I'm very proud to announce that I will be speaking at JavaLand 2015 in about a month. I'm really looking forward to it as I wasn't able to participate last year and (according to the feedback I got from various sources) JavaLand is an awesome conference.
The title of my talk is BYOC - Bring Your Own Container. Basically it is about the concept of shipping the container with your application which allows you to create executable JARs that don't need to be deployed to an application server any more. This provides an improved developer experience like the one you get when building you application with Spring Boot or Dropwizard.
I will show a small open source project I created called Backset which is basically an implementation of this concept. The core idea is similar to projects like Spring Boot or Dropwizard but with one important advantage: You build your app using well known Java EE APIs like CDI, JPA, JSF, etc.
I'm also looking forward to the various other talks such as:
- Java EE 7 from an HTML5 Perspective: WebSocket, JSON, & JSF by Ed Burns
- Where Are We at with MVC in Java EE 8 by Manfred Riem
- Effective AsciiDoc: Best Practices for Writing Docs by Dan Allen
- Building CDI Extensions by Jason Porter
- HTTP 2.0 Comes to Java EE. What Servlet 4.0 Means For You by Ed Burns
- Docker für Java-Entwickler by Roland Huß
- Event Sourcing FTW by Jochen Mader
- And much much more..
So, what is your excuse for not joining us at JavaLand 2015? :)
