TheServerSide got a chance to talk to hit up Jonathan Lindo of Replay Solutions about being an exhibitor at JavaOne, and what JavaOne attendees can do to get the most out of JavaOne and OracleWorld 2010.
Is this your first time at JavaOne?
This is our second appearance. We're anxious to see how the new format plays out.
Are you presenting or running an exhibit?
This year we have a booth on the Expo floor, and we're excited to be running private demo presentations for folks throughout the event.
Why should someone visit you?
Anyone who works for a company building Java EE applications owes it to themselves to see how the latest Java virtualization technology can save their bacon when things go wrong and the datacenter is on fire, or your customers are down. We solve these problems and will be showing Java recording technology that has never been seen before.
What have you been looking forward to the most?
Connecting with our great customers and seeing old friends. Also seeing some of the new innovations in our space.
Any advice for first timers at JavaOne?
Don't miss the keynotes. They're early, but usually well worth it. Also make sure to jump into a BOF or two. Some of the best info is shared here, and it might be the best hour you spend at the show.
Any advice for people returning to JavaOne?
Remember it's now at the Hilton near Union Square this year, not the Moscone center!
Where's the most fun to be had at JavaOne?
Probably Treasure Island for the Oracle Appreciation Event this year... C'mon, it's the Black Eyed Peas!
Any advice to people visiting San Fran for the first time?
The quintessential San Francisco experience must include the Golden Gate bridge. I recommend you head down to Pier 39 Fisherman's Wharf and rent a bike. You can cycle across the bridge, ride down to Sausalito, enjoy a drink on the water, then jump on a ferry back to Pier 39 with your bike past Alcatraz. It's brilliant.
