JavaOne: Day 0


I flew down from Seattle this morning to attend JavaOne. I’m currently in a lounge, where the wireless is working fine (though I expect the load tommorrow may kill it, as it did at some parts of TechEd).


It’s very strange to be at a Sun conference. A few random thoughts:



  1. The Java colors are a lot cooler than the Visual Studio ones.

  2. Being able to pick up your badge through a barcode reader in your hotel is cool.

  3. Not having a quick reference guide or a decent map is a big disadvantage.

  4. Most of us know what a “Hackers Lounge“ is for, but I’m not sure that all the press will have the same understanding.

I’ll be writing more tommorrow.
