Speaking at JavaOne 2013

I’ve been awarded one of 100th people who will move IT forward in France for 2013

Sometimes life is about surprises. The other day I received an email from a friend saying “hey, congratulation, you’ve been awarded one of 100th people who will move IT forward in 2013“. Of course, I didn’t understand his email and didn’t reply. A few days later I received a more official email from the French … Continue reading

A week in central Europe… with CDI

I haven’t talked much lately at conferences or JUGs. The last one was Devoxx in November 2010 and I have been quite ever since (working on some other plans ;o) But it’s time to do a bit of touring again. This time it will be Central Europe and the topic with injection in CDI. The presentation of the talk is To inject or not to inject: CDI is the question and the description roughly is :

After a quick introduction of CDI (Contexts and Dependency Injection) I will concentrate on dependency injection and the type-safe approach on injection in CDI. If you are fed up of using String based configuration, come to this talk and have a type-safe journey on CDI.

How come I am touring again ? Everything started with an invitation from my friends at GeeCon. I discovered GeeCon in 2009. It was the first edition of this conference in Cracow (Poland) created by the local user group.
