Summing up 2016…

…and looking forward to 2017!

2016 was a pretty eventful and great year for me personally. I had the opportunity to speak at a number of conferences including Jfokus, JavaLand, GIDS, CybercomDev, jPrime, Devoxx UK, JavaDay Minsk, JavaOne, JavaDay Kiev, Devoxx MA, Øredev. Links to talks and videos for most of these talks can be found on my Speaker Bio page.

I will continue speaking at conferences and events throughout 2017 as well. First up are Snowcamp.io, Devnexus, jDays, JavaLand, Riga Dev Days, DevDays Vilnius. And I still have some CFPs to submit talks to…

I also took over as JUG leader of Javaforum, the Java User Group in Malmö, and we had four meetings during 2016. The goal for 2017 is to continue with one meeting each quarter.

At the end of the year I won one of the associate seats in the Executive Committee of the Java Community Process. I am really looking forward to starting this work (I am actually going to London for our first face-to-face meeting tomorrow…).

If I should pick one single thing as the highlight of 2016, it would be the accepted to join the Java Champions. It was a surprise and an honor to be handed the Java Champions jacket from Arun Gupta at the closing Keynote of Devoxx UK.

MVC 1.0 Generator

The JPA Modeler plugin for NetBeans provides visual support for creating, designing and editing entity relationship models. It also provides Java code generation and new for version 1.5.5 is that it provides support for generating MVC 1.0 applications.

Check out MVC 1.0 Generator Tutorial to see how it works.

Kudos to Gaurav Gupta (@jGauravGupta) for this awesome tool! Another proof that NetBeans is the IDE for developing Java EE applications!

NetBeans Dream Team

It is great to start 2016 with the announcement that I have been included in the NetBeans Dream Team!

I always try to be as objective and unbiased as possible when writing and talking about tools and technologies, but I guess it has been pretty obvious that NetBeans is my favorite IDE and in my opinion the best IDE for Java EE development. Being a member of the Dream Team will enable me to contribute even more to make this great tool even greater.

More information about the NetBeans Dream Team can be found on the wiki.

JavaOne is all about Community

JavaOne 2015 is a wrap!

2015-10-30 10.10.00

Five days packed with technical sessions, discussions, community building…It is such a blast!

I have heard more than once that this conference is more about the people than the technology. And I totally agree with that.

Since I am pretty heavy involved in the Java Community Process (JCP), many of my activities this year (as last year) was connected to this. I was interviewed on NightHacking about the JCP in general as well as the JSRs I am on the expert group of (368, 371 and 375). I also managed to get in a word or two about Snoop with input from Arun Gupta.

In addition to my planned sessions, CON1615Meet Snoop – a Discovery Service for Java EE and BOF3666How would you like to improve the Java EE Security API, I was also on stage at the CON4176: Introduction to MVC 1.0 (JSR 371).

Thursday morning we had a very productive Face-to-Face meeting in the JMS 2.1 Expert Group (JSR 368). The minutes from this meeting can be found here.

Last, but not least, thanks to Tomitribe for gathering together the #usualsuspects and making sure everyone is having a good time.

Meet Snoop @ JavaOne

JavaOne in San Francisco is less than a month away. If you have not registered yet, do so now!

So far so good! Then you will need to add sessions you want to attend to to your personal schedule. Make sure you don’t wait until the last moment. The most popular sessions tend to fill up pretty fast.

My presentation Meet Snoop – a Discovery Service for Java EE may be can be found in the Schedule Builder by searching for CON1615. Add it to your schedule so that you are sure to get a seat. It may fill up…

Tech Tip – Running Glassfish Nightly Builds in NetBeans

If you have tried adding a recent nightly build of GlassFish 4.1 to the server configurations in NetBeans, you may have come across the following problem:

glassfish-netbeans-error

The solution is as follows:

This deficiency of the NetBeans server plugin is covered by Bug #250165

2014 Conferences

I know it is a bit early to sum up the year in November, but since I have not planned any more conference talks this year I think I will do it anyway. As the picture shows I have been pretty active this year.

 

2014-11-08 12.15.31

I have been presenting at conferences in Norway (Software 2014), Sweden (Javaforum, Øredev), Germany (Javaland), Poland (JDD), Ukraine (JEEConf, JavaDayKiev) and Morocco (JMaghreb). In addition to my speaker appearances, I was also able to attend JavaOne in San Francisco where I got to meet a lot of people in the JCP and ended up being selected to the Expert Group for JSR 371 – MVC 1.0.

I hope to continue speaking at a lot of conferences next year as well. Talks have already been accepted by jDays and Javaland, so it looks promising.

A Little Status Update

My schedule for the upcoming months are beginning to fill up as a result of submitting talks to a lot of CFPs during summer. The scheduled talks so far are:

There are still some room, so if you are organizing a conference and need talks to fill up, feel free to contact me. My profile on Lanyrd is kept updated at all time.

But first of all I am going to JavaOne! This year as an attendee, so it is all about networking, community building and interesting technical sessions and keynotes.
