For the next 10 days Java will be all over Brazil … and I don’t mean the black, hot kind ;-)

JavaOne Latin America

First, JavaOne Latin America is in Sao Paulo from the 6th to the 8th. Choose from dozens of technical sessions, keynotes, and hands-on labs, explore the booths and DEMOGrounds in the Exhibition Area, and take advantage of the opportunities to speak first-hand with the experts and mingle with your fellow developers.

JavaOne Latin America is organized in four tracks BrazilianDukeOnAltoSax.png

  • Client Side Technologies and Rich User Experiences
  • Core Java Platform
  • Java EE, Web Profile, Platform Technologies, Web Services, and the Cloud
  • Java ME, Mobile, Embedded, and Devices

so there’s bound to be something of interest for everyone. Have a look at the schedule for more information. A full list of sessions can be found here.

JavaOne Latin America is also supported by a number of Java User Groups, so I’m particularly looking forward to the Community Keynote with our well-known Java community members Bruno Souza, Fabiane Nardon, and Vinicus Senger. Should be fun!

Also, there is a Portuguese version of the JavaOne website.

More Java Events

Next, there are a number of additional Java-related events planned, from the SOUJava Geek Bike Ride to a string of JUG events where I and several of my Java Evangelism colleagues will be speaking across Brazil on topics such as Java 7, The Future of Java, Java EE, JavaFX 2.0, and more:

Be sure to check with your local JUG for specific event information.

Hope to see you in person over the next few days at one of the events!

Cheers,

– Terrence
