JavaOne 2010 is going to be my first time on the conference. Even tough I have been developing in Java in the past 12 years I never managed to attend. The fact this is the first JavaOne under Oracle stewardship makes it yet more exciting.
Living south of the Equator doesn't make it particularly easy for me to travel, but this is not the main reason why I have missed JavaOne in the past. There were always projects and deadlines and personal events conspiring to make it impossible for me to attend.
So after such a long time I really plan to make the most of it. I will be attening the Glassfish Community Event on Sunday. In the remaining days I will try to strike a balance between watching technical sessions, meeting interesting people in the java.net community area and attending private meetings.
Below is my current tentative session schedule. Do you think I am being too ambitious? Or not ambitious enough? Are there any killer sessions I am overlooking? If you are a more experienced JavaOner please let me know!
The Java Community sessions on User Group Sunday will be run as a half-day unconference: in this closing session community members decide the topics for the four available breakout sessions. Possible topics include forming national Java user groups, improving synergy between Java Champions and Java user group leaders, accessing technical resources...
