Public Service Announcement: JAX London agenda filling up!


The biggest names in development will congregate in London this October for sessions, keynote and workshops on the best in Java tech.

Over the past six months, we’ve been scouring the
globe for some of the brightest talent for the event on October
28-30 and we’ve finally managed to fit them all into a
fully-stocked three
day timetable.
 Just about.

After a tough selection process (which saw more
submissions than any other event in JAX London history), we welcome
48 names and counting to the event. There’s some familiar faces,
including the JAX London veterans, as we politely refer to them.
People like Oracle’s Arun Gupta and Simon Ritter, and ThoughtWorks’
Neal Ford will return to present sessions on important Java
developments, JVM languages and software methodologies.

But we’re also keen to open the stage to new speakers
and projects. Tim Fox will shows us what’s new in the JVM’s answer
to node.js, vert.x while Oracle’s Marcus Lagergren will shows us
all the changes put into the JVM to welcome newer languages.

Back by popular demand, we’ve also got two tracks
dedicated to Big Data Con London. Last year’s sessions were amongst
the most attended so naturally, we’ve it made it bigger and
stronger. We’ve got experts from Soundcloud and Channel 4, as well
as Cloudant’s experiences at CERN to discuss data in practice, as
well as a focus on some new processing and data storage projects
and techniques ahead of Hadoop 2.0.

Our old friends from the London Java
 will also be making their annual JAX London
sojourn. In no particular order, Martijn Verburg, Trisha Gee, John
Stevenson, Richard Warburton, John Oliver, Andy Piper and Simon
Maple will all be appearing to deliver sessions.

We’ve only scratched the surface here, so why not
check out the full lineup or our website.

We’ve revealed half of our keynote lineup, with two
big names in waiting. The incomparable James Governor will return
to the conference after a two-year absence. The RedMonk co-founder
will tell us all why Java got its mojo back. After a successful
JAXConf debut, Typesafe’s Jamie Allen will explain to us how to get
the most out of Project Lambda – coming to Java 8 in March 2014. If
you’ve never experienced closures, Jamie has you covered.

Monday 28th
is our workshop day
, with 8 fantastic workshops encompassing
the entire spectrum of development. Hadoop, OpenShift, low latency
and concurrency in Java, continuous delivery, Gradle and MongoDB,
it’s a heady mix of technical know-how you can’t do without.

For those of you who won’t be able to make the event
(you better have a good reason), the JAXenter team will be
providing coverage from the event, both on the site and on
Twitter @JAXenterCOM. We’ll also be
recording some sessions which will appear in the aftermath. Sure,
it’s not as good as actually being at JAX London, being able to
chew the fat with some of Europe’s best software practitioners, but
it’s as close as you can get.

Over the next few weeks, we’ll also be meeting the
keynoters in short interviews, so keep your eyes peeled for those.
If all this is sounding too good to miss, it’s not too late to snap
up tickets
. Hope to see you there!
