JavaOne 2012: Scala Tricks

javaone-logo

The first session I attended after lunch was Venkat Subramaniam‘s ‘Scala Tricks,’ held in the Hilton Golden Gate 3/4/5 conference room area. This is the first session in which I switched my planned session during JavaOne. I switched it last night as I look at my day’s schedule and realized that, although excited about Lambda, I felt like I had ...

JavaOne 2012: What’s New in Scala 2.10

javaone-logo

After getting lunch, I went to Hilton Golden Gate 6/7/8 to see Martin Odersky‘s (Typesafe) presentation ‘What’s New in Scala 2.10.’ It is always an opportunity to hear a language’s creator discuss the language that he created. Odersky stated by providing a brief history of Scala: 1996-1997 Pizza 1998-2000 GJ, Java generics, javac 2003-2006 The Scala ‘Experiment’ 2006-2009 Industrial Strength ...

JavaOne 2012: Looking into the JVM Crystal Ball

javaone-logo

I returned to Plaza A/B in the Hilton to attend the fourth session on Monday, but first went up to the top floor of the Hilton to pick up lunch. I’m reminded every year on the first day of JavaOne how surprisingly frustrating the first day’s lunch acquiring process is for everyone involved. I know I found the experience a ...

javaone-logo

Guillaume Laforge’s (SpringSource/VMware/@glaforge) ‘What’s New in Groovy 2.0′ presentation was in the same conference room (Hilton Golden Gate 6/7/8) as Martin Odersky’s ‘What’s New in Scala 2.10‘ presentation, but I decided to leave the room between these sessions for three reasons: You tend to get kicked out of a room before the next session anyway to ensure that registered individuals ...

I returned to Parc 55 (Mission conference room) to see Max Katz‘s (Exadel Developer Relations) ‘Building Mobile Apps with HTML5 and Java’ Birds-of-a-Feather (BoF) presentation. Specifically, Katz is in Developer Relations for Tiggzi, a cloud-based app platform. Katz only had a single slide before going into demonstration mode.

JavaOne 2012: A Walk Through of Groovy’s AST Transformations

javaone-logo

I made the very short walk from Hilton Plaza A/B back to Hilton Golden Gate 3/4/5 to see the presentation ‘Walk through Groovy’s AST Transformations.’ Groovy‘s AST Transformations are something I’ve dabbled with directly a few times, but have more often benefited from others’ work with them. I had started reading the Packt Publishing book Groovy for Domain-Specific Languages, but ...

JavaOne 2012: The Road to Lambda

javaone-logo

One of the presentations I most eagerly anticipated for JavaOne 2012 was Brian Goetz‘s ‘The Road to Lambda.’ The taste of Lambda at last night’s Technical Keynote only added to the anticipation. Held in the Hilton Plaza A/B, this was a short walk from the previous presentation that I attended in Golden Gate A/B/C. I had expected the relatively large ...

JavaOne 2012: How Do Non-Blocking Data Structures Work?

javaone-logo

I was a little surprised when I looked at my schedule for today and noted that all of the sessions I have currently planned to see today are in the Hilton. This became a little less surprising when I realized that about half of the JavaOne presentations are in the Hilton and that they seem to be roughly located by ...

JavaOne 2012: JavaOne Technical Keynote

javaone-logo

Mark Reinhold started off the JavaOne 2012 Technical Keynote. He said this year’s edition would be a little different because it would use largely the same example to illustrate various aspects of Java rather than standalone individual coverage of each component of Java. Richard Bair and Jasper Potts of the JavaFX team (and associated with FXExperience) introduced this example application, ...
