Apache TomEE at JAX London 2011, Autumn
Our own Jonathan Gallimore presented "Apache TomEE – Java EE Web Profile on Tomcat" at JAX London this last week. It was a 50 minute presentation with a mix of slides and demos, met by a very enthusiastic band of Tomcat lovers.
Slides can be found here. Also, check out some photos of Jon in action! You'd probably never guess it's only his second time presenting and first time presenting solo! He makes us quite proud, indeed.
We'd like to give a special thanks to JAX London for their wonderful support of Apache TomEE. TomEE debuted at JAX London Spring 2011. At that point we had just started to heavily peruse certification. We were honored to be able to come back to our friends at JAX London in the fall and say, "we made it!"
Hats off to JAX for being the kind of conference that seeks out and supports growing projects like Apache TomEE. Aside from ApacheCon, JAX is Apache TomEE's second home.
JavaOne 2011 Report
It was a big year for Apache TomEE and OpenEJB at JavaOne this year. Many thanks to everyone on all sides who helped get us there, all the wonderful people who attended and of course everyone in the community that makes this project tick.
First of all, we were very excited and honored to announce Apache TomEE as a Java EE 6 Web Profile certified. The announcement went out on Tuesday of that week and set the stage for some very exciting presentations and panels throughout the week.
We had three presentations total:
And participated in three panels:
- Meet the Experts: EJB 3.2 Expert Group
- The Road to Java EE 7: Is It All About the Cloud?
- CDI Today and Tomorrow
The Apache TomEE talk was quite full with 134 attendees, only 5 less than the "CDI Today and Tomorrow" panel. All in all a very full week and one that will not soon be forgotten!
ApacheCon NA 2010, OpenEJB In-Depth
Thanks to all who attended ApacheCon NA this last week in Atlanta, GA. We had a nice little session Friday of the conference. For those that weren't able to attend or for those who made it and wanted to share the slides, we're putting them up online for all to see.
It was a real pleasure being able to present. People attending presentations are often skeptical when things first get rolling. There's a tendency for people to feel like they're getting a sales pitch despite the fact that all that we do, time and software, is given away for free. When we got into the demos, what started as reserved and scrutinizing facial expressions turned into very excited faces with big bright smiles. It was quite the transformation.
That excitement was triggered by the demos, which really drives home the importance of having more video content for people. In that vein we plan to introduce a series of Lightening Demos. Quick 2 minute screencasts so people can see individual examples run, download to debug!
