I was disappointed that I was not able to attend JavaOne 2013, but was happy to see numerous useful posts covering this annual conference. In this post, I link to many of these resources and provide a brief summary of what each post discusses in relation to JavaOne 2013.

Keynotes

The keynotes are where the "big announcements" tend to occur. Fortunately, several online posts quoted key portions of the keynotes and provided different perspectives on what was said and the implications of the announcements. I group these references by order of my favorite keynotes at JavaOne: technical, strategy, and community.

Several blog posts have been written about specific technical presentation sessions, birds of a feather sessions, and hands-on lab sessions.
