My goodness, 691 speakers and 380 session all packed in 4 conference days. It’s huge, it’s massive and it’s almost impossible to pick out sessions to visit. It’s simply too much! Way too much. And even Sun’s schedule builder, an online session scheduler, won’t help. Just like a little kid in a toy store I want to play with everything!

Mission impossible. So to get organized I gave myself a theme to fill in: productivity. And within that theme I picked to major hotspots: tooling and scripting. In my very humble opinion tools can manage the overwhelming complex world we’re programming in and scripting will make the actual programming task more comfortable. Beside this theme I picked a couple of sessions that sounded just fun or had a speaker who attracted me.

So, here’s my list (exluding the general sessions and the evening Birth of Feather sessions) in order of appearance. Upfront I have no idea if I’m actually able to follow the schedule but at least it is a good intention.

  • TS-4311, Inside Eclipse calisto
  • TS-4386, Twelve reasons to use Sun Java Studio Creator IDE
  • TS-5033, IntelliJ IDEA: Integrated Team Environment
  • TS-3361, Java EE 5 Platform: Even easier with tools
  • TS-1615, Java EE 5 Blueprints for AJAX-Enabled Web 2.0 Applications
  • TS-3376, Java technology techniques for developing AJAX applications
  • TS-3273, Groovy = Java Technology + Ruby + Python for the JVM
  • TS-3059, jRuby, Bringing Ruby to the JVM Software
  • TS-3886, Dynamically typed languages on the Java Platform
  • TS-3187, Advanced JSF Custom components development
  • TS-1660, Twelve Java Technology security traps and how to avoid them
  • TS-5397, The top-10 ways to botch a J2EE based application
  • TS-1382, Scripting in Java SE 6 (Codename Mustang)
  • TS-3987, Crazy Talk: Examining why Agile software development works

The only session I really would have liked to attend but didn’t fit into my schedule was the session about writing a Sony Playstation emulator in Java. And the session about the building of a highly dynamic battlefield infrastructure. And the session about the robotic dune buddy called Tommy. And the session about ……
