Java Champions at JavaOne 2012


Everybody is doing some kind of preparation for JavaOne and Oracle OpenWorld these days already. Only a few more weeks to go and you should have your accommodation ready by now. Next on my schedule for conference preparation is to look for good content. Why not start with the talks from the most exclusive group of passionate Java technology lovers?

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. According to their bio page, there are 127 active JCs (plus one posthumous and four alumni).
