Java EE@JUDCon India

JUDCon India 2014 was held in Bangalore on the 30th and 31st of January. Returning to Banglalore for the 3rd consecutive year, JUDCon is the most significant conference focusing on enterprise development in the JBoss community. Sessions covered the latest happenings in the JBoss ecosystem including OpenShift, Arquillian, Wildfly, Aerogear, Drools, jBPM, Vert.x, JBoss Forge, JBoss Tools and Java EE 7.

Our flagship talk for this past year, titled JavaEE.Next(): Java EE 7, 8, and Beyond was accepted to be presented at the conference by none other than Oracle India's own Vijay Nair. Vijay is a good friend and a lead developer with Oracle's FLEXCUBE development group in India. Among many other things like evangelizing Java EE at Java user groups and conferences across South Asia, Vijay contributes heavily to the Cargo Tracker Java EE Blue Prints project in his spare time. The talk was a full house and went quite well with a lot of positive feedback from the participants. There was also a brief conversation about Java EE 8 as well as Cargo Tracker (of course :-)). Slides for the session are posted below:

Continuing the focus of spreading the Java EE 7 message across South Asia, Vijay will be leading a half-day, four-session workshop on Java EE 7 at the Colombo (Sri Lanka!) JUG on the 13th of March as part of their second anniversary meet up. Colombo JUG is a very active JUG and has a vibrant ecosystem of developers. Details of the meetup are here with close to around 190 people already registered for this cool event. Expect to see more of Java EE 7 and Vijay in South Asia!
