LJC @ JAX London Community Night

This event is run by LJC alongside JAX London.  It is free to attend but you need to register separately via 

LJC @ JAX London Community Night

The LJC will host an evening of talks from some of the JAX London speakers as part of the conferences Community Night.  Described as a beer, wine and code fuelled ‘taster’ of the main conference, the community night brings various user groups together and gives us a chance to hear from people not regularly on these shores.

We have 3 talks running:

Building Reactive applications for Java developers  - Jamie Allen

Typesafe Director of Consulting and JAX London keynote presenter, Jamie Allen, jets in from Silicon Valley and talks about building reactive applications for Java developers, and how to do that with the Typesafe stack.  He will also compare and contrast how that is done with Java versus Scala.  

Confessions of a Startup CTO – Ted Neward

In this session, Seattle-based recent CTO and co-founder Ted Neward will talk about “making the jump” into the startup/entrepreneur world and the lessons he’s learned (and continues to learn) thus far about making that leap.  He’ll cover the technical decisions and decision-making process, and how that relates (or doesn’t) back to the world he came from—enterprise business applications. Even if you’ve never thought about getting into a startup, come on by for a discussion of the “modern web app” architecture, what he’s discovered along the way that relates purely on an architectural level, and how some of the new “startup literature” can apply equally well to in-house enterprise applications.

Little words of wisdom for the developer – Guillaume Laforge

Through some famous quotes and pictures that will make you think, Guillaume Laforge, Head of Groovy Development for SpringSource, will illustrate some simple principles that he has followed on the projects he’s worked on, and walk through the lessons he’s learned throughout the journey.  Guillaume is the official Groovy Project Manager, and the spec lead of JSR-241, the JSR that standardizes the Groovy dynamic language.  He also initiated the creation of the Grails web application framework, and founded the Gaelyk project, a lightweight toolkit for developing applications in Groovy for Google App Engine.

If these talks don't float your boat you can always take part in the Google Dart Codelab.

Google Dart Code Lab with Chris Buckett

In this self-paced, hands-on codelab, you'll learn how to build a simple single-page app for desktop and mobile browsers using Dart.  Along the way, you'll learn some of the Dart language and its libraries, create web components, perform client-side templating, use declarative dynamic DOM generation, bind data models to the UI, store data locally in your browser and optimize the app for mobile devices.  You should come along with some familiarity with HTML and CSS and object-orientated programming, but you don't need to be an expert in web programming to enjoy this codelab.  You'll also need a computer running Windows (Vista, 7, 8), Linux or Mac to run the Dart Editor.


6pm : Doors open

6pm - 7pm : Drinks

7pm : Sessions and hands-on coding
