This is the photo visitation of my blog around the JavaOne 2015 conference, which is the twentieth edition.


The audience is listening. When you speak at JavaOne, this will be your audience. So come strong, be prepared and primed ready to deliver your talk to these people!


Bruno! Is our Java Mascot, going to cut the cake or not? In case you are wondering, the puppet is a Brazilian finch called Juggy, named after the community of Java User Groups.


View from the Cityscape Hilton Tower level 45


The Nullpointer sisters (L) Susan and (R) Alison


Now it is my turn to cut the cake at the JCP party. I didn’t actually cut it, though.


The cake is in all of its splendour


When you are JavaOne speaker, you must make time for your attendees to ask pertinent questions about session, or you can simply swap business cards!


Null pointers performing at Duke’s cafe on the closed off Mason Street next to the Hilton hotel. Ed Burns was singing with Alison backing up. I’m took a timeout, because I didn’t know the song well enough.




We have to give the Oracle Java executives our full support: (L) George Saab and (R) Sharat Chandler. Without them we probably would not have a JavaOne conference to attend.



More Nullpointer goodness: (L) Frank Greco, (C) Freddy Guime and (R) Ed Burns


Alison sings


(L) Zoran Severnac, (C) Susan and (R) Alision and I still taking a break from this song.


Give the drummer some! Cesar is holding the rhythm sticks in style.


The whole Null Pointer band – a job well done after Thursday community keynote. From left to right: Ed, Zoran, me, Susan, Cesar, Mattias Karlson, Freddy, Hiroshi Ito and kneeling down is Frank Greco …. – Apologies to Alison


JavaOne 4 Kids of the future. Here is inspiration that you can make it in the Java ecosystem.


Community key note






What happens behind the scenes, backstage, at a massive JavaOne keynote in the Moscone Center?



Well you get to me Duke, the Java mascot, of course!


Let’s do it all again, next year, lads!


It’s time to toss or propel the JavaOne tee-shirts from the stage with James Gosling.


Cedric Champeau’s Groovy DSL in 2016 technical session


At the Tomitribe residence, who is holding court or setting up now?


My first book, Java EE 7 Developer Handbook was still selling in the conference bookstore.



Ed Burn’s 16 years of JavaOne conferences from year 2000 to 2015. Terrific!


As only Oracle can,!


San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge, I have to love it!


I think that I reached the limit for a photo blog post entry! Enjoy! See you next year #JavaOne2016!


+PP+ 🙂
