Jfokus is an excellent conference, and the 2024 edition was no different from the previous ones. I have had the pleasure of being a fairly regular speaker there, and since they try to rotate the speakers a little I didn’t really expect to speak there this year. However, due to a last-minute opening, I got to present my Prepare for Jakarta EE – Performance and Developer Productivity talk.
I had almost a full room, and lots of great follow-up questions and comments after the talk. A note to myself is that beanies are more popular than socks in Stockholm when “bribing” the audience for questions. Even so, all the socks were gone in seconds when I left them up for grabs on the stage while packing my laptop and presentation clicker.
Due to the short heads-up for my acceptance and the fact that I already had made other plans for the remainder of the week, I had to leave the conference after the first day. One day at Jfokus is way better than none, so I am very satisfied with the trip.
