JavaOne 2015 Java EE Track Committee: Johan Vos

Guest Blogger: Reza Rahman

This is the third in a series of interviews for you to meet some of the committee members for the JavaOne 2015 Java EE track. The committee plays the most important part in determining the content for JavaOne. These good folks really deserve recognition as most of them devote many hours of their time helping move JavaOne forward, often as volunteers. If JavaOne matters to you, these are folks you should know about.

This interview is with Johan Vos. If you are having trouble seeing the embedded video below it is available here.

Johan is a Java Champion, author, speaker, blogger, member of the BeJUG steering group, member of the Devoxx steering group and a JCP member. He is a fan of Java EE, GlassFish and JavaFX. He founded LodgON, a company offering Java based solutions for social networking software. In the interview he shares his experience and expectations for the Java EE track this year.

On this note, I would like to make sure you know that the JavaOne content catalog is now already live with a few preliminary fairly obvious selections we were able to make. None of the sessions accepted at this stage are from Oracle speakers on our track. The folks that we selected early for acceptance include David Blevins, Jonathan Gallimore, Mohammed Taman, Rafael Benevides and Antoine Sabot-Durand. They will be talking about Java EE Connectors (JCA), Java EE 7 real world adoption, CDI and DeltaSpike. I would encourage you to check out all the early selections in the catalog. We are working to finalize the full catalog shortly.

I hope to see you at JavaOne. Do stay tuned for more interviews with committee members and some key speakers on our track.

JavaOne Latin America Highlights

Well-attended by developers, JavaOne Latin America took place last week in São Paulo Brazil.  Amongst the myriad sessions, meetings, entertainment and parties, here are some highlights. 

The community keynote was themed with 20 years of Java and organized by two Java Champions Fabiane Nardon and Bruno Souza. They chronicled the deep involvement of the Brazilian community throughout the history of Java. Bruno Souza, a.k.a JavaMan, founded the Brazilian Java user group SouJava in 1999. Juggy, the Java Finch mascot, was born in 2004.   Fabiane Narbon with her team won the Duke’s Choice Award for Healthcare Information System in 2005. SouJava became the first Java user group member on the JCP executive committee in 2011. 

NightHacking interviews took central stage at the Java Hub. The interviews are being rolled out during the next two weeks. Now available are interviews about Java TV with Bruno Gualda and Thiago Silva, Java and IoT with Vinicius Senger, Java Embedded with Leonardo Lima and Java IoT Cloud with Marco Maciel 

The strategy keynote was packed to hear Vice President of Java SE Platform Georges Saab discuss Java 9 modularity. He encouraged developers to download and test the pre-release builds. “JUGs around the world have helped shape the future of Java EE by participating in the JCP and the Adopt-a-JSR program” explained Senior Director of Software Development Robert Clark.
