What will you be presenting at JavaOne this year?

We will show our vision for the future of WORA--mobile devices (Tablets & Smartphones) are already more common than PC's by a good margin. We leverage Java's WORA capabilities with our open source project to create native applications for all devices (including iOS, Windows Phone, Android etc.)

Extra Challenge: Give us all of the above in less than 100 characters.

Create native mobile apps in Java using the FOSS Codename One toolchain supports iOS, Android & more.

What are you looking forward to at JavaOne?

I hope to meet James Gosling, I think that what we are doing is a great extension of his vision. There are also quite a lot of Java champions that I would like to talk to. There are quite a few interesting sessions on my schedule, both in enterprise deployment and client development.

  • Practical Pros and Cons of Replacing Swing with JavaFX in Existing Applications - We have a lot of Swing code and are pretty much struggling with incorporating FX features such as WebKit. Plus great speaker list.
  • High-Performance Java Applications Without Dynamic Code: Ahead-of-Time Code Generators for iOS - Sounds really interesting and relevant to what we are doing.
  • Architecting Enterprise JavaFX 8 - I don't think JavaFX has a future, but if someone can convince me otherwise its Adam Bien.
  • What's New in JavaFX 8 - Richard and Jasper always have an interesting demo.
Do you have any tips to share about how to best enjoy the conference and San Francisco?

Bring something warm. My first time around I picked free t-shirts from all the booths for additional layers of warmth.... There is a great small Thai restaurant on Geary st. not far from Jack in the Box. It doesn't look like much but its lovely and pretty authentic.

Cool NetBeans Tips and Tricks for Java EE 7 Development [UGF10369]
Architecting Enterprise JavaFX 8 Applications [CON2229]
Demystifying Java EE [CON2231]
Lean and Opinionated Java EE 7 Applications [CON2196]
Unit Tests Don't Break: Stress-Testing Java EE Applications [CON2230]

What will you be presenting at JavaOne this year?

In my Java FX talk, I would like to introduce my way of building Model View Presenter JavaFX applications with Scene Builder, Maven and Dependency Injection.

In the Java EE related sessions, I'm intending to bust some myths at the beginning session "Demystifying Java EE".

In the session "Lean and Opinionated Java EE 7 Applications", I plan to discuss Java EE 7 architectures with some patterns and idioms. Consistency and simplicity are key. Code walk-throughs are included.

In my "Unit Tests Don't Break: Stress-Testing Java EE Applications", I would like to stress test a Java EE 7 application, live and on stage, and address some pitfalls at the same time. Don't expect too much slides in my sessions. I usually use source code to explain my intentions.

...and I'm really looking forward to the "Cool NetBeans Tips and Tricks for Java EE 7 Development" session. Last year it was fun to hack something on stage with NetBeans in the crowded room. Btw. I'm using NetBeans in all my projects as well, so to minimize the risk I will use NetBeans in all my sessions as well :-)

Extra Challenge: Give us all of the above in less than 100 characters.

Think. Delete. Write. Lean Code with Java SE / FX / EE.

What are you looking forward to at JavaOne?

I'm really looking forward to attend the sessions and keynotes delivered by Oracle engineers. JavaOne is the unique opportunity to meet the engineers who actually build Java itself. It is always valuable to attend a session from someone who actually implements Java and not only talks about that.  I'm also curious about the news / announcements around Java.

Do you have any tips to share about how to best enjoy the conference and San Francisco?

JavaOne means to me one thing: technical content. Everything else is secondary. For that reason I enroll for the sessions early and attempt to attend as many sessions as only possible. This was my strategy from the first JavaOne I attended in 2000. I also try to avoid parties. They are not compatible with consumption of technical content.

Cool NetBeans Tips and Tricks for Java EE 7 Development [UGF10369]
10 Tips for Java EE 7 with PrimeFaces [CON3638]

What will you be presenting at JavaOne this year?

I'll be co-speaking at the session: 10 Tips for Java EE 7 with PrimeFaces. In the session, we will take you on a JSF tour with the help of Java EE 7 together with PrimeFaces and NetBeans IDE. The tour will begin with an introduction of PrimeFaces and its features, such as UI components and themes. Focusing on Java EE 7, we will examine HTML5 friendly templates, resource libraries contracts, faces flow, EL operators, and lambda magic. Throughout, you will be shown how to apply the principles and concepts learned through working examples in NetBeans IDE. The talk will be brought to you "from the horse's mouth", that is, by engineers from PrimeFaces and NetBeans IDE.

Extra Challenge: Give us all of the above in less than 100 characters.

PrimeFaces 4.0 - Sentinel will rock on at JavaOne with cools tips from JAVAEE7 side.

What are you looking forward to at JavaOne?

Sessions mostly based on HTML5, GlassFish, NetBeans and specially Java EE. I don't have any specific people to meet, but definitely will get together with the JSF folks. I'll try to attend as much sessions as possible and meet Enterprise Java people between coffee breaks.

Do you have any tips to share about how to best enjoy the conference and San Francisco?

Breezy city! Make sure to keep warm--load up on free coffee. Be aware that shuttles between the venues provide free transfer. The exhibition hall is the best place to meet up and chat with new people. If you see me--I'll be wearing a PrimeFaces tshirt--come say hello! :)

There are lots of places to wander around in San Francisco. The crab shacks and the pier are a must-visit for me! The seafood is worth trying if you're into that. And don't forget that this year Maroon 5 will be headlining at Treasure Island for JavaOne and Oracle Open World folks

GlassFish Community: The Foundation for Opportunity [UGF9871]
So You Want to Become a Published Technical Author [BOF3692]
Unlocking the Java EE Platform [CON3475]

What will you be presenting at JavaOne this year?

