JavaOne 2010: A Return to Purity

The JavaOne 2010 call for papers is now open.

As we promised, this year, the conference is going back to its roots: 100% focus on Java technology and its related ecosystem and community - no distractions.

This principle is reflected in the tracks, I think:

Core Java Platform
Java SE and Desktop Java
Java EE and Java for Enterprise Applications
JavaFX and Rich User Experience
Java ME and Mobile
Java for Devices, Card, and TV
The Java Frontier

Sometimes, simpler is better.

Now, if you are interested in the product side of things, you can always drop in on the co-located Develop conference, which your JavaOne pass will get you into.

Needless to say, Oracle Technology Network will also be present in a *big* way. (Yes, we are re-locating from our traditional Moscone location. We want to be with our peeps.)


I don't expect this to be posted, however if Oracle is genuine about Java, why has it fired two of Java's most influential developers, just because they were in the wrong project at the wrong time? See for yourself, check out who Oracle has fired in Project Darkstar. I suggest you grep their names in the JRE source code. Looks to me like Oracle will retain control of the Java trademark, but loose the hearts and minds of developers like myself.

First of all, why wouldn't you? I take it this question is rhetorical, but even if it weren't, I have no answer for you - because I have no first-hand knowledge of the circumstances.

I'm excited to see this year's JavaOne tracks. I just hope James Gosling is still allowed to present his toy show. I always found that to be the most inspiring and motivating part of the whole conference. BTW, if the 19-23 September dates are correct, why is the Oracle starting the conference on a Sunday? Just curious.

Sunday is traditionally "User Group Day" or "Partner Day" at OpenWorld. As for the Toy Show - anything is possible at this point. :)
