The 2015 JAX London program is LIVE!
The JAX London returns this October, bringing Java, JVM and enterprise professionals together in an event brimming with the most respected thinkers and brightest minds. Tickets are now available which include full access to Big Data Con London.
The JAX London is focused on looking at the bigger picture in terms of what innovations are happening throughout the JVM cosmos. A program jam-packed full of inspiring and experienced speakers, a pre-conference tutorial and workshop day precedes the conference proper, giving developers the opportunity to get stuck into projects with the experts.
With the event themes centred around the Java Platform, agility, developer practices and Big Data, attendees are sure to walk away with new ideas and exposure to new technologies that can only be found at a conference like this. Read on for the highlights!
Some highlights of the program
The keynote speaker for this year’s conference is Jeff Sussna, founder of technology consulting firm Ingineering.IT. His company helps enterprises and Software-as-a-Service companies adopt 21st-century IT tools and practices, with his keynote focusing on key principles of continuous design that organisations can use to conduct mutually beneficial conversations with their customers.
With nearly 25 years of IT experience, Sussna combines engineering expertise with the ability to bridge business, creative, and technical perspectives. He is a highly respected thought leader and writer, well known for his insights on topics such as Agile, DevOps, Service Design and cloud computing. His keynote will demonstrate how to unify design and operations in the workplace.
Some prominent IBM folks will also be joining us for the conference, including Chris Bailey, who’s the technical architect for runtime monitoring, diagnostics and support at the IBM Hursley Park Development Lab in the United Kingdom.
Sticking with IBM, Dr Holly Cummins is welcomed back to the JAX London fold with her session on Microservices. Dr Cummins is a senior software engineer with IBM WebSphere and a committer on the Apache Aries project. She’s spoken at a shedload of conferences and is sure to captivate attendees as she demonstrates writing, deploying – and managing – a polyglot microservices application using a pile of tiny computers, cables, and code.
Finally, resident Java aficionado and frequent tutorial rockstar on JAXenter Lukas Eder is on the bill to show you how many features you’re missing out on when you don’t do real SQL. Leading by example, Eder will show attendees how they can calculate running totals on medium-sized data sets with a bunch of functions on top of increasing performance. Woah.
