Someone who is preparing to attend big conferences like JavaOne and Jazoon'07 should make a criterious preparation in order to optimize the chances of learning and making contacts to smart people. Even minor details like clever clothes can make difference between a sucessful trip or a expensive waste of time. For me, a blogger, an important detail during the conferences is a robust notebook: a...

The 2007 JavaOne Conference is right around the corner, May 8 - 11. JavaOne is the largest Java technology conference of the year. Drop the excuses, you have to be there.
Regular attendees know that you have to plan things in advance. The number of sessions, the huge crowd, and all the show floor distractions practically require you to plan ahead. So, I'm making a top 10 list of "Desktop" track...

Last week I received the news I expected the most: I was confirmed to go to JavaONE 2007. My last decade of Java living was a crazy moving on and passionate experience. I am leading a community, which has more than thousand people who are there working and promoting Java everyday :) during these last 8 years I tried 8 times to go to JavaONE. This year I am coming :)))))))
A decade of great Java...

Web services strategy, here is a compilation of all the related sessions:

The people I work for have rewarded my countless hours of hard labor by approving my application to go to TheServerSide.com's Java Symposium. This comes a year after I attended JavaOne in San Francisco. So why did I choose TSS Java Symposium over Java One? I'm sure you give a rats ass about my opinion but here it comes anyways.
JavaOne is too big: It's f***ing huge! There's like 10,000...

The JavaOne team finally took to heart the attendee feedback for "more community involvement" in content selection. After whipping up a "friendly and collaborative" legal agreement, we enlisted the expertise of these folks to review, comment and selection of technical session and birds-of-a-feather. I've also identified the track that they were involved in reviewing:
Andre Charland: Nitobi...

The 2006 JavaOne Conference was my very first one. I joined the team just prior to the launch of the Call for Papers, in early November. I was warned to "hold on". I had no idea what to expect, it was a pulse racing couple of days.
And this year is shaping up in very much the same way, it's JavaOne Conference Call for Papers, The Sequel!
I just checked our database and at 6pm on 12/13 I...

Reminds me of "To Infinity and Beyond" by the famous Disney
Lightyear. A brief description
of Buzz Lightyear is:
"He's the ultimate good cop. Buzz proudly fights for all that is good
and pure in the universe. His toughest fight is against the greatest threat ever
known to the Galactic Alliance...the most nefarious force of evil in the
universe...the diabolical fiend...

How about a fidellity program for Java events? If you attend several Java
events during the year, why not to get some advantage in the overall price?
If your company usually support Java events for its developers, what about
to present to the financial sector a yearly package of events with discount
and benefits? This simple idea can provide more comfortable or at least give
for more people the...

Dion Almaer and I were given the opportunity to deliver a talk on Ajax at JavaOne earlier this year. The session went pretty well, and I found myself giving a repeat on the last day of JavaOne that also went pretty well. Many thanks to those of you that attended and especially to those of you that gave us feedback both in person after the talks or via the eval forms.
One of the things a lot of...

Do you wanna see how James Gosling, Charlie Hunt, Rich Green, Tim Boudreau, Simon Phipps and a lot of personalities from javaland got a kick ? Go and see this amazing video, made during JavaOne 2006.
This is a quote from the site

It's that time again... JavaOne time. What? Barely over the parties from last year? That's ok - it's in May. But meetings are starting to determine the content for May, and I thought I'd write a quick blog to ask - what do *you* want to see at JavaOne in May? I'm working on web track (again), so web related suggestions are especially appreciated.
My current thought - we're going to have...

One of the things I enjoy about fatherhood is being, for however brief a period, somewhat of an authority on life. Well, thanks to Duke, the appearance of parental infallibility has come to an early end.
Ever since JavaOne 2006 (where I got this nice green shirt), I've had to deal with all kinds of questions from my four and two year old daughters:
Girls: "Daddy, what's that on your shirt?"

A new sample is added to WSIT samples that shows an enterprise Web service
enabling integration both within and across boundaries. This sample demonstrates
a price quotation service that provides list price to clients based on the
product identifiers. The client makes a request to a Retail Quote Service (RQS)
which then communicates with multiple Wholesale Quote Service (WQS) to get the...

So many people came to JavaOne wrapup seminar held in Seoul, Korea on 8 July. It was organized as small scale(100 people expected) by Sun Korea, but I guess more than 200 people came in. I think it was so popular because this seminar covers most interesting topics in this year JavaOne - Java SE 6, Java EE 5, EJB3, Ajax and Scripting language.
My session was about "GlassFish, EJB 3.0 and Java...

Like all of Sun US, I was off last week, so I apologize if this was already mentioned (and I missed it), but the JavaOne Tech Sessions for 2006 are now online.

So although this year was the first year that I missed in string of successive JavaOne's, I thought I would share a recent email exchange from one my compatriots in the Java community who was a registered speaker. I've generalized this story for obvious reasons...
I was laughing because I got reviewed as a speaker for the BOF even though I wasn't there .... What had me really weirded out was...
