If you’re heading to San Francisco later this month for JavaOne and are interested in learning about building social applications for your enterprise, you should plan to check out the Social Developer Program, organized and hosted by Roland Smart (@rsmartx) who recently joined Oracle after the Involver acquisition.
The program runs from 10 AM to 3:30 PM on Tuesday, October 2 at the San Francisco Hilton and features speakers from Oracle, Bit.ly, Facebook, LinkedIn, and Sociable Labs. The focus is on the emergence of social within the enterprise and ends with a hackathon.
That last bit got your attention? Thought it might. Here’s the skinny:
In this session the staff of the Oracle Social Developer Lab will present some social development tools that make integrating social functionality into your apps easier to achieve. This session kicks off a week-long hack to build an application using OSDL code. A winner will be selected and profiled in Java Magazine.
I don’t have any more details on the prize, which is sure to be epic, so you’ll just have to attend the program. In the meantime, check out their Facebook page for more information.
See you in San Francisco.
