Failed demos at JavaOne

I decided to collect and list all the demos that failed during JavaOne in this post. Because I'm not able to visit all the general sessions I'd be very glad to get some tips from my readers.

It quite usual that the demo fails just and only during the presentation. I call it demo effect. You can test/dry-run how many times you want but it will happen anyway :) I'm QA guy therefore I know that there isn't anything like bugless software. However I don't get it why all the bugs appear at presentation time.

Failed demos list
  • Kindle doesn't download - however it works when you are not on the stage. For Ian it works even from a seat in first row.
  • Java FX Connected Life - failed 3 times. Poor Nandini, she did it again ;)
Comments:

Well, in the Maven2 BOF on Tuesday night the guy couldn't finish his "How to migrate Guice to Maven2"-Demo.
Poor guy, to nervous and to many editors, but anyway, nice session!

Failing demos are part of the show! I have tried to bless my mobile and laptop, but that it still happening with me... at CommunityOne I showed this demo (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e5qh5ESOjkA) quickly and weirdly appeared a square in the middle of the game screen. At that time, I said it was a Easter Egg, but I still do not know what happened! ehhehe
Cheers!
