If you're going to San Francisco... be sure to get your new books signed while there! Every year, one of the recurring highlights of JavaOne is the release of new books.
Covering the full range of hot topics presented at the conference, these books are released at JavaOne because, well, that's simply where everything happens in Java land and beyond.
Even better, a number of authors of new books tend to be available at JavaOne, giving presentations on topics relating to their newly released books. Throughout the conference, outside the book store, book signings are held. You can buy the book you've been looking forward to and then chat with the author (and/or others related to the book, such as in my case, where I'm not an author, but an editor/translator) and even get it signed.
This year is no different to any other and here is the official schedule (click to enlarge it):
See you there!
