Oracle At QCon SF 2012

Oracle Technology Network is a Platinum sponsor at QCon San Francisco.  (qconsf.com).  Don’t miss these great developer focused sessions:

Shay Shmeltzer
How we simplified Web, Mobile and Cloud development for our own developers? - the Oracle Story
Over the past several years, Oracle has beendeveloping a new set of enterprise applications in what is probably one of the
largest Java based development project in the world. How do you take 3000 developers and make them productive? How do you insure the delivery of cutting edge UIs for both Mobile and Web channels? How do you enable Cloud based
development and deployment?  Come and learn how we did it at Oracle, and see how the same technologies and methodologies can apply to your development efforts.

Dan Smith
Project Lambda in Java 8
Java SE 8 will include major enhancements to the Java Programming Language and its core libraries.  This suite of new features, known as Project Lambda in the OpenJDK community, includes lambda expressions, default methods, and parallel collections (and much more!).  The result will be a next-generation Java programming experience with more flexibility and better abstractions.   This talk will introduce the new Java features and offer a behind-the-scenes view of how they evolved and why they work the way that they do.

Arun Gupta
JSR 356: Building HTML5 WebSocket Applications in Java
The family of HTML5 technologies has pushed the pendulum away from rich client technologies and toward ever-more-capable Web clients running on today’s browsers. In particular, WebSocket brings new opportunities for efficient peer-to-peer communication, providing the basis for a new generation of interactive and “live” Web applications. This session examines the efforts under way to support WebSocket in the Java programming model, from its base-level integration in the Java Servlet and Java EE containers to a new, easy-to-use API and toolset that are destined to become part of the standard Java platform.

The full conference schedule is here: http://qconsf.com/sf2012/schedule/wednesday.jsp

But wait, there’s more!  At the Oracle booth, we’ll also be covering:

·         Oracle ADF Mobile
·         Oracle Developer Cloud Service
·         Oracle ADF Essentials
·         NetBeans Project Easel

Lastly we’ll share the results of a short cloud survey at QConSF ater this week.  If you attended this year's Oracle OpenWorld and JavaOne conferences, it would be hard not to notice that Oracle is clearly "all-in" when it comes to the Cloud.  With Cloud computing being such a hot topic on many OTN members' minds, we'd like to know what you're doing in the cloud and invite you to take this short cloud survey.
