JavaOne 2008: my sessions choice...

· 4 min read

I have attended or presented at JavaOne for the last 6 years when I was living in the SF Bay Area... But this year I won't be in San Francisco for JavaOne. As you can guess, I am sad about that... However, I still look at the schedule and events, and here what I would like to do:

  • Groovy/Grails meetup organized by G2One and NFJS
  • Sun and Oracle General Sessions: Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday at 8:30am. I am particularly interested to see the Oracle's one  talk about the Oracle/BEA deal... May be we will be able to learn more about the products roadmap
  • TS-6050 - Comparing JRuby and Groovy
  • TS-5274 - Groovy on a Cloud: Testing Java EE Platform Applications on Amazon EC2

I have probably selected many conflicting sessions, not really an issue since I am not going there. That said, this year again JavaOne looks quite exciting and a lot of content again around Scripting Languages and Framework; Web2.0 related technologies and SOA.

I hope that I will be there for the 2009 one ;)
