My first visit to JavaOne (2015) – 5 Things I’m looking forward to the most!

1 min read

Soon, I will be attending the best Java Event of the Year JavaOne. It is all the way over in San Francisco in the United States. As you can only imagine I am very very excited.The event is taking place from the 25th October – 29th October. This compared to other years is a lot later then usual. Luckily for me this year at JavaOne they will also be celebrating 20 years of Java.

So what is it that I am most looking forward too?

1. Attending the Event

I am really looking forward to going to JavaOne. My Colleagues at IDR Solutions have been going for the last 8 years and It is something I am yet to experience. I am also excited to able to talk to the vast amount of people who will also be attending. It will also be nice because we all share the same common interest of Java Programming, it will be also be nice to talk to different people who are attending the event and who have various levels of expertise. If you feeling like coming by to chat then come and visit us at Stand 5714 in the Hilton.


2. Going to San Francisco

I am also looking forward to going to the city itself,  San Francisco isn’t somewhere where I have visited before. I am planning to make the most of my visit and travel out two days early, that way I am able to sight see and view all of the history and landmarks that San Francisco holds. I’m looking forward to going to visit Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz and going on the Cow Train.

3. Performing my First Talk

Yep, thats right. Not only am I going to be attending JavaOne, I am also lucky enough to be able to perform my first BOF talk (It is all about ‘Writing Better Code: How the NetBeans IDE Helps You Write, Test, and Debug Java’). I’m a little bit nervous but it’s a once in a lifetime opportunity. Not many people can say “I traveled to San Francisco, while I was there, I went to the best Java Event of the year and I performed my own talk”.

4. Rocking out to a Concert

Every year Oracle put together an amazing Appreciation Event which is held on Treasure Island. Each year they have a performing act, this year we will be rocking out to the legendary Elton John.
