Bessem Hmidi on AngularBeans at JavaOne 2015

By Reza Rahman 

For the Java EE track at JavaOne 2015 we are highlighting some key sessions and speakers to better inform you of what you can expect, right up until the start of the conference.

To this end we recently interviewed Bessem Hmidi. Bessem is the JUG leader of the ESPRIT JUG Tunisia, an educator, a researcher, an international speaker and a Java EE enthusiast. He spoke to us about his accepted session at JavaOne 2015 on AngularBeans. AngularBeans is a very innovative open source project that marries AngularJS with CDI and Java EE (click here if you can't see the embedded video). We've highlighted AngularBeans on this humble blog in the past.

You can find details on Bessem's session on the JavaOne 2015 content catalog. The following are the other sessions we talked about:

Besides these sessions, we have a very strong program for the Java EE track and JavaOne overall - just explore the content catalog. If you can't make it, you can be assured that we will make key content available after the conference just as we have always done.
