Description JavaOne is het grootste jaarlijkse Java-evenement ter wereld en vindt plaats in San Francisco; dit jaar van 1 tot en met 5 oktober. Van Info Support zullen twee sprekers een sessie verzorgen: Maarten Mulders en Johan Janssen, die vorig jaar zijn naam zag bijgeschreven op de Rock Star Wall of Fame.

SSL/TLS for Mortals, Maarten Mulders:

Using SSL/TLS the right way is often a big hurdle for developers. We prefer that individual colleagues perform "something with certificates," because they know how it works. But what if they are enjoying a vacation and something goes wrong? As Java engineers, we tend to rely on TLS’ being configured correctly and just taken care of, but do we actually understand the techniques we are using? This session takes a close look at secure communication at the transport level. Starting with what exactly SSL and TLS are, it dives into public/private keys and signing. Of course, there'll be plenty of practical tips and tricks as well as demos. Attend this session to become "that one colleague" who knows how it all works!

How We Started Our First Java Conference: JVMCON, Johan Janssen:

Last year this session’s speaker came up with the idea of organizing his own JVM conference. What makes this conference different from (most) other Java/JVM conferences is that the attendees rate the session proposals. While voting, the attendees cannot see who proposed each session, to support equal opportunity. The top-rated sessions are included in the program. After he came up with the idea, the organizer's famous last words were, ”How hard can it be?” The last couple of months, he worked on everything, from the website to speaking with potential partners. If you (plan to) organize a conference, this session will give you some tricks such as organizing games to design a logo and useful applications.

Use Voice Recognition with Alexa to Control Your Home, Johan Janssen:

What if you’re eating and having a discussion about a certain topic? Searching on your phone would mean that your food gets cold. Or what if you’re lying on the couch without your phone and want to control the lights? The voice recognition service called Alexa can solve those issues. This presentation shows you how to integrate Alexa into your home automation setup with openHAB (used as an example). This enables you to control your lights and everything else with your voice. You can use Alexa with almost any software and hardware. Last but not least, the presentation shows you how to create your own skills in Java to add functionality to Alexa. The skills are deployed with Maven to AWS Lambda as a serverless application.
