  • Be sure to check here regularly for updates to the show guide.

Yesterday’s part 1 was about the overall JavaOne focus and organization, the high-level schedule, infrastructure, as well as content tracks and the content catalog.

Today’s part 2 is my (subjective) list of content and noteworthy stuff I’d like bring to your attention (and attend myself, if I get a chance among all the other things that are going on that week … ūüėČ

First, I’m the author and speaker of these two sessions:

  • Getting Started with Embedded Java: Sense, Control, Store, Connect (24605) (Mon, 5:00 pm, HOL)

In this Hands-On-Lab we’ll be building a simple but complete embedded Java solution called EnviroTracker. We’ll walk through all the steps from hooking up the hardware, installing the necessary software, interfacing with I/O, to creating, deploying, and testing our application. I know the space for this lab is filling up fast, so be sure to sign up soon.

  • Top 10 Free Tools and Libraries for Building Better Java ME Applications (24860) (Tue, 4:30 pm, BOF)

This is based on the idea that there are a number of free tools and libraries floating around that can help you build Java ME apps better and faster, but many developers aren’t familiar with them. So let’s list some of the ones we’ve been using and I’m sure you’ll be able to add some of your own favorites.
