Java Tsunami on the Thames

London prepares for a surge of developer brainpower during the Devoxx UK conference on Tuesday and Wednesday, March 26th and 27th. Meet & Greet, global Java community, and Hackergarten are nice add-ons. Don't miss it - Register today

The fun really starts on Monday evening with an attendee Meet & Greet where attendees can relax, grab a drink and something to eat and, of course, meet fellow attendees and the speakers. 

In addition to U.K speakers, many international guests are scheduled, notably from the US. Twenty-eight user groups from across Europe are attending too. A veritable army of experts will be on hand to share their expertise with Devoxx attendees.  

Hackergarten takes place during the conference. There's no time limit; participants can stay and code for as long as they want. Just bring a laptop and write a plugin, a tutorial, a small feature, or a bug fix for a project that interests you alongside several open-source experts willing to share their knowledge. The organizers of two community projects called Adopt-a-JSR and Adopt Open JDK will be there to explain how to contribute to the future Java releases. 

Java in the Internet of Things

In this video, I talk to Product Manager for Small Embedded Java Terrence Barr at Embedded World. He gave presentations that included the slide that said "Stop Reinventing the Plumbing." I asked him what that means:

Java already has the connectivity, manageability, interoperability, and back-end integration you need for apps, so you can concentrate on your area of expertise, your "value add" on top of that plumbing. Java -- saving the world, one developer, one sensor at a time. ;-)
