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, ...

JavaOne 2012: Java Strategy Keynote and IBM Keynote

javaone-logo

I had a rough start to JavaOne 2012 similar to that at JavaOne 2010. It took 70 minutes for the people handling the check-in to provide me with a JavaOne badge due to ‘computer and printer technical difficulties.’ Although I’m not the most patient person in the world, the part of this that was even more disappointing than the wait ...

JavaOne 2012: Difficult Decisions

javaone-logo

It was recently announced that the JavaOne 2012 Schedule Builder is now available. I have signed up for my first cut at sessions that I will attend, but found myself experiencing the typical feelings of excitement and disappointment as I did so. If I was forced to make a Top Ten list of the sessions I have been most interested ...

JavaOne 2012 – 2400 hours to go! Some recommendations

javaone-logo

As you might have seen the JavaOne 2012 Content Catalog is online. The Program Committee had some very intense weeks of sorting, reviewing, rating and discussing every single proposal and we finally managed to setup a (hopefully) interesting mix for you. With exactly 105 days or 2400 hours to go I thought it could be a good day to offer ...

It will contain the 28 specifications we already know from the forerunner plus a number of new specs. Nobody can tell you about the exact number at them moment because EE 7 ...

JavaOne is Rebuilding Momentum

javafx-logo

Just finished up an extremely busy week at JavaOne and there was a lot to like about this year’s event. There were plenty of surprise announcements, lots of good content/sessions, and a lot of improvements on the venue and organization. For folks who have been patiently waiting for me to publish all my talks, I apologize for the delay… giving ...
