Oracle OpenWorld / JavaOne Where I'll Be

It's that time of the year again when San Francisco get flooded with Oracle and Java geeks for the annual OpenWorld and JavaOne conferences.

Here are some of the places where you'll be able to find me:

Sunday has a bunch of great ADF content in the ADF Enterprise Methodology Group track - I'm not sure if I'll make it there but I'm sure those who will will get some serious knowledge transfer.

I'm starting Monday at the Keynote for Developers (10:45 in Salon 8 at the Marriott) - that's a great place for ADF developers to start the official week with an overview of what's new and upcoming in the world of development with ADF. While I'm not presenting this session - Chris Tonas who leads the development tools org will -  a demo that I built will be shown. So I'll be sitting in the audience crossing my fingers praying for the demo gods (and the wifi connection to work).

My presentation part of the week starts on Monday at 12:15 at Moscone South room 306 where I'll be presenting "CON3004 - Understanding Oracle ADF and Its Role in Oracle Fusion . A basic introduction to ADF, it's architecture, development experience and how it integrates and works with the rest of the Fusion Middleware components. 

After the session between 2-4 I'll be at the JDeveloper demo booth in Moscone South to answer any questions people might have.

Then at 6:15 together with Grant we'll host BOF4492 - How to Get Started with Oracle ADF where we'll try and explain some of the learning paths and resources that are available for people who want to start learning ADF. This is a birds-of-a-feather so we'll also love to hear ideas from the audience about what paths they took and what things work or need improvment.

Tuesday is relatively a quite day for me with a shift at the Oracle ADF Essentials pod at JavaOne from 1:30-3:30. There are several very good ADF architecture and best practices sessions on that day - so I'll try and hit those.

Wednesday starts with another shift at the JDeveloper booth at JavaOne. Then at 4:30, instead of doing what all the ADF developers should do and heading over to the ADF meetup at the OTN Lounge, I'll be heading over to JavaOne for my CON3770 - Oracle JDeveloper and Oracle ADF: What’s New session. It's been a couple of years since the last time JDeveloper or ADF got any airtime at JavaOne - so it will be a great opportunity to show those in the Java community with open minds our approach to Java development. Now that ADF Essentials offers a free way to develop with ADF on GlassFish, I hope we'll be getting more people from the core Java camp interested in what we have to offer.

Thursday is another relaxed day for me - who knows maybe I'll even be able to catch a session or two on that day.

ADF and JDeveloper at OOW - The Summary

Oracle OpenWorld is now officially over and it is time to look back at it from the perspective of JDeveloper and ADF.

I believe we can say that this was quite a revolutionary year  from our perspective. There was a noticeable increase in the number of people that showed up to ADF related sessions. Something that you could see in both for beginner/overview level sessions as well as the deep technical sessions. Many of the ADF sessions crossed the 100 attendees line. For example the sessions that the ADF Enterprise Methodology Group held on Sunday and were all very well attended. This also meant that developers had a great opportunity to network with their peers and learn from the experience of others.We certainly met a lot of developers at the JDeveloper booth in the demoground that had a constant stream of people coming by.

It was also great to see the ADF based Fusion Applications finally rolling out and being demoed in the Moscone West Demoground.

Want to check out some of the great ADF content? Go to this page and search for "ADF" you'll be able to get the slides for many of the sessions. The one thing you will miss are the demos. And from what I saw, almost every ADF session contained live demos

An interesting data point that Wilfred pointed out was that ADF was the most frequently word mention on Twitter in relation to OOW.

In summary - I do believe that this year proved that Oracle OpenWorld is the must attend conference for any ADF developer. The date for the next OpenWorld is already set - so it is time to start working with your boss to make sure you won't miss it.

Can't wait for the next OOW? then plan on attending ODTUG KScope 12 - June in San Antonio. Their call for papers is still open this week - so you might be able to get in on a speaker pass :-)
