My initial JavaONE post.. hope to talk with many of you there

Posted by robogeek on May 4, 2007 at 3:33 PM PDT

So, JavaONE is next week. I'm sure you already know that, just wanted to raise the hoopla a little further. I just read an amusing posting at Javalobby Sun, Please Turn On the Light Again! wondering about the direction etc we plan to take with Java. If you've paid attention to the Ways of the Marketeer you know how they like to hold off important announcements until they can make a big splash etc. So, obviously JavaONE is our chance to make our big splash, so please consider that some announcements might have been held until we can use the big show to make the big announcements.

Anyway...

I've seen a number of postings from various people about the sessions they plan to attend. Unfortunately I don't have a conference pass and, uh, cannot attend any sessions. Except I did sign up with the CommunityONE event and that carries with it passes to attend a couple sessions. Additionally the CommunityONE schedule looks pretty interesting all by itself.

I will be hanging out at the OpenJDK booth in the Pavilion. While there I hope to record peoples thoughts about the OpenJDK project, and I will be podcasting those recordings on my other Sun blog. If you're interested in having your thoughts recorded and sent on a Podcast, stop by the booth or if you see me walking around feel free to ask me about it.. You can also leave me a Skype voicemail at "robogeek1".

On CommunityONE we have several sessions about the OpenJDK and the Mobile and Embedded projects. These should be interesting. Also interesting should be the Javaposse who is the lunchtime entertainment ..

And here's the sessions I would be trying to attend if I were able to attend sessions (from the javaone 2007 session catalog):
