Yesterday the two days JavaZone 2010 conference finished, the conference was as good as I expected it to be. The sessions were selected very carefully to cover all sort of interest from architecture and NoSQL to security and core java APIs.
A fair portion of the participants, both in speakers group and in the audiences group were loyal participants which at least attended one of the previous conferences in past 10 years. I was one of those who participated for the first time, so I can not compare this year’s event with the previous one but those who have seen the previous events agreed that the quality of each year’s conference is better than previous year, and for this year the quality increases is way more than previous ones.
For few instances I heard people complaining about why more speakers are using English or small number of elementary level sessions (tutorials perhaps) but I believe no one found another reason for a complain.
The JourneyZone is what I am looking forward to experience in the next two days. It is the first time in the 10 years history of JavaZone that the program committee is organizing this event for the JZ participants. I am going to check out of the hotel and go for the JourneyZone.
Following album includes few photos from my session, thanks to Alexis for taking the photos. The slides is available hereI know that all videos for the sessions will be available at some point in time, but I do not know when it will become available, maybe in few days maybe in few months.
I will be attending JavaZone 2010 both as an speaker presenting NIO.2 and as an atendee sitting and learning new technologies other speakers kindly share. After looking at the list of sessions, here is the sessions I decided to attend. It is really hard to decided on which speaker and subject to choose. All speakers are known engineers and developers and selected subjects are exceptionally good.
I may change few of this items as JZ2010 staff updates the agenda but majority of the sessions will be what I have already selected. See you at JZ2010 and the JourneyZone afterward the conference itself.
Well, my abstract for a session in JavaZone 2010 accepted and I will be speaking about NIO.2, you may call it new new IO, more new IO or technically JSR-203,on 8th of September in saloon 1. I will be the second speaker in the first day of the conference so the timing will be something like 10:15 to 11:15. The session will be in English and I will give the audience an overview of IO features in Java 7 and its differences improvements over old IO framework. I estimated that I will be speaking for 55 minutes to present something around 35 slides which I have prepared their sketch.
Majority of the slides will discuss the file system capabilities included in the NIO.2, some slides will cover the differences between I/O with Java 7 and I/O in older releases. Some slides will discuss Asynchronous I/O, and other cool features of NIO.2. Almost all slides come with a sample code showing the concept in action. I will try to include more about my presentation and slides while I am completing the sketch and the first draft.
