The JavaOne Session Builder is now up and available for setting up your sessions. If you are not used to the JavaOne ritual, it is always a good idea to sign-up for sessions well in advance so you don’t get bumped out of the more popular ones. This also helps them fix the room allocation so popular talks get the right size room.
I put together my own schedule of all the JavaFX-related content I plan to attend, and published it on Google Calendar. It is also a pretty good guide to some of the top JavaFX content that is being featured at JavaOne this year. — Apologies to my fellow speakers with conflicting session slots. I wish I could be in multiple places at once, but even rich client technology is not that advanced — yet.
Note: Click for details — sessions I am actually giving are highlighted in green.
Also, for those of you brave enough to attempt to use the schedule builder, it is no simple feat. The UI is fairly convoluted, so getting your schedule tweaked to be just right takes a lot of time and experimentation. Fortunately, I did a lot of this work for you and have figured out the happy path through the system.
JavaOne Schedule Builder Happy Path:
- Login to the system and go to the JavaOne Content Catalog
- Setup your filters to get the sessions you want (if you are reading this, you probably want to search on “javafx”)
- Click on the stars to pick the sessions you are interested in — this adds them to the “My interests” list
- Finally, click on “Schedule My Interests” and follow the little wizard UI
Just about any other path through the system (scheduling by time, resolving conflicts as you add sessions, etc.) is fraught with peril, so be warned.
Enjoy, and I hope to see you at JavaOne!
