The Great Indian Developer Summit (GIDS) 2015 will be held on April 21-24 in Bangalore, with a follow-on GIDS.Mini to be held on April 25 in Hyderabad. GIDS is very easily the largest and most significant developer event in South Asia. Perhaps reflecting global demographic shifts in software development, GIDS may also now have become one of the largest developer conferences in the world. It is truly a privilege to be able to speak at the event and I am even more fortunate to have a number of Java EE sessions there. While in India I am very happy to say I will also be speaking at a couple of entirely community driven JUG events at the Madras JUG (Chennai) and the Hyderabad Java user group before and after GIDS.

Below are a preview of my talks at GIDS:

  • Using JavaScript/HTML5 Rich Clients with Java EE 7: This is my thus far extremely popular and well-received talk on using Java EE 7 as an effective back-end for JavaScript/HTML5 rich clients. If this is a development model that interests you, the talk should give you some valuable tools to get started. Although I use AngularJS for my examples, the basic participles from a Java EE 7 perspective apply to any JavaScript/HTML5 or native/hybrid mobile client. The slides for the talk are on SlideShare while the demo code is on GitHub. Besides Bangalore, I will be repeating this talk in Hyderabad for GIDS.Mini.

  • Reactive Java EE - Let Me Count the Ways!: This is one of my newest and thus far also extremely popular and well-received talks. It explores how Java EE 7 APIs like JMS, MDB, EJB @Asynchronous, JAX-RS/Servlet/WebSocket async, CDI events and Java EE concurrency utilities along with Java SE 8 features such as lambdas and Completable Futures work to align the platform with the reactive movement. The slides for the talk arehere.

  • Applied Domain-Driven Design Blue Prints for Java EE: This talk essentially introduces theCargo Tracker project. In the talk I cover the very basics of DDD, discuss how DDD constructs apply to Java EE and show how the mapping can be done using Cargo Tracker. The slides for the talk are here.

  • I am very honored that the Madras JUG and Hyderabad JUG invited me to speak to their members while in India for GIDS and very proud that I was able to accept. The GIDS organizers were very gracious in extending their goodwill to support the community. Both the JUGS in Madras and Hyderabad have arranged all day events in slightly different formats, which is awesome.

    The Madras JUG will host multiple talks on the same day. I will be delivering the opening keynote as well as a technical session. For the keynote I will be delivering my thus far very well-received talk titled Why Open Standards and Java/EE Matter. In the talk I will discuss the basic value proposition of open standards like Java and Java EE in maintaining a healthy, competitive, multi-vendor ecosystem. The slides for the talk are here. For the technical talk, I'll be delivering the latest update on Java EE 8. Besides covering the current state of Java EE 8 I also cover how you can get involved in the process including through highly inclusive programs like Adopt-a-JSR. The slides for the Java EE 8 talk are also on SlideShare. The Madras JUG event will be held before GIDS and the details for the event are here.

    The Hyderabad JUG is hosting the Java EE 7 Hands-on-Lab as a full day workshop. This is essentially our flagship lab/workshop at the moment covering Java EE 7. It has always proven popular so far and it is a great way to get some hands-on experience with Java EE 7. The Hyderabad JUG event will take place after GIDS.Mini and the details are here.

    Hope to see you in India soon during at least one of these events? As always never hesitate to reach out to me if there is something I can help with or if you have a question. I'll bring along some Java/Java EE goodies you are welcome to :-).
