On November 6th I will be presenting Building & Deploying Graph-based Web Apps at the GraphConnect 2012 conference in San Francisco. Here is the session description: This session will teach you how to build a Graph-based web application with Java, Play Framework, and Neo4j. You will also lean how to deploy the application on the cloud with Heroku. The session will primarily be code and live demos. I hope to see you there!
This year at JavaOne I’ll be presenting two session and participating in one BOF: BOF4149 - Web Framework Smackdown 2012 - Monday @ 8:30pm Much has changed since the first Web framework smackdown, at JavaOne 2005. Or has it? The 2012 edition of this popular panel discussion surveys the current landscape of Web UI frameworks for the Java platform. The 2005 edition featured JSF, Webwork, Struts, Tapestry, and Wicket. The 2012 edition features representatives of the current crop of frameworks, with a special emphasis on frameworks that leverage HTML5 and thin-server architecture.
I’m really looking forward to being back at JavaZone in Oslo this September! I’ll be speaking about Running Java, Play! and Scala Apps on the Cloud. This session will teach you how to get started deploying Java and Scala apps on Heroku. I’ll be around for the whole conference, so if anyone wants to grab a drink, deploy some apps, or write some code with me, then let me know. See you there!
In just a few weeks I’ll be over in Europe presenting about Heroku at two fantastic Java conferences. First up is Jfokus in Stockholm! On February 14 at 20:00 I will be leading a Cloud Conversations BoF. Then on February 15 at 11:10 I will be speaking about how to “git push” Java & Play! Apps to the Cloud. This will be my first time speaking at Jfokus and I’m really excited because I’ve heard such great things.
Over the next few days I’ll be presenting about Java, Play Framework, and Scala on Heroku at a couple Java User Groups and a MongoDB conference: Cincinnati JUG on January 26th Detroit JUG on January 31st MongoDB Boulder on Febuary 1st Hope to see you there!
As expected… Devoxx 2011 rocked! Such a fun conference with top notch sessions and people. I presented a session on how to deploy Java, Play Framework, and Scala apps on Heroku. Matt Raible did a great (and very thorough) write-up on my session. Thanks Matt! Here are my slides: There was also some hot news at Devoxx… Play Framework 2 is the official web framework in the Typesafe Stack! And Heroku already supports Play 2!
Devoxx is one of my favorite conferences of the year so I’m lucky to be presenting there again this year. This Thursday at noon I’ll be presenting about Heroku and how to deploy Java, Play Framework, and Scala apps on the cloud. Hopefully see you there!
I’m very excited to be presenting at Dreamforce (salesforce.com’s anual conference) this year! On Thursday, September 1, from 1:15 pm to 2:15 pm I will be presenting: Developing Java Cloud Apps The cloud makes it easy to deploy highly scalable apps in an instant. This session will walk you through the steps to build your first Java app for the cloud. You’ll also learn best practices for building mission-critical and horizontally scalable Java cloud apps.
