Java EE 8 - An instant snapshot (21/5)

Hello JUGgers!

Are you ready for the next event? And ready for a great Java & JVM langs conference this summer in Barcelona? We hope so, we are working hard on that! ;-)

Regarding the next event, we would like to invite you to our next talk focused on the status of Java EE 8 by David Delabassee, the next 21th of May at 7pm at FIB

Java EE 7 has been finalised mid 2013 and from J2EE to Java EE 7, much has changed ... but we are not done yet! Through the years, Java EE has always reinventing itself. Java EE 8 will be no exception to this rule! 

In this session, we will look at the current state of Java EE 8. We will review the various new JSRs that will be part of Java EE 8 (e.g. MVC, JSON-B, Security JSR). We will obviously also look how the existing technologies will evolves in Java EE 8 (e.g. Servlet 4 which brings HTTP/2 support, JMS's plan to replace Message Driven Beans, CDI/EJB alignment, JAX-RS 2.1, etc.).

We will finally conclude this discussion by looking at how you can get involved in those works.

David Delabassee is a Software Evangelist working for Oracle; his primary focus is Java on the Server-Side, i.e. Java Enterprise Edition. Prior to OracleDavid spent a decade at Sun Microsystems focusing on Java end-to-end (from the smart card to the high end server), related technologies and developer tools. In his various roles, David has been involved in numerous Java projects since the early days of this technology. 

David lives in Belgium. In his spare time, he enjoys playing video games with his daughter and tinkering with technologies such as Java, Home Automation, Electronics and Pinballs. You can find him on Twitter using @delabassee

That's it, remember to get your place through our MeetUp, thanks again to FibAlumni. We hope to see you all at FIB next thursday 21st at 7pm!

JBCNConf - Tickets available!

Hi JUGgers!

As some of you (we hope all) may know, we are working on the JBCNConf: the 1st Java & JVM langs Barcelona Conference. 

We are super excited with this adventure and we expect to meet at least 300 attendees and around 30 speakers related with Java and JVM languages in Barcelona on 26th and 27th June 2015.

JBCNConf / June, 26-27 - 2015 / Barcelona

We are right now working on the schedule and selecting the first papers and as you can see, we have many interesting speakers and talks confirmed!

Finally, we can not forget to say that you can buy your tickets for the conference! Yes! We have opened the process for buying tickets -weeks ago- and now you can get your entrance for just only 79€ (and until the end of the month or they run out)!

What do you think? Great, isn't? ;-) Ah! Do not miss the opportunity, tickets are limited!

Of course, we will be happy to receive your help (in any manner that it can be). So, if you think you would like to help us somehow, contact with us. We are sure you could help us making this conference even better ;-)

We hope to see you this summer in JBCNConf !

Java Agents (27/4)

Hi JUGgers!

How's everything? Are you enjoying the spring? Get ready for the summer, in June we will have the 1st Java and JVM langs conference in Spain: JBCNConf!

Getting back to our events, April has become a great month for our events, and this year is not different: we have the pleasure to invite you to our next event focused on Java agents by Oleg Šelajev for the next monday 27th at 7pm at FIB thanks to FibAlumni.

Java agents are pluggable self contained components that run embedded in a JVM and intercept the classloading process. They were introduced in Java 5 along with the powerful java.lang.instrument package. Java agents can be loaded statically at startup or dynamically (programmatically) at runtime to attach to a running process in a fail-safe fashion.

Java agents were an awesome addition to the JVM as it opened a lot of opportunities for tool designers and changed Java tooling landscape quite drastically. In conjunction with Java bytecode manipulation libraries it is now possible to do amazing things to Java classes: we can experiment with programming models, redefine classes in runtime, record
execution flow, etc. In this session Oleg will give an overview of Java agents’ functionality along with the usage examples and real world experiences. We will learn, how to implement an agent and apply Instrumentation API in combination with bytecode manipulation libraries to solve interesting tasks. 

