JavaOne 2011 Content revealed & Duke Choice Awards Nominations!

The JavaOne 2011 event catalog is now available with keynotes, sessions, hands-on-labs, BOFs, panels and user-group meetings is now available. While the schedule is not quite ready yet, this should give you a detailed view at this year's content which we hope is rated as good as last year's. Markus, a JavaOne and Oracle OpenWorld "veteran", was quick to blog his thoughts on the content.


Also worth mentioning is the call for nominations for the Duke's Choice Awards. The "Java Source" blog has more details on the process to nominate the most innovative projects using the Java platform and what those can get in return. For a list of previous winners, check out the Duke's Choice Awards main page. Results will be announced at the JavaOne conference.

Duke Snorcles with GlassFish


JAG is Looking Forward and put together a visual of Duke snorkeling (or rather snorceling?) with Sparky.

Hopefully this Wednesday's Webcast will clear out more details beyond those from the October 27th's Overview (although the Change-in-Control is not likely until later, so it will be interesting to see how we can/cannot answer questions from the webcast).
