Only 27 days remain until we kick off our 4th annual TheServerSide Java Symposium-Europe 2009! We’ve been planning the Symposium for months and based on feedback from our conference presenters and current registrants, the hard work has paid off! It began with a comprehensive survey of the Java community – including a number conversations with TheServerSide.com members like you – and our final conference agenda is the best it’s ever been reflecting the topics and sessions that matter most. Plenty of admission discounts remain available with teams saving as much as $1,000! Check out the full agenda and email Delegate Relations Manager. Melissa Cote mcote at techtarget dot com for discount pricing or with any conference questions. Here’s where we’re at now in terms of late-breaking agenda updates: Adrian Colyer, CTO of SpringSource, keynotes on Emerging Trends in Enterprise Java Development. Together we’ll explore programming languages, frameworks, runtimes, platforms, and data centers that have the potential to transform the way that we build, run, and manage enterprise Java applications. With the acquisition of SpringSource by VMWare, and Sun by Oracle, as a community we’d like to take an independent look at what’s to come in 2010. 40+ key breakout sessions: • Frameworks sessions explore Wicket, Naked Objects 4.0, Hades, LamdaJ, OSGi, and NetKernel. • Architecture sessions dive into Apache ServiceMix 4, Business Process Engines (BPE), Cloud/Enterprise Hybrid Case Studies, Mule and Hadoop Integration, and a Self-Scaling Distribution Platform for OSGi Applications. • Language sessions dissect EJB, Spring, JavaFX, Grails, and Java language extensions for parallel programming. • Tools & Techniques sessions cover static code analysis, agile database development, the top 10 open source debugging tools, memory analysis, real-life J2EE performance tuning, TeamCity, I/O and more! See the agenda at-a-glance here. Fireside Chats: Fireside Chats are small, informal discussions with your peers on topics of interest to the community, like performance tuning, frameworks, SOA and more. Official topics discussed to be announced soon. The goal of Fireside Chats is to give you one-on-one time with others to get answers to your questions and hear what others are working on. Network, network, network: Whether it’s during lunch in the delectable Brasserie Veduta restaurant, at the Java Symposium Evening Events, in-between breakout sessions, or in Fireside Chats with experts and your peers – we’ve built in many great networking opportunities for you to partake in and meet other developers.
