Java EE @ Java Day Tokyo 2014

Java Day Tokyo 2014 was held on May 22nd. Organized by Oracle Japan, it is the largest Java developer event in the country. Indeed it is really a replacement to JavaOne Japan. This was another highly successful year for the event with a fully sold out venue packed with youthful, energetic developers. Speakers included Steve Chin, Stuart Marks, Simon Ritter, Nandini Ramani, Cameron Purdy and Yoshio Terada. Topics included Java SE, Java EE and JavaFX. Cameron Purdy, Vice President of Development at Oracle responsible for Java EE, shared the Java EE 8 road-map during the opening keynote.

I did talks on Java EE 7/Java EE 8 and aligning Java EE 7 with the HTML 5/JavaScript Rich Client landscape. There were many other very interesting Java EE related session in Japanese and English, including a Java EE adoption story from Rakuten. More details, including slide decks and code, posted on my personal blog.
