JavaOne Track Highlights: Java Development Tools and Agile Techniques Track

By David Lopez

The JavaOne 2015 Content Catalog is live. We’ve got hundreds of great sessions covering all things Java related. To help you find exactly what you’re looking for, be it Server-Side Development, Security, or anything in between, the sessions have been placed into 8 tracks. The tracks at this year’s conference are designed to be the ultimate guide to help you stay on top of the latest innovations in Java technologies. This is the eighth and final post in a series on the tracks being offered at this year’s conference. Last week, we looked at the Java Clients and User Interfaces track. Today, let’s look at the Java Development Tools and Agile Techniques track and a few featured sessions. 

Looking for ways to improve your Java development productivity? Writing code that works is essential, but working to write good code doesn’t have to be as hard as it once was. Modern Java development tools and agile development techniques are constantly making this process easier. On the Java Development Tools and Agile Techniques track, we’ve compiled a series of sessions that will help you master these developments and improve your productivity. You’ll learn to use tools like IDEs, monitoring, testing, and performance environments, and you’ll learn practices like test-driven development, behavior-driven development, domain-driven design, application lifecycle management, continuous integration, and more. 

On this track, be sure to look out for “Using Automation Tools for Code Quality Improvements for Java Applications” by Oleksandr Chelombitko and Oleksandr Lipanov from Softarex Technologies Inc. This featured session will help you improve the quality of your source code. Using codEnforcer, source code can be analyzed and improved independently of any other tools used in the development process. This session is a hands-on lab, meaning that you’ll get firsthand experience, bridging the gap between learning and doing. Also on this track is “Development Horror Stories,” a Birds-of-a-Feather Session hosted by Simon Maple and Oleg Shelajev from ZeroTurnaround. Come share your most horrific development story and what you did to fix it. You’ll hear from other developers on their horror story and fix in this session. Why just learn from your own mistakes? Take advantage of this session and avoid future catastrophe. 

To see more from this track, head over to the Content Catalog and filter by Java Development Tools and Agile Techniques. It’s shaping up to be a great JavaOne 2015. Make sure you don’t miss out on all the latest innovations in Java and the great opportunities to connect with the Java Community. Register today!

JavaOne Track Highlights: Java Clients and User Interfaces

By David Lopez

The JavaOne 2015 Content Catalog is live. We’ve got hundreds of great sessions covering all things Java related. To help you find exactly what you’re looking for, be it Server-Side Development, Security, or anything in between, the sessions have been placed into tracks. There are 8 tracks at this year’s conference designed to be the ultimate guide to help you stay on top of the latest innovations in Java technologies. This is the seventh post in a series on the tracks being offered at this year’s conference. Last week, we looked at the Java and Server-Side Development track. Today, let’s look at the Java Clients and User Interfaces track and a few featured sessions.

This track is designed to give you the tools and skills you need to make sure your UI is effective as the rest of your application. With all the new ways that we interact with tech, including touch screen devices, user interfaces are no longer an afterthought. Each UI must be carefully planned if you are going to make each device just as user friendly while leveraging the unique benefits of each type of device to the fullest extent. The Java Clients and User Interfaces track will help develop your JavaFX, HTLM5, and JavaScript skills for everything from small, handheld devices to more powerful systems.

On this track, be sure to check out the featured session: “Building Applications with PostgreSQL’s jsonb Datatype, Play 2 Framework, and REST” by Anton Kazakov from Softarex Technologies Inc. This is a Hands-on Lab Session, meaning you’ll walk away with firsthand knowledge. The session was covered in last week’s blog on the Java and Server-Side Development track, so I won’t go into it at length here, but it is a great way to learn a technique for managing difficult class hierarchies and data that would usually require multiple databases. Also on the Java Clients and User Interfaces track is “One Codebase to Rule Them All: Going Mobile wit 2048FX” by Jens Deters and José Pereda. Looking to turn your JavaFX-made desktop game application into a mobile app that can be distributed on the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store? This session will show you how! Using JavaFXPorts, only minor changes are required to take your game and make it mobile. Another great session to look out for will teach you to build a voice user interface (VUI). For information on building a VUI, check out “Speech Recognition in Java” by Breandan Considine from JetBrains, Inc. This session will give you the tools to build a speech recognizer by taking advantage of open source libraries, making it easier to focus on the VUI.
To see more from this track, head over to the Content Catalog and filter by Java Clients and User Interfaces. It’s shaping up to be a great JavaOne 2015. Make sure you don’t miss out on all the latest innovations in Java and the great opportunities to connect with the Java Community. Register  today!