Oleg Šelajev is an engineer, author, speaker, lecturer and advocate at ZeroTurnaround. He spends his time testing, coding, writing, giving conference talks, crafting blogposts and reports. He is also pursuing a PhD on dynamic software updates and code evolution. Oleg enjoys speaking and participating in Java/JVM development conferences such as JavaOne, Devoxxes and others. In his free time, Oleg plays chess at a quater-grandmaster level, loves puzzles and solving all kinds of problems.

That's all folks! Remember to RSVPed and we hope to see you next monday!

¿Una base de datos como MongoDB pero con la fiabilidad y robustez de PostgreSQL? (24 y 25/04)

Hi devs !!!!

Aquí estamos, de nuevo al ataque con una interesantisima charla + workshop. En este caso sobre ToroDB PostgreSQL y NoSQL ), el próximo Viernes 24 de Abril tendremos la charla presentación y el Sábado 25 de Abril un workshop, ambos en La Fontana.
¿Te imaginas una base de datos como MongoDB pero con la fiabilidad y robustez de PostgreSQL¿Harto de que en tu empresa o clientes teman usar NoSQL y digan "sólo relacional"? ¿Te imaginas si se pudiera construir una base de datos NoSQL sobre la base de una excelente base de datos relacional? ¿Te imaginas un MongoDB durable, con lecturas consistentes, con transacciones.....?
¿Y si todo ello fuera open source? ¿Y si, además, fuera un desarrollo español, la primera base de datos creada por una startup española?

Pues bienvenido a ToroDB, una base de datos software libre, basada en PostgreSQL, y que implementa el protocolo de MongoDB, por lo que es compatible con cualquier herramienta de MongoDB. Y desarrollada por 8Kdata, startup española. En tu lenguaje favorito: Java.

Habrá una charla el próximo 24 de Abril ( Viernes ) para explicar las características de este software, cómo usarlo y qué ventajas aporta. Y al día siguiente ( Sábado ) 25 de Abril un workshop para amantes de Java donde parte del equipo creador de ToroDB detallará su arquitectura, estructura modular, librerías usadas en ToroDB y una apasionante sesión de hacking para resolver bugs, desarrollar nuevas características o simplemente aprender como funciona de manos de los creadores.

Álvaro Hernández, 36 años, Ingeniero de Telecomunicación, UPM de Madrid, es emprendedor y fundador de startups como Wizzbill y 8Kdata.

Apasionado del software libre y el mundo de las bases de datos, es el fundador y uno de los desarrolladores de ToroDB. Miembro de la comunidad PostgreSQL, es el fundador y Presidente del grupo de usuarios de PostgreSQL España, actualmente el 3er grupo de usuarios más grande del mundo de PostgreSQL. 

Álvaro es miembro también del grupo de Javaspecialists.eu y conferenciante internacional habitual. Y no se pierde ningún jCrete.org ;)

ToroDB ha sido presentado ya a nivel mundial en conferencias en Madrid, Moscú, Nueva York o India. Ha sido incluso presentado en las oficinas centrales de MongoDB en NY, ante el core kernel team. 

No dejes pasar esta oportunidad en Barcelona.

¡Te esperamos!

Microservices roundtable

Hey JUGgers!
Ready for a different kind of event? We hope so, because we will begin to propose new formats of our events as we agreed in our last meeting, focused on what do you want for this year. 
Because of that, we are happy to announce our fist roundtable, where we will talk and share our experiences about building and working with Microservices. As you may know, it is a trendy software architecture design pattern on building complex applications with high concurrency, that provide some benefits to solve problems decoupling services in small pieces that makes small jobs. 
What do you think? It is only a kind of a fashion topic or it is the definite way of building applications that scale and evolve better than monolithic applications? Do you have experience managing an ecosystem of Microservices? What about the deployment process? It is worst than with a monolithic system, isn’t? And how do you test all your architecture? 
Are you working with this kind of architecture? No? Doesn’t matter if you are interested in share your personal experience in this discussion. Come and join us in order to share your experience with this and other architectures and talk with other JUGgers and listen what other developers think about Microservices and their benefits and problems.
This event will be planned, as soon as there will be a minimum number of interested people, so do not forget to reserve your seat ;-)
