No One Ever Complains of Not Having Enough to Do at JavaOne

The Zone

Spend some time chilling out in the developer-focused neighborhood we've created for JavaOne attendees, the Zone. At the heart of the Zone is the Taylor Street Café between Ellis and O'Farrell streets—it's a block-long playground, lounge and hang space. When not in sessions, you can unplug (yourself) and recharge (your devices) all at the same time in smaller pocket lounges at the Hilton San Francisco Union Square, Hotel Nikko, and Parc 55 Wyndham. Whether you're looking for some down time or a place to meet friends and colleagues, you'll find the right place in the Zone.
