The JavaOne Call for Proposals is going to stay open until April 23rd, so you have a few extra days to get in those last minute submissions.
Still don’t know what to submit for a talk, here are some ideas:
- Java + Devices – With the Early Access of Java 8 for ARM, you can do a lot of cool stuff on tiny little devices. Anyone for hacking Java onto a robot, quadcopter, or refrigerator? [well, maybe that last one wasn't so tiny...]
- Java 8/9 Hacking – While the Java 8 and 9 releases are still forthcoming, you can already play with the bits via the Early Access lambda releases and OpenJDK Jigsaw builds. Why not get ahead of the curve and show us what Java development will be like 5 years from now!
- 353-356-352-236-343 – What do these numbers have in common? Yes, you guessed it correctly, these are some of the many JSR specs that make up the new Java EE 7 release. There is a lot of ground to cover here, so share some of your JSON/WebSocket/Batch Kung-fu with your peers. :)
- Duke in 3 Dimensions – The new JavaFX 3D support opens up some pretty cool possibilities that were only fathomable in fancy JavaOne keynotes. Now the rest of us can play with real 3D APIs via the JavaFX 8 Early Access and create some compelling demos and presentations for JavaOne.
I am sure you have some cool ideas of other things you would like to hear about as well… and if you are interested, chances are that a lot of folks would appreciate a talk on it that you can help make happen!
