Java Champions at JavaOne 2014

Isn't it that time of the year again? Booking hotels and travels. Most of my fellow Java Champions (and former ACE Director fellows) are doing some kind of preparation for JavaOne and Oracle OpenWorld these days. Only a few more weeks to go and the content catalog is published. So I thought I might also spend an hour to look at good content. Let's start with talks given by Java Champions.


The Java Champions are an exclusive group of passionate Java technology and community leaders who are community-nominated and selected under a project sponsored by Oracle. Java Champions get the opportunity to provide feedback, ideas, and direction that will help Oracle grow the Java Platform. This interchange may be in the form of technical discussions and/or community-building activities with Oracle's Java Development and Developer Program teams.
