JAXConf 2013: Initial speaker lineup revealed

Chris Mayer

The third annual JAXconf is set to be the biggest yet, with talks from the likes of Stephen Chin, David Blevins and Carl Quinn.

There’s just over 100 days to go until ‘The Best in Java
Tech’ assemble for
JAXconf 2013 in
Santa Clara, California.

Preparations are underway to make the third US conference
(June 3rd-5th) the biggest
and best yet,
and just over a week ago, we announced an initial list of speakers,
featuring some world-renowned talent delivering sessions on Java,
JVM, Cloud, web frameworks and Big Data.

You can expect plenty more sessions, keynotes and workshops
(and the all-important community night news) to be announced within
the coming weeks.

Amongst the 23 speakers announced so far, we have a quartet
of JavaOne Rockstars:

IBM’s Chris Bailey will talk about
understanding your Java application’s
performance, whilst TomEE founder David Blevins will be discussing
all the latest features within the lightweight but powerful Tomcat

Nighthacker Stephen Chin will be showcasing Java and JavaFX
in combination with the Raspberry Pi and Stormpath’s Les Hazlewood
explains how to craft a beautiful REST JSON API.

(Whether we ask the four
Rockstars to form a band at JAXconf has yet to
be decided.

This year’s we’re embracing emerging projects and those who
are shaping the developer ecosystem. Netflix and Java Posse co-host
Carl Quinn will be exploring the cloud architecture
streaming giant.

Elsewhere, Tim Berglund will be providing a Git masterclass
in ‘Git from the Bits Up’, diving deeper into the recesses of the
Git Toolbox to
discover how to get the
most from the source control system

We’ve not left data out of the equation either, as Santa
Clara is a Hadoop hub. We’ve got cutting edge talks about the
latest technologies
such as YARN
and Zookeeper and,
crucially, how to harness value
from Apache Hadoop within your architecture.

We’ve also announced the first workshop, to be given by
Thoughtworker and Continuous Delivery pioneer Jez Humble, who will
be laying down the principles for optimising the delivery

That’s only a handful of what’s in store though – check out

and information on June’s big event. Hopefully, we’ll see you
