Video Series: Overreacting to Oracle Acquisition
It seems our over-dressed friends are at it again. Oracle's recent acquisition of Sun has lead to a few misunderstandings about community support and product longevity—and even conference confusion. But everything can be clarified with a little explanation and a lot of costuming.
Check out the new Overreacting to Oracle Acquisition playlist on the Oracle WebVideo YouTube channel. If you were one of those with apprehension about how Sun community members would be affected, these short—and hopefully humorous—clips should shed a light on any area where you might be concerned. For Oracle OpenWorld Blog readers, one of the most important items to note about the Sun transition is what's going to happen to JavaOne.
JavaOne is going to be co-located with Oracle Develop during this year's Oracle OpenWorld and will focus solely on Java Technology and its associated ecosystem. In addition, JavaOne and Oracle Develop will be hitting the road, heading to Brazil, Russia, India, and China in the months ahead.
