tech oriented notes to self and lessons learned
While trying to find information about technical sessions presented in JavaOne 2011 and earlier I noticed there was surprisingly little details available. Many of the results I got from googling were pointing to the JavaOne 2012 site or the links were broken. So, even though it’s been a while since the conference, I thought I’d post some notes about the themes for historical reference.
The technical sessions (487) were classified in the following tracks:
The numbers were from Oracle’s Schedule builder application.
Some of the hot topics in JavaOne 2012 were thin server architecture, REST, HTML 5, NoSQL, data grids, big data, polyglot, mobile web and cloud. There was also a lot of interest on next big things on the Java platform roadmap, especially Java SE 8 (Lambdas) and Java EE 7 related talks.
In addition to the new and exciting topics, the evergreen topics such as troubleshooting and optimization (esp. garbage collection), scalability, parallellism, design and design patterns seemed to draw a lot of attention.
