JavaOne 2012 Conference Preview

A new article, by noted freelancer Steve Meloan, now up on otn/java, titled “JavaOne 2012 Conference Preview,” looks ahead to the fast approaching JavaOne 2012 Conference, scheduled for September 30-October 4 in San Francisco. The Conference will celebrate and highlight one of the world’s leading technologies. As Meloan states, “With 9 million Java developers worldwide, 5 billion Java cards in use, 3 billion mobile phones running Java, 1 billion Java downloads each year, and 100 percent of Blu-ray disk players and 97 percent of enterprise desktops running Java, Java is a technology that literally permeates our world.”

The 2012 JavaOne is organized under seven technical tracks:

* Core Java Platform
* Development Tools and Techniques
* Emerging Languages on the JVM
* Enterprise Service Architectures and the Cloud
* Java EE Web Profile and Platform Technologies
* Java ME, Java Card, Embedded, and Devices
* JavaFX and Rich User Experiences

Conference keynotes will lay out the Java roadmap. For the Sunday keynote, such Oracle luminaries as Cameron Purdy, Vice President of Development; Nandini Ramani, Vice President of Engineering, Java Client and Mobile Platforms; Richard Bair, Chief Architect, Client Java Platform; and Mark Reinhold, Chief Architect, Java Platform will be presenting.

For the Thursday IBM keynote, Jason McGee, Distinguished Engineer and Chief Architect for IBM PureApplication System, and John Duimovich, Java CTO and IBM Distinguished Engineer, will explore Java and IBM's cloud-based initiatives.
All in all, the JavaOne 2012 Conference should be as exciting as ever.

Tips for JavaOne 2011 Session Submissions

Thinking about submitting a session for JavaOne 2011? That's great! Here are some tips that will help your JavaOne submission stand out:

  • Write an abstract that is easy to read and describes the value of the presentation. Do explicitly mention what is being discussed during the session rather than making a blank marketing or strategy pitch. For example, include mention of demonstration, case study, customer/partner participation, quantitative facts, etc.
  • Submissions should be:
    • Java-related topics (not technologies such as Flex, .NET, Objective C, etc... unless it's specifically a topic about how such things INTEGRATE with Java)
    • Non-product pitches (JavaOne is a technology conference!)
    •  Interesting/innovative uses of Java (be creative!)
    • Practical relevant case studies/examples/practices/etc. (showcase your skills!)
    • Presentations should offer a unique solution 
The last tip is a great reminder: it's not the Java technology itself that matters, but how Java solves a problem. That should be your focus. Learn more tips by visiting the JavaOne Call For Papers website, it has a whole page of Tips and Guidelines. While these are all good tips to make your submission stand out, the most important tip we can give is make sure to get your submissions in on time. The JavaOne 2011 Call for Papers closes on May 23 Thursday, May 26 11:59 p.m. PDT.!
