JavaOne 2010?

December 3, 2009

Anyone care to venture a guess as to whether there will be a JavaOne 2010? I know it’s pointless to speculate, but it sure is fun! Here are some facts to inform your guess:

Conference Year Call for Papers Conference Dates
2008 Oct. 26th – Nov. 16th, 2007 May 6th – 9th, 2008
2009 Nov. 19th – Dec. 19th, 2008 June 2nd – 5th, 2009
2010 ? June 22nd – 25th, 2010

According to the Moscone Center’s website, JavaOne 2010 has been scheduled for June 22nd – 25th, 2010. There hasn’t been a call for papers yet, but maybe that’s because the conference is a little later than usual.

What do you think?

  1. Wow! I had no idea it was in question. But then, I’m not plugged into the larger Java community, having spent most of my career in higher ed and in middleware, which tends to be language agnostic.

    Is this part of the continuing implosion of Sun as it twists in the wind in its pending merger with Oracle? I sure hope the language doesn’t suffer…

  2. Ken Says:

    Yeah, the reason JavaOne 2010 is being questioned at all is because of the acquisition by Oracle. We’ll see what happens!


  3. Well, I’m not a big fan of Oracle. They make a good database product in terms of its scaling well and being functional. I used it quite a bit when I was doing identity management, but I wouldn’t buy their identity management product. (Novell has the best commercial product, but we had grown our own from back before anything decent existed.)

    See last paragraph here suggesting no more JavaOne under Oracle rule: http://www.theregister.co.uk/2009/10/06/sun_surprised_investigation/


  5. [...] Since the conference’s inception, JavaOne has been held in San Francisco’s Moscone Center. Last year, the convention center blocked off June 22-25 for the 2010 conference, though after the acquisition announcement, Sun balked on calling for papers. [...]
