This year JavaOne came, as usually, with a lot of surprises, experiences and lessons learned. One thing that is for sure is the fact that JavaOne has a huge community soul that is and will last as long as we (the communities) continue contributing to it.
One of the best moments regarding Java 20th anniversary celebration was the clever Java Community Keynote
leaded by Stephen Chin. It’s incredible how a technology has evolve over 20 years and be today stronger than ever before. I’m glad to be part of a tiny portion of those 20 years and also thankful for all the good friends that I have in my country and all over the world because of this passion for technology.
The Java Hub was a great place with a lot of interesting wearables/IoT projects, robotics, 3D Printing and with collaboration spaces like hackergarten
, Night Hacking
interviews and much more. I was able to catch up updates about OpenJdk, some JSR’s and others Open Source Projects. I also had the chance to promote the JEspañol
community that aims to generate synergy among the Latin American Java User Groups whose main language is Spanish.
Besides my Rock Code And Roll
participation, this year I focused on attending conferences and hands on labs related with Containers orchestration, micro/pico/nano services (you name it) and Java EE. I’ll do my best to reserve some time to post some tips and tricks related with this topics over the following months.
Here you can find a index of resources to catch up about the conferences, keynotes, interviews and complementary materials:
Finally, I want to thanks to Deiby Gomez, Nichole Scott, Heather VanCura, The Null Pointers (Freddy Guime, Frank Greco, Ed Burns, Mattias Karlsson, Zoran Sevarac, Peter Pilgrim, Hiroshi), Andres Almiray, Ixchel Ruiz, Alexis López and Bruno Borges for their support that was crucial for me to be able to attend and be actively involved in the conference.
