Java Champions Speaking at JavaOne 2015

Java Champions will present dozens of sessions this year again at JavaOne! They are an exclusive group of passionate Java technology and community leaders, nominated by the Java community. They are seasoned developers and architects with in-depth knowledge about development.  

These top speakers share their know-how in all the JavaOne tracks including client, core Java platform, Internet of Things, JVM languages, security, tools, server-side, cloud and methodology.

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.

Robots, NetBeans IDE, and Raspberry Pi with James Gosling

James Gosling is now chief software architect of the Wave Glider, the flagship product at Liquid Robotics. The Wave Glider is a self-propelled, autonomous marine robot that collects and transmits ocean data. The Wave Glider will be on display exclusively at the Java Hub in the JavaOne exhibit hall during the entire conference. 

Since Gosling started at Liquid Robotics, he has re-architected the onboard software and refined a data-as-a-service cloud to provide direct, real-time access to ocean information. Java, which he invented, has played an increasing role in ocean data transmission and analysis.  

“Being able to debug and profile robots out at sea is a truly life-altering experience,” Gosling explains. He uses a set of tools—consisting of editors, debuggers, and profilers—that are part of the NetBeans IDE. At the JavaOne 2014 NetBeans Community Day, he will present the session “James Gosling, Robots, the Raspberry Pi, and Small Devices” [UGF8907] on Sunday, September 28. He will also present “Debugging and Profiling Robots with James Gosling” [CON6699] on Wednesday, October 1. Geertjan Wielenga, Mark Heckler, José Pereda, Johannes Weigend, Shai Almog and Jens Deters will join him to discuss those two topics. 

Join him as he closes out the JavaOne Community Keynote with a fun, historical perspective of the genesis of Java, and a T-shirt toss! The Community Keynote will be held in the Marriott Marquis, Salon 7/8/9, on Thursday, October 2, 2014

Antoine Sabot-Durand's CDI Sessions at JavaOne 2014

By Guest Blogger Reza Rahman

For the Java EE track at JavaOne 2014 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 Antoine Sabot-Durand. Antoine is the newly minted CDI specification lead. In the short time that he has been at Red Hat, he has already had the CDI 1.2 specification under his belt and he has already started work for CDI 2 (CDI 2 is a major overhaul of the specification targeted for Java EE 8). I have known about Antoine since he worked onAgorava, a social media module for CDI/Java EE. Besides working on the CDI specification, he is also responsible for the CDI ecosystem at Red Hat - currently focused on DeltaSpike.

We wanted to talk to Antoine about his CDI sessions at JavaOne 2014:

Antoine has several sessions on the track that he talked about:

  • Introducing Contexts and Dependency Injection: This is essentially a CDI primer for folks that are still newcomers or evaluating. It's probably worth attending as a refresher even for more experienced folks.
  • Going Farther with CDI 1.2: This is a slightly more advanced session talking about less commonly used features as well as the changes in CDI 1.1/CDI 1.2. The CDI ecosystem generally is also covered.
  • The Path to CDI 2.0: This is essentially a CDI futures talk. It's probably the best way to find out what is in the works for CDI 2.
  • CDI 2.0 BOF: This informal Birds-of-a-Feather session is a rare chance for you to interact directly with the folks leading the CDI specification and share your ideas, questions and feedback. It's probably the best and easiest way for most folks to contribute directly to the CDI specification.

Besides Antoine's 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.
