I’m speaking at Oracle OpenWorld 2009 on Tuesday Oct 13th. This is something new. As part of the still-pending acquisition of Sun by Oracle, the companies have moved to partner more closely in a lot of areas. As part of this effort a handful of Sun talks were marshaled into Oracle OpenWorld kind-of at the last minute. I work on JavaFX, and that’s one of the technologies Oracle is interested in, so I was “invited” to give a technical session there. Pretty cool actually. It wasn’t really at the last minute; we heard about this a couple weeks back. But we bypassed all the usual submission and acceptance processes. This will be quite an adventure, as it’s been a long time since I’ve spoken at a conference other than JavaOne.
Richard Bair is my co-speaker and the talk is: Introduction to JavaFX: Amazing RIA Capabilities for Developers. (Sorry about the title; we didn’t write it, but if we had written the title, I’m sure it would have been much more boring.) The session ID is S312809 and it’s on Tuesday Oct 13th at 4pm in the Hilton Golden Gate 8 room. It’ll be a whirlwind 60-minute tour throughthe entire JavaFX platform. Come join us! It’ll be fun.
