed has several other key sessions on the track that we hope to talk to him about separately in the near future:
- What’s Next for JSF?: In this key session, Ed will be sharing the next steps for the continued evolution of the JSF specification in Java EE 8.
- Adopt-a-JSR for Java EE 7 and Java EE 8: Adopt-a-JSR has been a reasonable success for Java EE 7. With Java EE 8 we are planning to strengthen it far more as away of getting grassroots level participation in the specification efforts. This session will introduce Adopt-a-JSR, share how it worked for Java EE 7 and what we plan to do with it in Java EE 8. Ed will be sharing his perspectives on Adopt-a-JSR for both Java EE 7 and Java EE 8.
- Java EE 7 from an HTML 5 Perspective: HTML5, WebSocket, JSON, and JSF Java University Session: JSF 2.2 is the latest evolution in the standard UI framework for JavaEE. This full day session covers what's new in JSF 2.2 and also covers new features in JavaEE 7 that are particularly interesting to JSF users. A VM will be provided that has all the course materials and examples.
Besides Ed's sessions, we have a very strong program for the Java EE track and JavaOne overall - just explore the content catalog. If you can't make it, you can be assured that we will make key content available after the conference just as we have always done.
