Update 1: added content about Greg Wilkin's Async IO session.
I estimate that this is my 15th or 16th JavaOne. I started in 1998 or 1999 and missed 2003 due to the birth of my first son. Aside from that, I haven't missed one since. I consider myself very blessed to have taken a small part in such a long and fun ride.
I meant to mark this anniversary when it came up, but missed doing so. It's been ten years, so what's an additional five weeks going to mean. On 28 June 2004 I announced, with my first entry on this blog, the first part of Java to be released into open-source.
In an earlier blog entry I listed my picks for DevNexus 2014. This blog entry summarizes my notes from this show.
I’m happy to report that the 2014 edition of the Web Framework Smackdown is shaping up to be a good one.
We've been using TDD for Mojarra for nearly a decade now and after all that time, we have decent number of tests.
This entry lists Ed’s picks for the brand new JavaLand conference. Many of the talks are in German, but there is enough English to make it worth your time. It looks like there is a lot more English content in day two.
I presented this demo at DevNexus 2014 in Atlanta today. It is Reza's demo with just a pinch more Java EE thrown in. This blog entry covers how to fully internationalize an AngularJS application with just a pinch of Java EE.
I've been blessed with the opportunity to speak at DevNexus 2014. This is my first time speaking at a DevNexus event and I'm excited at the opportunity to meet and learn from many top-name speakers currently practicing today. As I planned out my time here are the sessions I've added to my calendar.
