Looking Forward to JavaOne Sunday: JUG Forums, NetBeans Day, GlassFish, Technical Keynotes, Duke's Choice Awards

It used to be that Sunday was a fairly relaxing day for most. Not anymore! This year, Sunday is already overcrowded with many more events and sessions than one can possibly attend, as the JavaOne 2013 Content Catalog Sunday entries demonstrate.

Sunday's activity can be divided into five categories:

  • Java User Group Forums, a set of technical sessions covering the Java platform, organizing and growing user groups, and interaction with and participation in the JCP;
  • NetBeans Community Day, which starts out with a celebration of NetBeans's 15th anniversary, before moving on to a series of panel discussions on the diverse applications to which you can apply NetBeans;
  • GlassFish Community Day, featuring the GlassFish roadmap, an executive panel, and customer stories;
  • the Java Strategy and Technical Keynotes, laying out the vision for Java's future (and often including some surprise announcements);
  • finally, the day's formal events end with the Taylor Street Open House, where the 2013 Duke's Choice Award winners will be announced (here are last year's winners).

So, it's a pretty non-stop day -- including for James Gosling, who will be participating in several NetBeans Day sessions. More later...
