JavaOne June 2-5, 2009

As every year, JavaOne is approaching too fast ;-) Only three more weeks to go.

I thought I'd collect some of the noteworthy bits and pieces to help you start your planning for the show.

CommunityOne West

CommunityOne is a free conference that focuses on open source innovation and collaboration. CommunityOne West runs for three days and starts Monday June 1st (the day before JavaOne).

  • You can choose from over 70 sessions, lightning talks, hands-on labs, and a whole lot more. Signing up for CommunityOne West is FREE and includes access to the Pavilion as well as the JavaOne general sessions. Sign up at the CommunityOne West home page.
  • The Community Corner at CommunityOne West will be the gathering place for folks to to hear other talks, give a demo, participate in podcasts, meet community leaders and members of the Executive Board, or just relax and hang out for a bit. You can also volunteer to work in the Community Corner and receive a free shirt. For more info and to sign-up please see the Community Corner wiki.
  • Roger Brinkley (Java Mobile & Embedded Community leader), myself, and some of the other members of the Java Mobile & Embedded Community will be hanging out at the Community Corner at various times - please stop by for a chat!

JavaOne Mobile, Embedded, and Media/Entertainment Content

  • This is another year featuring a chock-full schedule around mobile, embedded, and media/entertainment-related topics - be sure to take your time browsing the content catalog
  • Please not that, for 2009, the related content has been split up into three different tracks so be sure to check all three tracks (click below to see the content for each particular track)
