Developer Week ’24

Developer Week is a four-day conference that takes place in Nuremberg, Germany. As the name implies, it is a developer conference where Java is a track among the other track topics. I spoke at the conference for the first time in 2017, and it feels like the Java track has increased in size since then even if it is still a small part of the conference. Anyway, it is very useful to be present at these non-100%-Java conferences as well. As Brian pointed out, they are coping with the same problems and challenges as the Java community. Talking about Brian, here we are as we are following Jonathan‘s presentation.

Jonathan brought his daughter with him on this trip, and she go the task of evaluating the various speakers’ presentation skills. It will be interesting to see how well I perform on stage in the eyes of a 14-year-old girl. Hopefully, my bribe in the form of some exclusive Jakarta EE swag will improve my evaluation.

My talk From Spring Boot 2 to Spring Boot 3 with Java 22 and Jakarta EE went well. I even demoed Jakarta Data at the end of the talk.

Before the conference day, I went for a morning run around Nürnberg. there is a nice walk/bike path on the outside of the old city walls that is perfect for running.
