After a fun week in San Francisco for JavaOne, there's a group of us, including fellow bloggers Jason Hunter, Glenn Vanderburg, and Mike Clark are heading on to the next Java conference on the schedule: The Wisconsin Java Software Symposium, part of the No Fluff Just Stuff conference series. It'll be interesting to make the shift from the big conference where there's lots of people that...

One of the surprising things about JavaOne for me this year is the amount of talk about Ant. Not the normal "Ant is cool" buzz that I hear (and which still amazes me), but a different kind of talk. There's talk of experimentation and trying out new things. And it all seems to be focusing on how to alleviate the burden that the decision to use XML as the Ant configuration format has...

One of the interesting things for me about the experiment so far has been checking out the reactions from the blogosphere that I navigate through every day. Ted Leung posts: "A shared CVS repository, wiki's and a bunch of weblogs do not a community make. Sun might be able to get bunches of communities around individual projects, but growing a community across projects takes time...

Mike Cannon-Brookes says that wasn't really launched today because it's not linked in from Well, even though was launched today (albeit with no mention of the weblogs section of the site at the keynote), Mike does make the excellent observation that there isn't a link from to Which is very odd indeed. And looking a bit deeper, it appears...

Matt Raible (whose blog I read) has a few questions about the blogs. Here are some answers: Is the content moderated? Nope. At least not under normal circumstances. If one of us said something libelous, then moderation would probably kick in. But until we hit that point, we should be free from moderation. Daniel Steinberg, the Editor-in-Chief of the site, wants to take a very hands...

The morning keynote is done and over with. There wasn't a lot there that stuck with me, but then, it's the non-technical keynote. So what did stick? Two things. One was the best line of the keynote when Jonathan Schwartz said, "The lawyers work for me." Man, I hope that's really true and not a joke. One of the biggest complaints I hear about Sun is that it seems that the lawyers are in...

It's after 9 in the morning. An unnatural time for a software developer to be awake. And even more unnatural after having been up late last night socializing (the most important part of JavaOne). Its enough to make one wonder why they don't start the conference at noon. Unfortunately, if they started the show at noon, it would encroach into that valuable socialization time. On the other hand,...

The well known secret of JavaOne is that the best stuff doesn't happen behind the doors of the presentation rooms at Moscone, but it happens in the restaurants, bars, and other meeting spots around Moscone. Sure, you can hear good things in the presentations, but it's the socializing with all those other attendees running around that you really find the benefits of coming to JavaOne. And that...

Once again, JavaOne is upon us. It's hard to believe that this is the 8th JavaOne since it all started. Somehow, amazingly, I've been to each and every one. And each year is different. The first was, in many ways, the best. Java was new, I was younger, and every session was an opportunity to learn more and more. I remember going back to my hotel room exhausted every night from the raw torrent of...
