The Java industry’s great and good will assemble in Santa Clara in just nine days – and it’ll cost you nothing to join them!

We interrupt our normal broadcasting to bring
to you an important bulletin. In just nine short days, our sister
conference on US shores,
JAXConf,
will return to Santa Clara on June 3-5.

It’s fair to say that we’re quite excited about
the event. Your humble writer has been part of the judging panel
for sessions this year and, let me tell you, it’s not been easy
trying to squeeze in as much high quality content as possible in
this enterprise-class conference. Not to mention, fitting in an
array of fantastic speakers, each an expert in their given field.
We don’t usually like to boast, but it would be wrong not to shout
about the high calibre here.

Oh, did we mention that every one of the 40
sessions and four keynotes in JAXConf is
free to
attend
?

We’re bringing the movers and the shakers of
Java together too. We’ve done our best to put together an eclectic
mix of speakers to represent today’s modern software world. Some
are JAX regulars, others are fresh blood.

Here’s the highlight
reel:

  • Oracle Evangelist Arun
    Gupta
    will be talking about Java EE 7’s newest
    features, particular with HTML5 and Websockets in mind.

  • Githubber Tim Berglund
    dives into the deeper recesses of the Git Toolbox

  • Netflix are changing how we think about
    infrastructure.
    Carl Quinn will be
    explaining the intricacy of Netflix’s sprawling while

    Adrian Cole will be demonstrating a new
    piece of kit – the Denominator.

  • Nighthacker Stephen Chin
    will let us run riot on the Raspberry Pi with
    JavaFX

  • Hack NY’s Peter Bell
    tells us how to build the perfect mobile app.

That’s just a teaser: head over to the JAXConf
website to see
the full
cast
.

Meet the keynoters

Like any good festival, we need some heavyweight
headliners and we think we’ve managed to secure some (industry)
megastars, all with their keynotes offering insight into where
we’re heading.

Hopefully that’s whetted your appetite. We also have a
live recording of the excellent Java Posse podcast on Tuesday
lunchtime as well as other treats. Keep your eyes peeled on
Twitter for more
details surrounding our own coverage!

Don’t forget you can sign up to the conference
for free via the
JAXConf
website
.

See you there!
