Congrats to the 2013 JavaOne Rock Stars!

By guest blogger: JavaOne Content Chair Stephen Chin

Each year at JavaOne we recognize the best speakers of the conference as voted on by attendees through the surveys.  This year the overall reviews given by attendees were higher on average, so I guess we did something right with the content…  :)  However, it also means the criteria for getting awarded a JavaOne Rock Star was even more difficult.

Here are all the folks who made the cut, and were the best-of-the-best at the JavaOne 2013 event.  Give them a virtual round of applause (I linked to their twitter handles to make this even easier to do):


To see all the JavaOne Rock Stars past and present, visit the JavaOne Rock Star Wall of Fame page.

And a new year begins…  we are just starting planning for JavaOne 2014, so I hope you are looking forward to the new content!

JavaOne 2013 Sessions Online

JavaOne sessions are now online for you to view. We captured the audio and synched it with the presentations so you can experience the sessions even if you didn't attend JavaOne. The first 60 sessions are now available. We'll be rolling out new sessions every couple of weeks, so check back often for the latest content. It's all free, brought to you by the Oracle. Check them out!

Oracle’s Java Community Outreach Plan

As the steward of Java, Oracle recognizes the importance and value of the Java community, and the relevant role it plays in keeping Java the largest, most vibrant developer community in the world.  

In order to increase Oracle’s touch with Java developers worldwide, we are shifting our focus from a flagship JavaOne event followed by several regional JavaOne conferences, to a new outreach model which continues with the JavaOne flagship event, as well as a mix of online content, regional Java Tours, and regional 3rd party event participation. 

1. JavaOne

  • JavaOne continues to remain the premier hub for Java developers where you are given the opportunity to improve your Java technical skills, and interact with other members of the Java community. JavaOne is centered on open collaboration and sharing, and Oracle will continue to invest in JavaOne as a unique stand-alone event for the Java community.
  • Oracle recognizes that many developers cannot attend JavaOne in person, therefore Oracle will share the wealth of the unique event material to those developers through a new and easy-to-access online Java program. While online JavaOne content cannot address the importance of actual face-to-face community/developer engagements and networking, online content does aide in extending the Java technical learning opportunity to a broader collection of developers.
2. Java Developer Day Tours
  • Oracle will execute regional Java Developer Days with recognized Java User Groups (JUGs) with participation from Java Evangelist and Java Champions. This allows local, regional specific Java topics to be addressed both by Oracle and the Java community.
  • In addition, Oracle will deliver more virtual technical content programs to reach developers where an existing JUG may not have a presence.
3. Sponsorship of Community-Driven Regional Events/Conferences
  • Oracle also recognizes that improved community dialog and relations are achievable by continued Oracle sponsorship and onsite participation at both established/well-recognized 3rd party events and new emerging/growing 3rd party events.

Oracle’s ultimate goal is to be an even better steward for Java by reaching more of the Java ecosystem with face-to-face and online community engagements. We look forward to planning tours and events with you, members of the Java community.

Get Ready for JavaOne

Make sure you pack for JavaOne and San Francisco. On our short list is: 
  • A jacket! It can be chilly and maybe even rain.
  • Your Oracle login. Be sure to bring your oracle.com account login information when you walk through the doors of Moscone South, Moscone West, or the Hilton San Francisco Union Square. You’ll need the user name and password you created for your JavaOne 2013 registration to check in and receive your badge, as well as to gain access to My Account and Schedule Builder at the event.
  • Consider downloading a ride-sharing service app. SideCar, Lyft, and Uber are popular alternative to yellow taxis. These are unregulated ride-sharing services, so ride at your own risk.
In your schedule, be sure to add keynotes, hangout places, social events and more:  
  • Keynotes are on Sunday from 12:00pm to 3:00pm at Moscone North, Hall D 
  • Fun networking events: Taylor Street Café Open House, The Oracle Appreciation Event, It’s a Wrap!
  • On your break, hang out at the Buzz House at Taylor Street Café, and relax at Game Zone in Parc 55. Check out the list of activities at the Zone. 
  • In the exhibit hall, the Java DEMOgrounds, OTN lounge, exhibitor stands will be open from 9:30am to 5:00pm. New this year at the OTN lounge is the JavaOne Codegarten where you can contribute to open source projects. 

Don't miss DJ Tall Sasha at the Open House at Taylor Street Café, Sunday at 7pm!
