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.
