The Bleeding Edge

Enterprise Java developers value reliability and stability, but what happens to your technology stack if you’re willing to take a risk? At jClarity we’re running production systems using Html 5, Angular.js, vertx, Mongo, groovy and deploying using chef. Its been an interesting ride: some things worked really well and some things don’t.

Come along and find out what we’d recommend and what we’d avoid with hindsight. We’ll also talk about how we ended up with such a diverse stack and how to make technology choices in a fairer way. We’ve made the mistakes so you don’t have to.

Who should attend?

Any level of developer

Martijn Verburg (aka 'the Diabolical Developer'), CTO of jClarity, herds Cats in the Java/open source communities and is constantly humbled by the creative power to be found there!

Currently resides in London where he co-leads the London JUG (a JCP EC member), runs the Adopt a JSR and Adopt OpenJDK programmes and drinks good beer at his local pub. You can find him online facilitating development of FOSS projects (PCGen and Ikasan), moderating at the Javaranch or discussing (ranting about?) subjects on the Programmers Stack Exchange.

He's become a regular (diabolical) speaker at conferences on Java, FOSS and software development. His "The Well-Grounded Java Developer" title with Ben Evans was a Java/JVM best seller in 2012/13.

Martijn was recognised as an official Java Champion in 2012 for services to the Java community.

Richard Warburton is a software developer who loves solving complex problems, but actively challenges how much of software development is dealing with day-to-day trivialities. Having obtained a PhD in the area of compiler optimizations and static analysis, he has been applying his abilities in industry. Initially on bytecode analysis software, and more recently on Java performance tuning tools. He actively involves himself in the London Java Community, and its Java Community Process Committee. He has been helping with the push to improve and complete the JSR 310 API (Date and Time) and the expand community engagement with JSR 335 (Lambdas). Richard is currently a Principal Engineer at jClarity and is writing the Java 8 Lambdas title for O'Reilly publishing.
