JAX London is back this October for a sixth outing, and we have to say, it’s shaping up to be the biggest (and probably greatest) event to date.

Over the course of this three day extravaganza, which now comes fortified with crunchy Big Data Con goodness, you can expect more of the same stimulating sessions and thought provoking keynotes that have become a trademark of JAX events around the world.

Taking place in the heart of the capital, JAX London will be heaving at the seams with elite industry speakers, tech gurus, and whizz kids from the startup scene. As ever, Java lies at the heart of this conference. And as such, we’re lucky enough to have some of the most passionate evangelists and ambassadors of the platform in attendance this week - all of whom you’re free to rub shoulders, network, have a drink, and generally hobnob with.

With the intersection of a new generation of web technologies and cloud based services, sophisticated architectural patterns for maximum flexibility and scalability, integration of Big Data technologies, and on the client side, the rise of powerful web apps and mobile post-PC devices, it’s a whole new world - and we want to give you the keys to unlock it.

On the keynote front, James Governor will be energising the event with a talk about how Java got its mojo back, and Dwight Merriman will enlighten us with a session on databases and agile development. By now you’ve probably heard a lot of things about Project Lambda in Java 8 - Typesafe’s Jamie Allen will be cutting to the chase and telling you how to make the most out of it when it lands next spring.

You can also expect to hear about Cloudant’s experiences at CERN, find out how to put your Java apps to sleep, and learn how to stop worrying and love distributed programming with Hazelcast. There will also be people like Oracle’s Arun Gupta and Simon Ritter, and ThoughtWorks’ Neal Ford presenting sessions on important Java developments, JVM languages and software methodologies.

And don’t miss out out on Monday’s dedicated workshop sessions, which will feature eight fantastic sessions encompassing the entire spectrum of development, with Hadoop, OpenShift, low latency and concurrency in Java, continuous delivery, Gradle and MongoDB all given the JAX London royal treatment.

Once you're all workshopped out, we urge you to make your way to BIRT 'n' Beer night on Monday 28th, where Eclipse OS BIRT Project founders Actuate will be joining forces with JAX London to offer developers a free tour of BIRT. Relax and enjoy as Actuate’s BI experts deliver a complimentary training session, complimented with a side of beer and pizza. Spaces are limited, so we advise you to reserve a spot now - and who knows, you might win one of ten Raspberry Pis, up for grabs for all registered attendees.

JAX events are renowned for their open, sociable atmosphere, and offer the perfect opportunity to get your burning questions answered, participate in discussions, debate, banter, and really engage in everything that the conference has to offer. We’ve brewed up a community night that’s absolutely fizzing with leading figures in the industry (including our friends Martijn Verburg, Trisha Gee, John Stevenson, Richard Warburton, John Oliver, Andy Piper, and Simon Maple), fun and games, and several gallons of beer (hurrah).

In addition to all that, we’ve got some superb technical presentations lined up, with enough tutorials, deeps dives and hands-on sessions to ensure that you’ll leave the event with your skills sharpened and knowledge fully up to date.
