JAX London 2011 Launch!
Day One at JAX London 2011
JAX London 2011 kicks off today with a full timetable of tutorials, panels, sessions, and a track dedicated to Agile. Attendees will be able to select from two full-day workshops, covering Java EE 6 and architecture. Ted Neward will look at why architecture is so important in the first place, before moving onto the various architectural considerations available to the developer, and concluding in a more interactive workshop style, where attendees will examine the performance and scalability ramifications of the different architectural options. Meanwhile, Dan Allen and Pete Muir will deep dive into the new Contexts and Dependency Injection programming model in Java EE 6, and show attendees how they can backport features of Java EE 7 and beyond, today.
In addition to the full-day workshops, the opening day of JAX London 2011 features a full Agile track, moderated by Roman Pichler. Co-author of 'Software Systems Architecture: Working With Stakeholders Using Viewpoints and Perspectives' Eoin Woods, will examine why software architects and agile teams sometimes find it difficult to work together, in his 'Agile Architecture – How Much is Enough?' session, and Geoff Watts and Paul Goddard will ask why a Scrum team is like a sport's team, in their 'The All-Star Scrum Team' talk. Be sure to check out our interviews with Eoin Woods and Geoff Watts, to get a taster of what you can expect from these sessions!
Tomorrow, JAX London will shift its focus to Java EE and OSGi, with tracks dedicated to both of these topics.
