JEEConf 2012 Trip Report




600+ participants, 3 days, 4 concurrent tracks, 28 sessions, 3 workshops, 30+ speakers - a quick summary of JEEConf 2012.

This is second year of the conference and they've grown >50% from last year. This is the only major Java conference in Ukraine and there is a huge demand for Java speakers in this region. Even though the conference started with a focus on enterprise Java but has diversified into broader Java ecosystem covering Play, Gradle, Hazelcast, Scala, Hadoop, Cassandra, and other topics.

I gave a talk on Java EE 7: Developing for the Cloud to about 400+ developers. I used the newly refreshed slide deck with tons of code samples from different technologies such as JAX-RS 2.0, JPA 2.1, and Bean Validation 1.1. The slide deck is available.




I had the opportunity to spend some time with Yakov Fain, a Java Champion, who gave two day-long workshops on Java EE 6 and JavaScript. I also spent some time with Ruslan, CEO of Jelastic and thanked them for their continued support of GlassFish. The local JUG is not active but I learned about Club of Anonymous Developers where geeks meet couple of times a month to talk about different technologies. If you live in the local region, then consider joining this group and learn/share your experience.

Thank you Nikolai and Alexsey for taking the lead on running a Java conference in Ukraine. I hope to be back next year!

Here are some pictures captured from the trip ...












I also managed to run in the streets of Ukraine:
