Views From a Speaker at JDD 2013

JDD 2013

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!

JavaOne 2013 – It’s a Wrap

I have to admint that my last post about JavaOne was just a trick to get a free t-shirt from the OTN booth.

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.

JavaOne 2013

Having missed out on the last couple of JavaOne conferences, I am extremely happy that I will be attending this year. And not only as an attendant, but as a speaker.

More details on my talk will follow. For now, make sure you register for the conference.
