A great CommunityOne/JavaOne

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.

JavaOne 2009 - 4 days away!

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!

CommunityOne

I attended my first CommunityOne today. I had attended parts of JavaOne last year but hadn't taken part in NetBeans day.

We got to hear from Tim O'Reilly along with Rich Green, Ian Murduck, and Tim Bray for the general session. The most interesting piece to me was the mobility session and seeing a demo of Sun Spot and Mobile Complete. The latter provides for time-shared access to most if not all mobile phones to be able to test ones apps on a variety of devices. Quite interesting.

Tomorrow is the kickoff of JavaOne so we'll see what transpires from that!
