Wow! I just realised that the last time I wrote a blog entry was in the Summer, early July. Now it is a September, I am writing this time at JavaOne 2014 in San Francisco. The delay is blamed to my life a contractor. I arrived in California on Saturday and went to the introduction keynote on Sunday. We were pleasantly surprised when the video started playing on the big screen. Here we went then. I was very honoured to be feature in the promotional music video. This two minutes of dance auto-tuned hilarity, frivolity and pleasant nonsense that takes an amusing light-hearted twist on the learnings of a professional developer and the Java community. A lot of the content in the video was crafted from the Devoxx UK conference and driven by the Oracle Technology News team. It features several Java Champions, JUG leader and many notable Oracle folks like Stephen Chin.
Thanks for the OTN and here is the Welcome to JavaOne Conference 2014 OPEN Music Video:
Have a few laughs, have fun, grab those fluorescent party flares and bust a move!
PS: The truth is, indeed, stranger than fiction. Through a few tears and struggles from everyone, it proves that Java is worth it.
