JavaOne 2009, Prelude: Nerd Migration
Thursday, May 28, 2009
It’s that time of year again. Java nerds the world over are packing an extra inhaler and their well-worn copy of “Java Puzzlers”, preparing for the annual trek to California.
In a few short days, I myself will confront my fear of flying and leave the muggy Midwest for the cool, crisp ocean air and azure skies of San Francisco — home of JavaOne.
Every morning I’ll walk from the hotel, down Mission Street, past the impossibly chic Bay Area natives, to the Moscone Conference Center, where I’ll be among my flannel wearing, asthmatic, brethren, safely indoors, sheltered from the harsh northern California sun (or depending on your tolerance for puns: basking in Northern California Sun).
Browsing through the sessions it looks like there is some quality stuff this year. However, outside of a few talks and the odd BoF, there doesn’t seem to be much Groovy representation (which helps to explain why my proposed talk, “Wow, Guys! Look at all the Groovy Talks Here at JavaOne!” was rejected).
It’s nice to see more sessions on Scala this year, and even Clojure makes an appearance in the “Script Bowl” session.
Also, apparently there are a few sessions on a new language called “JavaFX”…I wonder what that’s all about.
