Developers have been asking frequently lately if we have any new certification courses out, and I am happy to say that we do. See below:
The Java Fundamentals chat within Second Life was a Huge success! We had about 25 attendees, and everyone was enthusiastic with their questions. We had a great discussion. In case you missed it, I've posted it below with minor editing. Additionally, at the end is the information from the Note card that the attendees received.
I thought it was a little odd that only twenty something people sat with in a room that normally could seat over 100. I had thought many others would be interested in this topic.
The pace has really picked up here at JavaOne. Streams of people going and coming from the rooms, the Pavillion is milling with crowds, but overall everything seems to be running smoothly.
Yesterday was interesting, starting off with the General Session, which hosted a live band, and lots of announcements.
The Java University course Exploring the Struts Framework and How it Supports Web Component Development was really outstanding. I wasn't sure exactly what to expect, as this area of JavaOne was new to me. I was pleasantly surprised.
The java.sun.com staff are gearing up to cover the JavaOne conference this year. We are attending some of the sessions and writing articles and blogs to cover the event. It looks like it's going to be a great year.
