Are you going to JavaOne? Well I’m not! But instead I’ll be doing some talks in October and November in Europe and Morocco. Four years ago I toured central Europe giving CDI talks. Next week I’ll start another tour with CDI and Forge talks. Here is my schedule : Tuesday 20th of October – JUG Frankfurt (Map) : Talk on JBoss Forge […]
At Devoxx France 2014 I had a Tools in Action of 30 minutes on JBoss Forge…. in French. So, excuse my French… but if you understand the language, you can watch this video. Talk in French
Two weeks ago I did a little tour around several JUGs and conferences to talk about dependency injections with CDI. The final goal of this road movie was to end up at GeeCon in Krakow. It was my second time at GeeCon and I have to say that this conference is like good wine : getting better with age. This community based conference is on its third edition and attracts people through out central and eastern Europe. Plenty of good speakers, nice location, skilled attendees... and a lot of fun (GeeCon organizers are party addicts). So make sure you mark this conference into your agenda for next year....
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.
2008, c’était l’année de Bienvenue chez les Ch’tis. 2009 c’est l’année du Ch’ti JUG. Mais non, je ne ponctuerai pas ce post de “biloute”, ‘j’te dis quoi” et autres “heiiinnnnn!”. En fait, je veux juste vous informer de l’événement del ch’nord (ha, je me suis laissé aller là) à ne pas louper : une présentation sur Java EE 6 pour […]
I’m proud to announce that I’ll be talking at the GeeCON conference about Java EE 6. Proud because this conference is the first edition and has been created by the Polish JUG. A few months ago, Grzegorz Duda asked me if I was interested in speaking there. I’m always ready when it comes to talk for JUGs. GeeCON is a […]
The first very good news of JavaPolis is that since the 9th of december, the Thalys train (from Paris to Antwerp) stops at the central train station, in the heart of the city. Before, the station was quite far from the city. I arrived with David at 5:30pm, we quickly ran to the hotel to checkin, and then we took a taxi to JavaPolis. There we met the JUG Leaders and off we went to a brewery in the town center. The idea of this diner was to have JUG leaders (and speakers) in the same room to exchange. And that‘s what I did. I talked to a lot of people (some I don‘t even know their names, sorry) about running a Java User Group. Bruno Bussola from JUG Torino gave me some good tips on how to get some sponsors. Paris Apostolopoulos, from the Java Hellenic User Group in Athens, is quite a character. He is full of energy and told us how he always kept faithful in creating his JUG, even when the times were tough (meetings with only a few friends…). Later, Stephan Janssen (BeJUG) came to me and said “I‘m tryin to get James Gosling coming to Europe. I‘ve sent the Italians and Greeks to convice him to come, go, talk to him, and tell him to come”. So I did. I spent 10 minutes on a one on one talking to James Gosling (hope someone […]
