If you were on the fence about attending JavaOne on September 19-23 this fall, maybe this will help you make up your mind. Oracle has doubled the normal JUG discount from $100 to $200 for this year. That is the good news. The bad news is that you will each need to individually request a personal discount code from Oracle. See this message on our community events message board for the particulars including link to one row spreadsheet that you must download, fill in, and email back to Oracle:
If you register before the early bird deadline of July 16th, the registration cost will only be $1395 with the JUG member discount. However, it may take up to two weeks for them to process requests for discount codes. So, you need to submit your discount code request before the end of June in order to get your code in time to register before July 16th.
It is definitely going to be different this year, but, Oracle goes all out for these annual events. So, I don't think that anyone who signs up will be disappointed. Also, they have what the call User Group Sunday as the first day of the event. Java Champions and JUG Leaders from all over the world will be here that day and we have two rooms for community meetings reserved just for us. I'll be posting more about that during the weeks leading up to JavaOne.
Any questions about this discount or JavaOne in general can be posted as replies to the message board message linked to above. Thanks!
That's All Folks, Van
