Today I realized that the schedule for the JavaOne 2009 is out (4 days starting from June 2nd). So I grabbed the data from this table and created a new menu entry in my TimeFinder application to import all the talks and get a feeling of how the overall timetable would look. If you build the latest version from source you can create your own schedule for JavaOne – contact me if you need assistance.
Update: Start TimeFinder here. This an alpha version where the JavaOne Import is included.
If I would be the host I would let the people pre-enrol them before the conference starts. So that the schedule could be optimized with TimeFinder. Then a lot more people could attend what they like.
I do not attend the conference (although I would like) but this could be my schedule (a lot of conflicts, uhm):
Another cool thing about TimeFinder is that you can see easily the timetable of a lot persons or rooms. E.g. in the JavaOne example you can see which other talks one speaker has – e.g. Sean Brydon from Sun Microsystems, Inc. has the following timetable:
Update: I really forgot to publish the javaOne ‘overview’ ;-):
