JEEConf 2012 Trip Report

Guest Author


600+ participants, 3 days, 4 concurrent tracks, 28 sessions, 3
workshops, 30+ speakers - a quick summary of href="http://jeeconf.com/">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 href="https://blogs.oracle.com/arungupta/entry/jax_rs_2_0_early">JAX-RS
2.0, href="https://blogs.oracle.com/arungupta/entry/jpa_2_1_early_draft">JPA
2.1, and Bean
Validation 1.1
. The slide deck is available.

I had the opportunity to spend some time with href="http://yakovfain.com/">Yakov Fain, href="http://java.net/website/java-champions/bios.html#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 href="http://jelastic.com/">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
