JavaOne

I was very pleased to see the JFrog team take me up on my suggestion early this year that "Maybe the JFrog team will consider giving a presentation on how they put all this together at JavaOne this September". Unfortunately for me, the session (Building a Massively Scalable Cloud Service from the Ground Up) was already filled to capacity as I walked up to the door, so I was unable to attend....

Unlike some recent JavaOnes, JavaOne 2013 was more about maintaining Java's momentum in multiple directions than specific major announcements. Just before JavaOne started, we ran a Java.net poll that asked developers to predict what category of JavaOne 2013 announcement will have the broadest impact. A total of 274 votes were cast in the poll, which ran for two weeks including the entirety of...

What happens if you configure a Hadoop-centric scalable big data infrastructure running on the Amazon EC2 cloud, that's programmed to perform some very basic processing on delimited ASCII data records (about 30 characters in each record), and you feed it a single data record? How quickly do you think that massively powerful system would process that teensy, trivial input data set? Milliseconds?...

Government... Isn't interacting with it your favorite social pastime? What? It's not? OK, so what don't you like about it? What? You're saying that, in your country, you can't just log into your favorite government sites and experience speedy, reliable, secure services? I'll guess, then, that you must not live in Ecuador... Poor you! But, don't feel too bad. From what Java Champion Jeff...

At the JavaOne 2013 Java Technical Keynote, there was a series of demos of software that enables two people to play chess, using some of Java's latest features, including Java EE 7 Websockets, many variations of Java 8 (recent weekly builds), Lambda Expressions, Java ME, Embedded Java, ... It was an impressive demo of many of Java's recently-released and not-yet-finally-released capabilities,...

Based on the results of the last-completed Java.net poll, this year's JavaOne in San Francisco, CA is going to be a huge success. Of course, Java.net polls aren't scientific, but it's still surprising when developers overwhelmingly select a single option in a poll. A total of 2146 votes were cast in the poll, making this one of the more popular polls in recent months. The exact question and...

The JavaOne India Call for Papers is now open. The conference will take place May 8-9 in Hyderabad, India. The call for papers will be open through March 15. Notifications will be sent out to speakers in early April. The JavaOne Shanghai Call for Papers is also still open. That conference takes place in Shanghai, China July 22-25. The JavaOne Shanghai call for papers ends soon (March 1...

I was pleased at JavaOne 2012 to have an opportunity to converse with JFrog founder Yoav Landman (@yoavlandman). JFrog, in case you're unfamiliar with the company name, is the inventor of Artifactory, the Java repository management solution that won a 2011 Duke's Choice Award. They also regularly produce cool swag tshirts (see below). Yoav was very busy at JavaOne 2012, but with advance...

In preparing for my JavaOne 2012 conversation with Java Champion Fabiane Bizinella Nardon, I was considering lots of questions about her work in the Brazilian health care system (her work as architect of what's considered the world's largest Java EE application won a Duke's Choice Award in 2005), about the state of Java in Brazil, about her co-leadership of Java.net's Java Tools Community, etc....

At JavaOne 2012, I spent some time with Badr El Houari (@badrelhouari), co-founder of the Morocco Java User Group and the just-completed JMaghreb Conference 1.0. The conference was held this past Friday and Saturday in Rabat, Morocco. More than 500 developers attended the conference each day -- an impressive start for a new Java conference! Java.net was in attendance, too, in the person of...

Just before JavaOne 2012, it was announced that the Duke's Choice Award program is being expanded to include the Latin America; Europe / Africa / Middle East; and Asia regional JavaOne conferences. The first regional Duke's Choice Awards will be held at JavaOne Latin America. The nominations deadline is Wednsday, November 7. The nominations page notes: The goal of the regional awards is to...

At JavaOne 2012, I had the opportunity to chat with Jelastic's Judah Johns. If you're not familiar with Jelastic, they are a start-up that provides cloud computing services tailored for Java. James Gosling is using Jelastic as the cloud infrastructure for his current development efforts. With Jelastic having won a 2012 Duke's Choice Award, Judah was quite busy at JavaOne 2012. So, I decided...

The past three Java.net polls were about JavaOne. The last two polls asked if you've ever attended JavaOne and your view on the most significant announcement at this year's JavaOne. Before that, our poll asked people to forecast this year's top announcement. In that poll, a majority of voters thought the most significant announcement would be related to JavaEE or JavaSE / OpenJDK, as I discussed...

Mattias Karlsson (@matkar) is a Java Champion, JUG leader, speaker, consultant, software vagabond, and founder of the Jfokus Conference (@Jfokus, which will take place February 4-6 in Stockholm, Sweden). At JavaOne 2012, I had an opportunity to chat with Mattias about Jfokus, Java User Groups, and the state of Java in Sweden. My first question was something I've actually wondered about for...

At JavaOne this year, I experimented with a new way of experiencing the conference. Rather than attending as many interesting sessions as I could fit in (as I've done in the past), I chose to focus on talking with some of Java's innovators and organizers who were present at the conference, and taking copious notes as the conversations proceeded. The result is that I now have in my possession a...

Much of my Tuesday at JavaOne 2012 was spent thinking about questions to ask the people I was going to interview, conducting the interviews, and trying to set up interviews for Wednesday. Late in the afternoon I attended the 2012 Duke's Choice Award Winners JavaOne BOF session, followed by the Duke's Choice Award Winners dinner. Today I interviewed: Mattias Karlsson, Java Champion, Stockholm...

Monday at JavaOne 2012 was a day of conversation for me - more listening than talking. As often happens at JavaOne, I heard lots, took lots of notes, launched the new Java.net "Lightning Interviews" series (tiny interviews suited for people who have only a minute or two to spare - see the first two, featuring Sven Reimers and Anton Epple), and spoke somewhat at length with Juggy (who was...

It seems not that long ago that the JavaOne 2012 Call for Papers began. Yet, here we are, in the CfP's final weekend! All proposals for JavaOne 2012 sessions must be submitted by 11:59 PM Pacific Daylight Time (US) on Monday. Now, I'm not going to try to compute the equivalent local time for everyone around the world. In my experience, you don't try to submit something like this at the very last...

In the past I've always publicized the start and end of the JavaOne Call for Papers (CfP) period. But, this year, it has special significance for me -- I'm planning to submit a proposal for a JavaOne session this year! So, with the deadline just two weeks away (11:59 PM Pacific Time on April 9), I'm paying more attention to the JavaOne CfP deadline than ever before. Now that I'm into the...

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...
