For the Java EE track at JavaOne 2014 we will highlight some key sessions and speakers to better inform you of what you can expect.
To this end we recently interviewed none other than Adam Bien. In the very unlikely case that you don't know who Adam is he is a key Java EE advocate, independent consultant, Java EE expert member, highly popular speaker, blogger and author. To add to Adam's extensive credentials he is also a Java Champion, Top Java Ambassador and JavaOne Rock Star. Few folks have done as much to advocate Java EE as Adam has, especially in Germany and Europe. We are very honored to have Adam speak at JavaOne and interview him on his sessions this year:
Adam has several key sessions on the track:
">"> • Unorthodox Enterprise Practices: Modern Java EE aside, server-side Java is certainly not a new technology. Over the years server-side Java development has picked up the clutter of many outdated practices and patterns. In this live coding session Adam attempts to remove some of that clutter by demonstrating first hand just how lean and lightweight Java EE 7 applications should be. Many of the practices he demonstrates are from the real world projects in his highly successful consulting practice.
• Java EE 8 Community Update and Panel: This panel is intended to be an open forum for discussing Java EE 8. The panel consists of both some vendors and key folks in the community like Adam. The panel will be moderated by my colleague Bruno Borges. The idea is to encourage panelists to interact with each other and the audience.
Adam also has a session titled Productive JavaFX 8. In this session he discusses ideas like integrating JavaFX with Java EE 7 and Java SE 8. If you are already a Java EE fan or still just evaluating, you will be well-served to attend Adam's sessions at JavaOne. In the months running up to JavaOne we hope to highlight a few more key folks and sessions, so do stay tuned.
