The Java Road Trip

June 04, 2010

Oracle is launching what they're calling the Java Road trip on Monday, June 14th, in New York City. I'll be there talking about Java and JavaFX and signing copies of my books. Go to for more information on this. In summary, Oracle is launching this road trip to demonstrate to you first hand just how committed they are to Java and JavaFX, and their futures with developers.

After New York City, the road trip will move to 19 other cities including Philadelphia, Washington DC, Charlottesville, Atlanta, Memphis, New Orleans, Austin, Houston, Denver, Salt Lake City, Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, Santa Clara, and more. It's going to be a summer of coast-to-coast Java fun with talks from Oracle's Java developers and managers, demonstrations of new software and tools, and the unveiling of new Java technologies.

For instance, come see first-hand demonstrations on brand-new technologies such as JavaFX TV, the JavaFX Authoring tool, Java in the real-time space, embedded Java VM software, and products that you may not have been aware were built on Java (such as the Kindle).

Hopefully I'll see you there!
