Jfokus 2014 Trip Report

Jfokus 2014 took place 3-5 February in Stockholm, Sweden. Jfokus slates itself as the largest developer conference in Sweden and it certainly is quite significant in terms of both content quality and attendance. The event attracted a bevy of World class speakers including quite a few of my fellow Oracle colleagues - Mark Reinhold, Georges Saab, Stephen Chin, Simon Ritter, Mark Heckler, Angela Caicedo, Geertjan Wielenga (NetBeans), Heather VanCura (JCP), Cecilia Borg (OpenJDK), Joel Borggrén-Franck (JDK) and Marcus Hirt (JDK). Notable other folks speaking included Venkat Subramaniam, David Blevins, Pratik Patel, Trisha Gee, Martijn Verburg and Anton Arhipov. Topics covered included Java SE, Java EE, embedded Java, JavaScript, cloud, mobile, DevOps, agile and Big Data/NoSQL.

I delivered a half-day Java EE 7 workshop using Cargo Tracker and a talk on aligning Java EE with the JavaScript/HTML 5 ecosystem. I also participated in a BoF on the JCP, OpenJDK, Adopt-a-JSR and Java EE 8 as well as a shootout on static vs. dynamic languages. More details, including slide decks and code, posted on my personal blog.
