Paul and I are running the Virtual JBoss User Group and we aim for delivering interesting and high profile talks around all kinds of JBoss projects and technologies. I normally don't blog about every upcoming meeting, but let me highlight some, which I find very interesting and I am very happy to have them on our channel.
How to contribute to JBoss WildFly? Hacking on the next Java EE Version - Tuesday, April 21, 2015, 5 PM UTC
Speaker Kabir Khan (@kabirkhan, GitHub) will explain how you can contribute to the WildFly project at many different levels, from properly reporting bugs in the forums and issue tracker, to actually being able to submit a pull request.
Kabir Khan joined JBoss in 2004 and lead the JBoss AOP project. During this time he helped write the first EJB 3 implementation, and helped on integrating JBoss AOP with other projects such as JBoss Messaging, and the JBoss Microcontainer. He joined the JBoss Microcontainer team in 2009, and spent a lot of time optimising its performance for JBoss AS 6. In 2010 he joined the WildFly team very early in the JBoss AS 7 cycle, and has been a member of the core WildFly team since. He is based in London.
During this interactive event you will have a chance to play with WildFly 9 and try some of the following:
- Find a JIRA you want to work on.
- See how to check-out the code and setup your IDE.
- Build WildFly
- Code walkthrough - code organisation, jboss-modules etc.
- Debug something from a stack trace in a JIRA issue to nail down the problem.
- Try the testsuite
- And more!
