Just back from Brazil and no time to catch my breath … so much happening:

  • JavaOne Latin America was a blast – so much enthusiasm in the developer community! Check out some of the videos and podcasts, including the JavaOne Community Keynote, OTN interviews with a variety of Java luminaries, as well as the Java Spotlight Podcast #60: JavaOne Latin America: Videos and Podcasts
  • Java 7u2 has been released, featuring an updated VM, support for Oracle Solaris 11, support for Firefox 5 and later, and security fixes. Also, JavaFX 2.0.2 is now included with Java SE to make developing and running JavaFX applications even easier: Java SE 7u2 Release Notes, JavaFX 2.0.2 Release Notes
  • Aligning with mainline JDK development, Java SE Embedded 7u2 has been released as well. This release includes new ports to Linux on PPC and performance improvements on ARM systems by 20-40%. Also, Oracle intends to port JavaFX to Linux on ARM in order to support a broad range of platforms from mid-range embedded all the way to desktops: Henrik’s blog on the Java SE Embedded 7u2 release.
  • Lots of activity around JavaFX as well – interest is really taking off. Point in case: A new project, eFX, has been started on aiming to create a generic application framework for JavaFX 2.0 based on the NetBeans platform: Geertjan’s blog on eFX
  • Finally, OTN put together a list of their “Most Popular Tech Articles of 2011”. Java topics, from Java SE 7 and 8 features, Java EE 6, JSF, and JavaFX dominate the list. Have a look: Our Most Popular Tech Articles of 2011

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!
