Fall is here and we are gearing up to head to San Francisco for Oracle OpenWorld, October 1–5. However, this year Red Pill Analytics, an analytics consulting firm, will also be participating in JavaOne, October 1–5. So what is JavaOne and why are we there?

Let’s start by pointing out that Stewart Bryson, one of the co-founders of Red Pill Analytics, has roots in development. It’s no wonder that he is still drawn to the developer scene. If you are a developer in any way, you’ll want to be at JavaOne.

Compared to it’s colocated event, Oracle OpenWorld, JavaOne is a much smaller conference. The topics and focus are more for a developer audience and as you can imagine, is centered on Java, but there are other interesting sessions on general development including DevOps and Apache Kafka. The weekly content includes over 300 regular sessions, tutorials, Birds-of-a-Feather sessions, and hands-on labs. The whole conference is taking place in Moscone West this year, keeping it close to the Oracle OpenWorld action. You’ll also find great opportunities for networking with an amazing Exhibit Hall and evening events.

When you look over the website, it can be overwhelming. Here are some cool things happening at JavaOne that we think you should care about.


JavaOne for Kids

Saturday, October 1

Kicking off JavaOne is JavaOne4Kids, an event exposing 500 kids to the fun of coding including Minecraft, Python, and SQL. This is an unique event that offers kids the opportunity to learn about technology in a new and exciting way. We all know that kids absorb information faster then we do. Let’s catch them early and show them how interesting and exciting development can be.
Our very own Michelle Kolbe will be one of the volunteers. She is actively involved in Oracle Academy and other kids coding events. We cannot wait to hear more about the fun and cool things that happen onsite. Learn more about it here. https://www.oracle.com/javaone/javaone4kids.html

 


Free event: Oracle Code Event

Tuesday, October 3

Not sure if you can commit to an entire week of JavaOne? Then check out the Oracle Code Event. Tuesday night, The Oracle Code tour is opening the doors to San Francisco at JavaOne. This developer-run event is for developers! It includes 30 sessions and 3 Hands on labs, all for free. You also get access to the keynotes and the exhibit hall.


The Developer Lounge

Monday, October 2 — Wednesday, October 4

Do you want to see all the cool and innovative things you can do with code, including robots, beer, games, t-shirts and code? Need we say more? Make sure to check out the Bullet Time Photo Booth. Who doesn’t want to relive one of those slo-mo scenes from “The Matrix”? See what happens when 60 Raspberry Pi cameras take your picture. We’re afraid Stewart may never leave the Matrix exhibit.
