JavaOne is an annual conference inaugurated in 1996 by Sun Microsystems to discuss Java technologies, primarily among Java developers. JavaOne is held in San Francisco, California typically running from Monday to Thursday. Technical sessions on a variety of topics are held during the day. In the evening, Birds of a Feather (BOF) sessions are held. BOF sessions allow people to focus on a particular aspect of Java technology.
Access to the technical sessions, keynote presentations, exhibits and BOF sessions requires a conference pass, which usually costs between $1795 to $1995 USD.
In 1999, the conference played host to an event called the Hackathon, a challenge set by John Gage. Attendees were to write a program in Java for the new Palm V using the infrared port to communicate with other Palm users and register the device on the Internet.
JavaOne 2010, the first conference to be run after the acquisition of Sun by Oracle Corporation, was held September 19–23, concurrently with Oracle OpenWorld. This was the first year that the conference was not held at Moscone Center, instead hosted at three hotels on nearby Mason Street, one block of which was closed and covered with a tent, which formed part of the conference venue. JavaOne 2011 was held in the same venue configuration as in 2010, and so was JavaOne 2012, from September 30 to October 4.
Each year at the conference there is a hardware device highlighted, typically made available to attendees before it is sold to the general public, or at a steep discount.
From 2007 to 2009, an associated one-day event, CommunityOne, was held, for the broader free and open-source developer community.
In 2009, CommunityOne expanded to New York City (CommunityOne East, March 18–19) and to Oslo, Norway (CommunityOne North, April 15). The third annual CommunityOne in San Francisco took place from June 1–3, 2009, at Moscone Center.
CommunityOne was discontinued after the acquisition of Sun by Oracle.
