Interrupting our normal broadcast
JAXConf just over a week away!
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.
VP of development of the Java Platform Georges Saab will provide a glimpse into Java’s future, in “Making the Future of Java Together”.
Redmonk’s Stephen O’Grady will explain why Java has “become a bastion of stability in an otherwise volatile industry,” in “The Rise and Fall and Rise of Java”.
jQuery core team member Yehuda Katz tells just what is “The Future of the Client Side Web”
SAP’s Aiaz Kazi will explain how to be ready to tackle the big data, social and mobile revolution we find ourselves in, with his keynote The New Reality: the Role of PaaS in Technology Innovation
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!
