The JavaOne team just announced the Rock Star speakers for JavaOne 2014. Not very surprisingly Java EE had a strong showing. That's very significant as the Rock Stars are based on attendee ratings. I am extremely humbled to join the very fortunate ranks this year. Having an insider view of JavaOne, I know exactly how selective JavaOne really is (it is by far the most selective Java conference in the world). For that reason to me every speaker at JavaOne is a star on their own right. The Rock Star awards are just an attempt to recognize the talent and hard work of some of these people using some set of objective criteria.
Here are the Java EE Rock Star speakers and their highly rated talks (linked are the videos):
- Adam Bien - Enterprise Nashorn, Unorthodox Enterprise Practices.
- Arun Gupta - Java EE 7 Soup to Nuts.
- Brian Oliver, Greg Luck - Using the New JCache.
- Linda DeMichiel - Java EE 8.
You can find the full list of Rock Star speakers and their talks here. Who knows, maybe you join these ranks next year?
