Decisions, Decisions… Figuring Out Which JavaOne Sessions to Attend
Although there were a few quirks in dealing with the Oracle catalogue, I was able to narrow my search and find some great sessions, and then take a snapshot of my list. If you take a look below, you'll see the search options that allow you to select the conference, session type, track (Core Java, Java Frontier), and category (Best Practices, Case Study, Tips and Tricks):
Then you get your results. Purple squares are for JavaOne, red ones are for Open World. You can click on the four-way arrow icons and drag these sessions into the right hand "My Interests" region.
I was blown away at how many sessions looked very relevant and interesting. Oracle obviously did a good job at selecting some quality topics. On my first pass through the JavaOne sessions (didn't even get a chance to look at the BOFs) I had completely filled the "My Interests" queue.
Here are some of the sessions I selected before running out of space:
This preliminary list already has me excited if I am lucky enough to attend JavaOne *fingers crossed*. Obviously, there's no way I can attend all of these since there are already several head-to-head conflicts. Unfortunately, only Harry Potter has a solution for this problem. Which means I, and many others attending JavaOne, have to begin the painful task of narrowing down our list to a more manageable amount.
What sessions are going to fill your queue? Are there any that you absolutely must see?
