JavaOne 2009 - 4 days away!
By kevinschmidt on May 29, 2009
It should come as no surprise that JavaOne 2009 is approaching, and not only approaching but right around the corner next week! This year I'm more involved than ever in our Software Infrastructure group's planning for it, so I thought I'd share a bit to pique folks interest.
The activities officially get started with the third annual CommunityOne West on Monday June 1st. Why "West" you might ask? That's because there was a CommunityOne East this year in New York where Sun made announcements about its Cloud and more. Basic access to CommunityOne is free (you can't beat that!) with access to "Deep Dives" or a package including JavaOne access available. And Pavilion passes for JavaOne are also free this year plus early bird registration has been extended through the start of the show.
JavaOne itself gets started Tuesday June 2nd with the Sun General Session. This should be a jam packed session with great stuff from Jonathan and perhaps some surprises. The other keynotes from Sun and the other sponsors are always fantastic as well but I have a special interest in Bob Brewin's technical keynote on Tuesday afternoon as I'm working with him and the technical experts on it.
There are a host of technical sessions, BOFs, and Sun along with all of the co-sponsors and exhibitors will be in the pavilion. And the pavilion actually opens early this year, during CommunityOne so you'll have more time to explore. A full searchable content calendar is available here, but I've also created my own agenda of key/interesting sessions on Google calendar. Now, there is a bit of a slant towards server side technologies and architectures like SOA, REST, Identity Services, GlassFish, etc., but you may still find it interesting and/or useful.
See you there!
