Java EE@Oredev 2013

Oredev 2013 was held on 4-8 November in Malmo Sweden. This was my second time at the largest IT conference in the Scania region - I had been there in 2010 as an independent. This year it attracted a decent section of the Java crowd including my fellow Oracle colleagues Brian Goetz, Geertjan Wielenga, Attila Szegedi, Aleksey Shipilev, Cecilia Borg, Marcus Hirt and Tomas Nilsson as well as independent Adam Bien. Topics covered included Java EE, mobile, DDD, agile, HTML5, cloud, Java SE, OpenJDK, JavaScript and NoSQL.

I delivered a full day workshop on Java EE 7 and a technical talk on JAX-RS 2, both of which went well. More details on the sessions and Oredev, including the slide deck and code, posted on my personal blog.
