This is just a quick note about the WJAX Java developer conference that take place last week in Munich.
The conference program was quite balanced and beside the main stream topics about SOA (ServiceOrientedArchitektur – represented by the SOACon conference), Spring, Application Security and OSGi there was a huge number of different topics, which were addressed by several talks.
Most interesting from my point of view were following sessions:
- Keynote from Jonas Jacobi: Re-architecting the Web with HTML 5 Communication.
- Talk from Karsten Lentzsch: Efficient design of swing UI’s.
- Talk from Angelika Langer: Java programming in the age of multicore.
- Talk from Dierk Koenig: RESTful JEE with Grails.
Canoo was exhibiting on a booth, which gave the great opportunity to present and talk about our products UltraLightClient (ULC), the just released language application for the IPhone (using canoo.net), our demo for the new JavaFX platform and fancy UltraLightClient / Swing rich client applications. In addition Canoo members used the presence to keep in touch with existing costumers, contact new ones or presented the company to potential new staff members.
Canoo Online Quiz
All the visitors on the booth and all other interested software developers had and still have the possibility to join an online quiz. Its possible to win an iPod touch or one of ten ‘Groovy in Action’ books. The quiz can be found at www.canoo.com/quiz and will end at the 30.11.2008.
Dierk König, Canoo fellow and author of the ‘Groovy in Action’ book, was holding a groovy workshop and was giving a talk about RESTful JEE with Grails.
