Just in time before the conference starts, here's a short GlassFish Podcast episode discussing the GlassFish and Java EE content at this year's JavaOne 2011 conference.

JavaOne 2011, an update

Reading Markus' blog post this morning, I realized that the JavaOne 2011 website had been finally updated, both its content and look and feel. As a reminder the conference will take place once again in San Francisco from October 2nd-6th, 2011 with a GlassFish Community Session on the first day of the conference (Sunday).


While the list of sessions is being finalized (notifications to speakers should be going out any day now), you can check out the overall event schedule and the updated page with this year's Program Review Committee.

Other new content include a letter to management to make your case for attending the event, the Appreciation Event page and of course the registration page with package details.

Adam Messinger was quoted during yesterday's Java 7 launch event saying that we're ahead this year in terms of registration, so don't wait, register! Early bird pricing ends July 29, 2011.

JavaOne 2011 - San Francisco October 2-6, 2011

After considering other times of the year and several other cities, the date and venue are now locked : October 2-6, 2011 in downtown San Francisco. This is the same week as the larger Oracle Open World conference but JavaOne will run as a separate conference.


Some changes over last year include no more wandering between hotels and Moscone, more room for JavaOne sessions with Oracle Develop being moved to another venue, more community involvement in the event planning, more space and time for "hallway conversations", and more sessions overal.

The call for papers opens this week on April 27th and closes less than a month later on May 23rd. Selected speakers are notified by the end of June with the detailed agenda published soon after. Here are the JavaOne 2011 main resources: Registration and conference page, Blog, Twitter.

In October, if all goes well, JDK 7 will have GA'd and GlassFish 3.2 will be well on its way.
