We started a new rolling admission process for JavaOne this year where we are reviewing and accepting some of the top talks while the Call for Proposals (CFP) is still open. This gives us a chance to highlight a few of the great speakers and talks coming in and encourages external submissions early and often.
If you haven’t already submitted to the JavaOne CFP, it is still open through this Friday. If your talk gets accepted you get a free pass to attend JavaOne, and the opportunity to speak to your peers and influence the future of Java development technologies and practices.
Here is a link to the JavaOne CFP site: http://www.oracle.com/javaone/call-for-papers/information/index.html
The first round of invitations just went out. We haven’t gotten confirmation from all of these speakers yet on their acceptance, but are honored to have them submitting to JavaOne 2013 (in no particular order):
- Venkat Subramaniam
Ten cool things we can do with popular JVM Languages
- Heiko Seeberger
Scala in action
- Danno Ferrin
Building and Deploying JavaFX Applications with Gradle or Maven (or Ant!)
- Gerrit Grunwald
”Use the force Luke” or tips+tricks on how to use the capabilities of JavaFX
- Adam Bien
Lean And Opinionated Java EE 7 Applications
- Gert Brettlecker
Industrial product development: modular design in multiple dimensions with Java
Please join me in congratulation the above speakers on their invitations, and take inspiration from what they have done to submit some JavaOne sessions of your own!
