J1 is awesome!

There is no word to describe what is JavaOne. If I take a try, I would say that is definitely awesome! It rocks! It is the best geek tourism ever!!!

The sessions are great, the speakers are great, the Pavillion is great, the communities, companies, people, all the information, flyers, talks, contests, chats, demos, videos, places, souvenirs, stuff, food, parties, pubs, dinners... the coolest people from the whole world speaking about Java and whatever runs in a JVM!

I will not describe all the sessions and things I have seen, because I could easily write a few of books about it. I suppose everyone have seen different JavaOnes, due to the many information in its atmosphere and because we cannot split ourselves in time... So, I have added some pics that show much more. Follow them to see what happened with me, probably not in this sequence, but I can't remember, I spent a whole week as it was a day! Too much fun!

And the fun was just starting...

...do you know that people are the center of everything that happens?

...I mean, because of a lot of people, all those things happens...

...yes, a lot of... and in everywhere, the Pavillion was awesome to meet them...

...and those people play video games when they are tired... or sometimes just rest...

...you can meet those people in a Smash Mouth concert... who does not like rock?


...I met Aaron Houston there... is he Brazilian?!

...he took me to a cool JavaPosse session... very informal and funny, as you can see...

...then I got my car and it drove me ti the next pub...

...yeah... definitely everybody likes rock!

...a lot of Mobile and Embedded people were there!

...Have you seen all the cool demos we got?


...after some pints, I think I was in Mars...

...and then I encourage myself and got a Marge Duke tattoo...

...I can't remember the rest, but I wake up with Neil Young in the stage... wow...

...then I just discovered that Jonh Cage is Brazilian too... he said don't be shy!

...yes... I tried...

...so, James Gosling just appeared in the CommunityCorner...

...and all his fans liked that!!!


...too much things going on... time to rest, let's watch a movie...


...everybody would be tired after a day like that, don't you think, Roger?

As 24Hrs (do you know Jack Bauer?) episode would say, the following take place between 5th of May and 9th of May... something like that, I cannot remember the hours exactly...

Great to meet everybody and be part of this! It was my pleasure! I got addicted to JavaOne!!!

What a busy day!

Thanks,
Bruno Ghisi
