A great CommunityOne/JavaOne
By kevinschmidt on Jun 08, 2009
JavaOne (and CommunityOne) 2009 were last week and I spent the bulk of my week there at the event. All in all, especially given the state of the economy, I thought it was well attended and there was a host of great sessions and content.
It started off with CommunityOne on Monday with a keynote and announcements around the Sun Cloud and OpenSolaris. And while the keynote gave the day a cloud/OS feel, the rest of the day had many sessions on lots of topics including those near and dear to my heart, server side Java.
JavaOne itself kicked off Tuesday morning with the main Sun keynote with Jonathan showing some neat JavaFX stuff, announcing the Java Store, and bringing up executives from eBay, RIM, Sony, and more. There was also a cute video that had James' Gospel of Java. It finished with Scott reminiscing a bit and bringing Larry Ellison on stage for some Q&A. Bob Brewin's technical keynote also went well with demos on Fuji, Java EE 6, Java SE 7, Java FX, and the architecture of the Java Store.
It was then off to technical sessions and I was able to attend several on OpenSSO, Java EE 6, Fuji, CEP, Camel, and more. Look for presentations to be published soon. I also spent some time in the Pavilion and traffic there kept things nice and busy.
If you weren't there, sorry you missed it, but take a look at what is available on-line that I linked to above.
