The best in Java tech

JAXConf 2013: Initial speaker lineup revealed

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 server.

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 of the 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 pipeline.

That’s only a handful of what’s in store though - check out the JAXconf website to find out more about the speakers and information on June’s big event. Hopefully, we’ll see you there.
