Why Join the JavaOne GlassFish Community Events?

Guest Author

If you are active in the GlassFish community, you probably already know about the GlassFish community events that take place on the Sunday that kicks off JavaOne San Francisco. The event has long been the rallying point for the GlassFish community at JavaOne.

This year, the events are taking place from 10:00 AM to 11:45 AM. Our agenda is grouped into two separate sessions with a brief break in the middle:

To add to these sessions to your schedule, follow the session links above to the JavaOne Content Catalog and use the Schedule Builder widget on the top right hand side.

If you are a GlassFish user or even just a friend, this is the most important JavaOne event that you really should not miss, and for good reasons:

  • Learn the insider's view of Java EE 7, Java EE 8, GlassFish 4.1, GlassFish 5, community, success, metrics and roadmap for the future from none other than GlassFish product manager John Clingan himself.
  • Get a chance to listen to and interact directly with the Oracle Executives responsible for Java EE and GlassFish during the GlassFish Executive Panel.
  • Hear success stories from real world Java EE/GlassFish users and get to ask them your questions. This year Mohammed Taman will be sharing the story of the first known real world deployment of Java EE 7 on GlassFish 4. Mohammed will tell us about a highly innovative and important project he helped develop for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and the World Food Program (WFP). The project won the Duke's Choice Award for 2014.
  • Learn about the coolest features included in GlassFish from the GlassFish engineers themselves. This year key GlassFish engineer Martin Mares will be sharing the details on the GlassFish extensible command line framework.
  • Meet key members of the Oracle GlassFish team and community including Advocates, Architects, Java EE spec leads, and Product Managers.
  • Attending the event is one of the strongest ways you can show your support for GlassFish and Java EE under Oracle, get your voice heard and help shape the future.

Note that this is a JavaOne Sunday User Group session, so you will need a JavaOne pass to get in. Like all JavaOne events, there is a limited amount of registrants allowed for the session, so if you think this is something that is worth your while, you would be wise to pre-register via the JavaOne Schedule Builder as soon as possible.

Do check out the details for the event on the GlassFish.org JavaOne Sunday Community Events Page, including the agenda, timings, panel question ideas, participant bios and story outlines. There's also the details on how to join the evening after-party.

You should also consider attending the GlassFish Birds-of-a-Feather session and a Birds-of-a-Feather session I am holding with the London GlassFish User Group on contributing to GlassFish - especially if you cannot make it on Sunday.
