Java EE@JogloCon

On December 27th, I did a virtual session via Google Hangout on the Java API for WebSocket (JSR 356) for JogloCon 2013. Organized by JUG Joglosemar, JogloCon is one of the largest Java conferences in the Yogyakarta area of Indonesia. This year, the conference focused on everything Java EE! Yosi Pramajaya and Deny Prasetyo of the JUG Joglosemar did an excellent job putting the conference together. This was JUG Joglosemar's first event after it's resurrection in 2013. The event was a full-house with over 200 registering. Enjoy the slideshow below of the conference:

The slide deck for my talk is available here. You can also take a look at the video of WebSocket specification lead Danny Coward's JavaOne 2013 talk on Parleys.com:

Let's hope to see great things from JUG Joglosemar, Yosi Pramajaya and Deny Prasetyo in the New Year!

SouJava JUG meeting at Oracle Brasil

On Thursday Feb 21th, Oracle Brasil welcomed the SouJava JUG to its new Oracle Office in Sao Paulo. SouJava does several meetings across different places. Companies like Red Hat, Google, and GlobalCode already offered their offices for previous meetings. Bruno Souza was there to talk about the importance of the Adopt a JSR program and the participation of JUGs on the Java Community Process. SouJava voted Yes on the recent Public Review for JMS 2.0.

To bring attention to the launch of Java EE 7 and its new specifications, I presented "The new features of JMS 2.0" (pt_BR), basically the same content as Reza Rahman presented during JavaOne Latin America (but this time, in portuguese; until Reza doesn't become fluent). There was also a presentation from Ricardo Ferreira talking about In-memory Data Processing with Elastic Data Grids, an introduction to highly scalable architectures, with a demonstration using Coherence, GlassFish and WebLogic. His presentation was also in portuguese.

I gave Google+ a try and used Google+ Events to schedule and invite developers from everywhere and used the Hangout feature to chat and live stream the meeting. You can see the recording on YouTube. Don't forget to also visit our GlassFish community on G+!
