JavaOne Acceptances on Twitter and History on Google

The acceptances for presentations at JavaOne have started to arrive, and the agenda for the conference can almost be constructed just from searching on twitter for #javaone... and it seems a good set of sessions.

Google's new search tool for tweeter history clearly shows the spike the acceptance-driven spike.

This will be the first conference under Oracle. It will feel different than in past years because most of it will not be at the Moscone, but it is an opportunity to give it its own feeling. I like that Mason St. between O'Farrell and Ellis will be a Big Tent; and Oracle certainly knows how to throw a good party. Still quite a bit of time until the event; we will see how it all unfolds.

BTW, while looking for the JavaOne tweeter stream I noticed that Google also has new tool to provide a chronological view of pages found searching for JavaOne, with a histogram and a chronological listing.  Unfortunately, some of the early pages are not available, but still entertaining: check it out.

JavaOne 2010 Call For Papers is Now Open


This year's JavaOne will be Sep 19-23 in San Francisco. The new time is to align with Oracle OpenWorld, which will be held, as previous years, at the Moscone Center and surrounding locations.

Call for Papers is now open and the deadline is Mar 14. Details of the event are still unfolding but, since OpenWorld will take most of the Moscone site, JavaOne will feel different than in previous years. Hopefully you can help us make the "new" JavaOne a special event in its own way while taking some advantage of the extra resources that Oracle brings in.

Registration for C1 Unconferences Now Open - GlassFish and OpenSSO Day


The registration for our CommunityOne Unconferences is now open. We are hosting two intertwined events, one for all the GlassFish projects, the other for OpenSSO, OpenDS et al. Both in Hall A at the Moscone (Wikipedia, GeoHack) the Sunday before JavaOne, May 31st.

Both events are free, and you can switch back and forth as your interests apply. Check the GlassFish Unconference page and the OpenSSO Day MeetUp and Topics page.

The unconferences will be followed with a Party at the Thirsty Bear. We have plenty of space at the Moscone but the TB space is limited, so I encourage you to sign up early.
