JavaOne 2004 and 2005 presentations free online

Last year at this time, I was considering just when to buy a one-year subscription to JavaOne online. If I timed it right, I figured, I could pay for one year and watch two years’ worth of JavaOne conference presentations. Well, I guess I wasn’t the only one paralyzed by indecision, because this year Sun has just plonked the presentations online for all to see–no charge!

Every presentation at JavaOne 2004 and 2005 can be viewed in full-motion video, complete with live transcription and synchronized presentation slides, or downloaded in PDF form. The Web tier presentations alone could keep you busy all day!

Whether motivated by a lack of developer interest in the paid subscriptions, or by a desire to promote next year’s conference, this is a great resource for those of us who are either too cash-strapped (like me) or too far away (also me) to attend the conference in person.

So why not take your phone off the hook, uncork a nice bottle of wine, and curl up with some cutting-edge Java presentations tonight? If anyone asks, I’ll say you had a hot date.

    Me too. Though I am still busy with the J2EE Programming with Passion course to even think about reading the JavaOne presentations, but can I still use your hot date excuse?
