We are all used to sharing our status, our ideas and pictures in a social way in our personal lives, but it seems strange to give that up when we come to work. It’s clear that social functionality is is starting to enter the enterprise, from consumer-facing experiences to employee collaboration, but where does an enterprise developer start? At JavaOne, you'll have opportunity to learn about social functionality in enterprise applications in a special new multi-presentation session, Getting Started with Social Development Inside the Enterprise. You’ll learn what’s possible today with Java and social, and you'll be welcomed into Oracle Social Developer Community (OSDC). By the end of this session you’ll know:
Is Java an appropriate social development environment?
What other options are available?
What kind of application integrations are being done today?
Where can I connect with other enterprise social developers?
Where can I get help starting my first project?
This program will include a range of speakers from the social developer community:
Carmen Delassio – CTO, Layercake James Pearce – Facebook Developer Liason, Facebook Peter Stern - CEO, Bit.ly Frederic Daurelle – Oracle Social Network, Oracle Adam Trachtenberg - Director of Developer Network, LinkedIn Roland Smart – VP of Social Marketing, Oracle
The session will end with a hands-on hackathon to get you started.
In addition to Social Developer session at JavaOne, Oracle is starting the Oracle Social Developer Lab that will create tools and solutions that reduce barriers to getting started with social development. This group will start taking requests from the community during JavaOne and will let the community prioritize the projects that it takes on through a social application. Roland Smart, Vice President of Social Marketing at Oracle, explains "The development community will play a critical role in driving the transformation to a socially-enabled enterprise. Oracle is committed to supporting --and engaging with--the social developer community. Please join us!"
