Attendees at the 2004 JavaOne conference described their vision of the future of Java on a whiteboard.
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.
During the 2008 conference, 67 Moscone Center staff members and three attendees were sickened by an outbreak of norovirus.
After the 2010 acquisition of Sun by Oracle Corporation, the conference has been held concurrently with Oracle OpenWorld. Rather than being located in Moscone Center, the conference is now hosted at hotels on nearby Mason Street. In some years, one block of Mason was closed and covered with a tent, which formed part of the conference venue.
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.

Patrick Naughton (born in 1965) is an American software developer, best known as being one of the original creators of the Java programming language.
As a Sun engineer, Patrick Naughton had become increasingly frustrated with the state of Sun's C++ and C APIs (application programming interfaces) and tools. While considering moving to NeXT, Naughton was offered a chance to work on new technology and thus the Stealth Project was started.
The Stealth Project was soon renamed to the Green Project with James Gosling and Mike Sheridan joining Naughton. Together with other engineers, they began work in a small office on Sand Hill Road in Menlo Park, California. They were attempting to develop a new technology for programming next generation smart appliances, which Sun expected to be a major new opportunity.
In June and July 1994, after three days of brainstorming with John Gage, the Director of Science for Sun, James Gosling, Bill Joy, Naughton, Wayne Rosing, and Eric Schmidt, the team re-targeted the platform for the World Wide Web. They felt that with the advent of the first graphical web browser, Mosaic, the Internet was on its way to evolving into the same highly interactive medium that they had envisioned for cable TV. As a prototype, Naughton wrote a small browser, WebRunner, later renamed HotJava.
