Going back to JavaOne

It’s been 4-year since my last annual pilgrimage to JavaOne. The last JavaOne I attended was in 2001 and I was very disappointed with the lack of technical content at the conference. The technical sessions had been turned into marketing fluff sessions with sales droids doing ‘technical’ presentation. After that, I skipped JavaOne and ended up attending BEA’s eWorld and No-Fluff-Just-Stuff sessions to get the really technical stuff I am looking for.

So it’s been 4-years and I figure it’s time to check out JavaOne again and see if things have gotten any better. I’m really excited with the breath of topics in the early session guide – Just hoping they live up to expectations. Besides, it’s really hard to complain when you get to spend a week in San Francisco .:-)
