The Java Hub at JavaOne!

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. Check the hackergarten.net for events close to you!

What's that Java and the Internet of Things? Check out what's new with the platform and how it provides a great solution for the Internet of Things. Whether you are working in the industry or just want to do your own DIY projects. Stop by Java IoT Demo Showcase and learn what you can do with Java. The cool keynote demo will be there as well for all 3 days of the conference.

Learn how to use 3D Modeling with JavaFX 3D, Java Embedded, and 3D printing. You will experience the entire process from the modeling interface to the 3D printing of no less than the Duke. Computer scientist Michael Hoffer from the Goethe-Center in Germany will demo his 3D modeling software.

The scavenger hunt at the Java Hub will add a twist of fun to the discovery of Java technologies. The Java Hub will be located in the JavaOne Exhibit Hall at Hilton San Francisco Union Square.

Thanks to the Java Product team and Oracle Technology Network for bringing this new experience to JavaOne attendees.

Winning Project Bot-So

“Bot-So is not just a robot; we tried to personify it by making it present in social media." explains Debraj Dutta, director, EdifixioIndia. Bot-So, a smart social robot that interacts with you via Twitter won the IoT Developer Challenge last month.

Created by Debraj Dutta, Tapas Bose, and Avinaba Majumder from Edifixio India, the robot can be deployed for remote home surveillance by sending a tweet. It surveys your interior space when the motion detector is triggered.

"And what could be a better platform than the Oracle Internet of Things Developer Challenge to showcase Bot-So to the world. We are really excited about this project and believe it will have a lot of good use in society. We are thrilled that we have won this award and we look forward to doing a lot more things to take Bot-So further and be a key contributor to the Internet of Things revolution” adds Debraj Dutta.

Meet the team at JavaOne 2014, from September 28 to October 2, 2014.

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!

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.
