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.

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-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 ...

Guillaume Laforge’s ([email protected]) ‘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 ...

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-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 ...
