Java continues to drive applications and devices that enrich our lives. Oracle’s Java engineering experts will discuss many of the vast opportunities that Java provides, along with Oracle’s continued commitment to and investment in Java technology. The Oracle speakers at the Strategy Keynote are:
John Duimovich, Java CTO and IBM Distinguished Engineer at IBM will be presenting the keynote titled “Java Flies in Blue Skies and Open Clouds.” Open cloud stacks, emerging PaaS environments, and cloud ecosystems are among the Java innovations IBM’s John Duimovich and a special guest will discuss.
Senior Vice President and General Manager, Microcontrollers, Freescale Semiconductor will present the keynote titled “How Java Will Unify the Internet of Things.” The Internet of Things relies on microcontrollers, communications topologies, and sensors and actuators to enable data-driven automation. Learn why Java technology is the glue needed to connect all of these devices and topologies for service providers.

As I write this, JavaOne 2012 (September 30-October 4 in San Francisco, CA) is just over a week away -- the seventeenth JavaOne! I’ll resist the impulse to travel in memory back to the early days of JavaOne. But I will say that JavaOne is a little like your birthday or New Year’s in that it invites reflection, evaluation, and comparison. It’s a time when we take the temperature of Java and assess the world of information technology generally. At JavaOne, insight and information flow amongst Java developers like no other time of the year.
This year, the status of Java seems more secure in the eyes of most Java developers who agree that Oracle is doing an acceptable job of stewarding the platform, and while the story is still in progress, few doubt that Oracle is engaging strongly with the Java community and wants to see Java thrive.
From my perspective, the biggest news about Java is the growth of some 250 alternative languages for the JVM – from Groovy to Jython to JRuby to Scala to Clojure and on and on – offering both new opportunities and challenges. The JVM has proven itself to be unusually flexible, resulting in an embarrassment of riches in which, more and more, developers are challenged to find ways to optimally mix together several different languages on projects.
To the matter at hand -- I can say with confidence that Oracle is working hard to make each JavaOne better than the last – more interesting, more stimulating, more networking, and more fun! A great deal of thought and attention is being devoted to the task. To free up time for the 475 technical sessions/Birds of feather/Hands-on-Labs slots, the Java Strategy, Partner, and Technical keynotes will be held on Sunday September 30, beginning at 4:00 p.m.
Let’s not forget Java Embedded@JavaOne which is being held Wednesday, Oct. 3rd and Thursday, Oct. 4th at the Hotel Nikko. It will provide business decision makers, technical leaders, and ecosystem partners important information about Java Embedded technologies and new business opportunities.
This year's JavaOne theme is “Make the Future Java”. So come to JavaOne and make your future better by:
--Choosing from 475 sessions given by the experts to improve your working knowledge and coding expertise
--Networking with fellow developers in both casual and formal settings
--Enjoying world-class entertainment
--Delighting in one of the world’s great cities (my home town)
Hope to see you there!
