RMOUG Training Days 2010/2011 and Canceled JavaOne Presentation

The Rocky Mountain Oracle Users Group (RMOUG) has made the slides from Training Days 2010 available online.  Unfortunately, I made many changes and additions to the slides from my two presentations after the date for submitting them to the conference and neglected to send the updated versions in to be posted.  However, there are numerous other presentations from other presenters available on the presentations summary page.

RMOUG has also sent out an e-mail message calling for abstracts for presenting at RMOUG Training Days 2011.  I snapped a screenshot from that e-mail message to post here:

As this image from the e-mail message indicates, abstracts are due September 22, 2010.  RMOUG Training Days 2011 will be held 15-17 February, 2010, at the Colorado Convention Center.  The call for abstracts states that the conference organizers are "looking for presentations that celebrate the best of the old and the best of the new and emerging technologies."

JavaOne 2010 Session Canceled

I was somewhat disappointed to learn via e-mail last week that a session I was looking forward to at JavaOne 2010 (and that was on my Schedule Builder) had been canceled.  Here is the most relevant snippet from the e-mail message I received:

Dear Oracle OpenWorld, JavaOne, and Oracle Develop Attendee,

We regret to inform you that the following session you are currently
enrolled in has been cancelled and removed from your schedule.

Session ID: S314089
Title: Java and HTML5: Boldly Combine
Date: 9/21/2010
Start Time: 9:30:00 AM

I was really looking forward to this presentation on using Java and HTML5 together.   The good news is that there are numerous sessions that interest me in every time slot.  Also, there are still sessions scheduled for JavaOne related to HTML5 and Java:
  • A Lean, RESTful Java Architecture for Building Rich HTML5 Web Applications (S314404)
  • The JSF 2.0 and HTML5 Version of  (S313804)
It is not surprising for a conference this size with this many presentations to have a few cancellations, but I always hope that it's presentations I was not going to attend anyway.  In this case, I was definitely planning on attending "Java and HTML5: Boldly Combine."
