The biggest Java conference in Europe is taking place in Antwerp, Belgium from November 11 to 15, 2013. The conference is designed by developers for developers and attracts renowned international speakers.
The review committee looks for passionate speakers who are technically knowledgeable and not afraid to speak in front of a full room of Devoxxians.
The speakers can increase CFP acceptance rate by submitting one or more talks for Tools in Action, Quickie, BOF, University session, Conference and Hands On Labs sessions.
Julien Ponge, who, in addition to being a Java developer and a professor, also writes technical articles for both otn/java and Java Magazine, has created Golo, a simple, dynamic, weakly-typed open source language that favors the explicit over the implicit. Developers can pick it up in a manner of hours, not days. Responses to its recent release at Devoxx have been favorable.
Built from day 1 with invokedynamic, and currently in beta, Golo takes advantage of the latest advances of the JVM. It is also a showcase on how to build a language runtime with invokedynamic.
The Golo Programming Guide is located here.
Julien is an Associate Professor (Maître de Conférences) in Computer Science and Engineering at INSA-Lyon in France, plus an R&D Computer Scientist at the CITI / INRIA laboratory. Learn more about him here.
