Putting the pieces together, one by one
Location, location, location..
As always, JavaZone takes place at Oslo Spektrum in the heart of Oslo. If this doesn't tell you anything – don't worry, finding Oslo Spektrum won't be too hard. You can use use this Google Maps link to get directions from your current location to Oslo Spektrum, or use the travel planner with Oslo Spektrum as your destination for public transport. Oh, and if you're completely lost, don't be afraid to ask! Most norwegians are quite friendly.
Where do I stay?
There's plenty of hotels in the area surrounding the conference center. Searching for hotels close to "Oslo Central Station" is a good tip, and should give you a few alternatives to choose from.
Food and drinks
Learning makes you hungry, and we are of course well aware of this. This is why we have a constant stream of food throughout the whole day, prepared by professional chefs from The Flying Culinary Circus. Believe us, if there is one thing you will not be missing at JavaZone, it is food.
I don't speak norwegian…
Don't worry! About 60% of the talks are held in english, and the spoken language is specified in the program. So even if you don't "snakker norsk", you should still get plenty of learning out of the conference.
Day after day, hour after hour!

The JavaZone program
90 full presentations, 65 lightning talks and 12 workshops. In total, there will be almost 200 speakers ready to give you a lot of inspiration and plenty of new knowledge. Check out our full program to see all the details, and start to plan your conference days now.
The different formats
JavaZone has a few different presentation formats – full presentations, lightning talks and workshops. This means that you should have something nice to attend both when you just want a little teaser, and when you're in for the full package.
Lightning talks are at most 10 minutes long, and often try to give a quick introduction to a concept. This is a great way to get a sneak peek at something new.
Presentations at JavaZone have a length of 60 minutes, and should therefore give you a deeper understanding of a concept than lightning talks.
(2, 4 or 8 hours)
Full-blown learning session. This is where you go to get down and dirty with code. We'll have both full day workshops and shorter
4-hour and 2-hour sessions.
A brand new afterparty in Oslo Spektrum!
This year we are experimenting with our formula, and have a brand new afterparty concept in store for you. First of all, we're moving the party to Oslo Spektrum – bigger and better than ever! In cooperation with all our partners we'll make sure this will be the best IT-party you've ever been to.
After the first day of talks, we'll transform Room 1 to a cool concert hall. The expo area will also have plenty of space for mingling – the era of the crowded roof terrace is over! 2.500 happy people, quality music, food and drinks, plenty of opportunities to mingle and catch up with old friends. What's not to like?
What will I be listening to?
Rumor has it that these guys will show up sometime during the evening!
Thanks to all our partners!
We would not be able to create JavaZone without the help of all our amazing partners!
Be sure to give them a visit in the expo area.
