Earlier this week, my talk on Spring 4, Java EE 7 or Both was accepted and added to the program for JEEConf. Even with the current situation in Ukraine, I am looking very much forward to going there. We should never let politics interfere with our knowledge sharing and community activities. See you there!
I think time is due for a small update post. Right now I am preparing code samples and slides for the upcoming talks this winter:
- Javaforum, Gothenburg – Spring 4, Java EE 7 or Both?
- Software 2014, Oslo – Organizing for Continuous Delivery
- JavaLand 2014, Brühl – Spring 4, Java EE 7 or Both? and Implementing Batch Processing in Java EE 7
My profile at Lanyrd is also kept up-to-date.
I have added a new page, Speaker Bio, that summarizes my speaker appearances. Hopefully it is complete and I will do my best to keep it updated.
I have just come home after spending three amazing days in Krakow as one of the speakers at the Java Developer Days Conference there. The organizers of this conference takes well care of their speakers and you feel welcome all the time. And I am sure the attendees feel the same.
Apart from my talk, my greatest achievement at the conference was to win a a signed copy of Practical API Design by implementing a simple application using bck2brwser. My contribution: Duke2Brwser. Hope this may inspire you to try it out. Just activate the HTML/Java Project Support plugin in NetBeans and go ahead!
This was the first time I attended since Oracle took over the show from Sun and they are doing a great job at it. The quality of the sessions were excellent and the organizers did a great job in making everything go smoothly.
This year’s JavaOne was special to me since I was attending the conference as a speaker. Some pictures and stats of my session below.
Pre-registered Attendees (249 people)
Session Attendence (170 people)
Survey Results (11 surveys)
– 73% felt that the session increased their knowledge of the subject
– Overall technical value of session 4.0 (max 5.0)
It’s my first time at JavaOne since Oracle took over the show. It is definitely smaller than before, but still as vibrant as it used to be. The good old JavaOne feeling is still there and this year the Keynote was back at Moscone.

The content catalog for JavaOne is available. The abstract for my presentation, From the Spring Framework to Java EE 7 (CON3598) can be found there together with more than 500 other sessions. Still haven’t registered?
