News: TSSJS conference at a glance online

  1. TSSJS conference at a glance online (1 messages)

    As promised, the TSSJS agenda has been finalized, and posted in a convenient at-a-glance format. There's a lot to consider, based on the tracks available; what looks good to you? The things that look good to me, keeping in mind that everything was selected based on topics being of interest, are:
    • Neal Ford's opening keynote, Language-Oriented Programming: Shifting Paradigms, given the popularity of alternative languages on the JVM
    • Brian Goetz' Concurrent: Past and Present, addressing issues that affect every multithreaded application - meaning, every application
    • John Davies' Grid Computing session
    • Java Performance Tooling with Holly Cummins
    • The Scalability Pitfall of the Real-Time Web (And How to Fix It), John Fallows and Jonas Jacobi
    • Steve Vinoski, Multi-language Development
    • Metaprogramming (Or: The Groovy Way to Blow a Buttoned-Down Java Developer's Mind), by Scott Davis - my favorite title in the bunch, I think
    • Ben Alex, Web Security Success with Spring Security 2
    • The Busy Java Developer's Guide to Scala, by Ted Neward
    If you notice that I chose only one talk per time period available, well, you're right! I really wish I could clone myself and take a look at more than one at a time, but I can't. I'd love to see what interests TSS readers most... Today is also the deadline of our free book giveaway - the folks at Wiley, Addison-Wesley and Apress have all donated books, and some pretty impressive titles, including pre-releases of some that haven't even come out yet. Options include: 'Next Generation Java Testing: TestNG and Advanced Concepts,' ' Core Java, Volume I, Eighth Edition,' 'Spring 2 Recipes,' 'Practical GWT Projects' and more. You know the drill - Quantities are limited, and available on a first-come, first-served basis, so... register now, people!

  2. what looks good to me[ Go to top ]

    I am happy to see that with just one exception the list is not crowded with conference celebrities that simply cannot have the time to get a real experience with a tool, framework, integration issues or similar - a least not if they have a wife and kids. I think it is time to let the real experts be conference heroes and not just give in to the thinking that a certain name sells tickets. Lars
