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.
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.
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.
…with me in it!
I have attended every Øredev conference so far and this year, the 10 year anniversary edition, I will be attending as a speaker.
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 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!
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.
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)
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?
