Several of us (led by Timothy Fagan who represented the group at J1 2011) will give a recap of all of the highlights of this years JavaOne conference in SF.

We also have a special guest speaker, Jim Conners from Oracle who will reprise a presentation based on a hands on lab he gave at JavaOne:


Java SE Embedded Development Made Easy

Embedded processors are so capable these days, that they often fill the role previously reserved for traditional servers and desktop systems.   Thanks in part to the tremendous advances in microprocessor design and software tools, developing embedded applications gets simpler all the time.  And in particular, with the availability of Java SE compatible Virtual Machines for the most popular configurations, development has never been more straightforward.  This talk will focus on the ease with which Java applications can be developed, debugged and deployed on these platforms.   As a major component of the presentation, a demonstration on one of the recent devices that has gained a popular following will be provided.

Jim Connors, a 25 year veteran of the computer industry, has spent the last dozen years helping customers leverage Java technologies ranging from Java Card to JavaEE.  His software experience includes stints as a compiler developer for both the C and ADA programming languages, and he is co-author of the book JavaFX - Developing Rich Internet Applications (Pearson).  You can read his occasional rantings at