I'll be giving three presentations at JavaOne this year.

On Sunday morning I'll be talking about my GlassFish experiences during the GlassFish community Event.

On Monday Night I'll be participating in a Birds of a Feather session about becoming a technical author.

On Tuesday afternoon I'll be giving a demo illustrating how to build Java EE/HTML5 application using NetBeans.

Extra Challenge: Give us all of the above in less than 100 characters.

Speaker at 3 JavaOne sessions this year: GlassFish, NetBeans/JavaEE7/HTML5, becoming a tech author.

What are you looking forward to at JavaOne?

There are so many highly talented members of the Java community that mostly get to interact online and rarely have a chance to meet in person. JavaOne gives me the opportunity to interact with these individuals in person. Additionally, I especially like the sessions that give a "sneak peek" at what's coming in the near future for the technologies and products I use day to day such as Java EE, GlassFish and NetBeans.

Do you have any tips to share about how to best enjoy the conference and San Francisco?

I have been to JavaOne a few times. In no particular order, here are a few things that first time attendees may not be aware of:

If your hotel is not walking distance from the conference, there are free shuttles provided to and from the conference, so no need to walk a few miles back and forth nor spend money on taxis.

For those of us that need our caffeine fix, free coffee is provided at the conference.

There is usually a 30 minute period of "down time" between sessions, use this time wisely and try to get to the sessions early so that you get a good seat.

You will be getting a lot of information in a short time, like drinking water our of a fire hydrant. It's impossible to digest everything at once, but you will certainly go back home with lots of fresh ideas to apply to your software development projects.

Coding for Desktop and Mobile with HTML5 and Java EE 7 [CON3287]
Red Hat and Oracle: Delivering on the Promise of Interoperability in Java EE 7 [CON7828]

What will you be presenting at JavaOne this year?

I will be talking about the great combination of HTML5 on the frontend and Java EE 7 on the backend--it's as if they were made for each other. And of course about NetBeans, which supports both and helps you develop HTML5 and Java EE 7 applications not only for the desktop, but also for mobile devices. NetBeans 7.4 contains many improvements for HTML5 developers (also known as Project Easel) as well as new support for Java EE 7. Hence, the title of my talk: Coding for Desktop and Mobile with HTML5 and Java EE 7.

In my other talk with Max Andersen of RedHat/JBoss, titled Red Hat and Oracle: Delivering on the Promise of Interoperability in Java EE 7, we will highlight the interoperability and vendor-neutral focus of the new Java EE 7 platform and demonstrate how the same application works easily on both GlassFish and JBoss. While this talk is primarily concerned about server-side code, we will also touch on tools (including NetBeans 7.4) as well as client-side technologies.

Extra Challenge: Give us all of the above in less than 100 characters.

HTML5 and Java EE 7 work great together, and NetBeans 7.4 is an excellent tool for both.

What are you looking forward to at JavaOne?

As it is every year, JavaOne is a great opportunity to learn about the new exciting things that the Java community is working on, and to meet people who are passionate about Java.

Do you have any tips to share about how to best enjoy the conference and San Francisco?

Try to be busy. Attend every session you are at least mildly interested in. Don't miss any opportunity to meet new people, and to chat with the people you already know. Tour the exhibition floor and stop at the booths. Go to parties. Don't be afraid to ask questions in the sessions. I know that doing all this is very demanding and tiring, and in the evenings you will be exhausted, but in retrospect you will find this very rewarding.

The Curious Case of JavaScript on the JVM [CON2952]
Script Bowl 2013: The Battle for Supremacy and Survival [CON2653]

What will you be presenting at JavaOne this year?

I'll talk about the Gradle integration of NetBeans. As a short demonstration, it is quite challenging to choose what not to include. Therefore, I plan to demonstrate only features that are easy to miss. For example: How to specify using a particular Gradle version without (manually) downloading Gradle; Custom task variables, which can be used to create custom project wizards. Also, I hope to exploit the new Tooling API (currently being developed) of Gradle 1.8 to significantly improve the plugin before JavaOne.

Extra Challenge: Give us all of the above in less than 100 characters.

Expect major improvements in IDE support in Gradle 1.8.

What are you looking forward to at JavaOne?

I'll be meeting Hans Dockter (CEO of Gradleware); also other Gradle and NetBeans developers who I have been nagging with new feature requests. :) As for sessions, my favorite subject is concurrency, so I'm sure to attend to some related sessions (e.g.: CON7962).

Do you have any tips to share about how to best enjoy the conference and San Francisco?

This will be my first time at JavaOne. I wanted to attend to JavaOne in the past but I was discouraged by the time required to travel to San Francisco. I hope Oracle will consider moving JavaOne to Budapest :).

Attila Kelemen RADIM KUBACKI
Android Developer

NetBeans Community Tools with JRebel, Jelastic, and More [UGF10388]

What will you be presenting at JavaOne this year?

I will talk about Android application development using NetBeans--showing a quick demo of what you can do and how it compares to other choices (Android Studio and Eclipse ADT plugins). There will also be notes about project evolution and future plans.

Extra Challenge: Give us all of the above in less than 100 characters.

How to develop an application for Android using NetBeans IDE with NBAndroid plugins.

What are you looking forward to at JavaOne?

I'm looking forward to see a lot of interesting people and find about new interesting things and projects in Java world.

Do you have any tips to share about how to best enjoy the conference and San Francisco?

Remember that BOFs (Birds of a Feather) are often more interesting than general sessions if you want to learn cool stuff.
