Unfortunately it’s already over; JavaLand 2015. It was an excellent conference on a cool location, with very good food and some really interesting sessions. The rooms were quite unique with skeletons and pirates, but what else do you expect in a themepark?
My session was well attended, although it was lunchtime and there were quite some other interesting session. So thanks all for joining my session. If you want you can download the slides of my talk Beyond the Basics of SonarQube
Although most sessions I visited were quite interesting I would like to highlight a few of them:
– Welcome Keynote: Welcome to JavaLand & 20 Years of Java by Marcus Lagergren
As I’m not so old yet I mist a part of the Java revolution :). Marcus told an excellent story about his (Java) life in the last 20 years. His history lesson was way better than the ones I received when I was studying.
– Systeme modernisieren mit Microservices, Hystrix und RxJava by Holger Kraus and Arne Landwehr
In my current project we’re also using Hystrix and it’s something that can help us to develop higher quality (Microservice) applications
– Confessions of an Automation Addict by Holly Cummins
We should automate as much as possible because we’re all lazy. Spend the time you save to search for a better word than ‘lazy’ to describe what you do to your manager. Although we should automate as much as possible it’s useless to automate tasks that are only performed once.
– Architecture for Internet of Things: Helmets, Houses and Sailboats! by the Sengers
Quite unusual to see a husband and wife presenting together. But it was really nice and interesting. IoT is rocking with a lot of software and also hardware vendors trying to claim a share. I’m looking forward to their Surfboard Kickstarter project.
– IoT Magic Show by Stephen Chin and Angela Caicedo
A magic show in a themepark, what else do you want? I really liked the card trick and the car trick. The 3D printed items that they showed are quite amazing. I didn’t new that things like that could be printed at once by a 3D printer. Time to save some money for my own 3D printer.- –
