JavaOne 2010: So Many Interesting Sessions, So Few Time Slots

JavaOne 2010 has so many presentations that I want to see that even my current alternatives list ("My Interests" in Schedule Builder) is full of presentations that sound compelling.  The following presentations are currently in "My Interests" because I have (as of today) selected another presentation at the same time to "Enroll" in.  I think this list speaks for itself.  Of course, it is likely that I will change my mind several times between now and JavaOne and it's almost certain that I'll attend some of these.  For now, though, these are the presentations I wish I could attend, but currently think I'll have to miss because there's something else also scheduled at the same time.

The first acronyms listed on each line in square braces have the following meanings: BOF (Birds of a Feather), CS (Conference Session), ESS (Executive Solution Session), GS (General Session), HOL (Hands-On Lab), KEY (Keynotes Session), and PAN (Panel).

The alternative sessions listed above are the result of my first run-through with the Schedule Builder and that list does not even include potential OracleDevelop presentations of interest related to subjects such as Oracle Fusion, JDeveloper, Java in the Oracle Database, Oracle ADF, etc.

There are so many interesting-sounding presentations to choose from at JavaOne 2010 that it is very difficult to decide on which to attend.
