Doors Open 18:15pm
Over the next two months, we have arranged for two high profile speakers to come to Dublin to talk about Java 8 EE and Java 9 SE, starting with Ben Evans on July 5th.
Ben Evans is an author, speaker, consultant and educator. Ben is a Java Champion, JavaOne Rockstar Speaker award and a Java Editor at InfoQ. He represents the user community as a voting member on the Java Community Process Executive Committee.
Ben is the author of 'The Well-Grounded Java Developer', 'Java: The Legend', the new edition of 'Java in a Nutshell' and the forthcoming 'Optimizing Java'. He is a regular speaker and educator on topics such as the Java platform, systems architecture, security, performance and concurrency at companies and conferences all over the world.
His career highlights to date include Chief Architect for Listed Derivatives at DB, performance testing the Google IPO, building award-winning websites for some of Hollywood’s biggest hits of the 90s, building multi-billion dollar low-latency trading systems and designing technology to help some of the UK’s most vulnerable people.
An Update on the State of Play for Java 9
The upcoming version of Java (Java 9) is in the tech press headlines at the moment, as the flagship feature has caused unprecedented controversy within the Java Community Process (the body that approves new Java standards). In this talk, Ben Evans (JCP Executive Committee member & Java Champion) will explain what the fuss is all about, how Java 9 compares to previous versions and explore some of the long-term roadmap for Java as well as how previous versions have evolved to lead us to this point, and discuss what it all means for the working Java programmer and the future of the ecosystem.
Raffle - two licences for jClarity's Illuminate
On the night, Ben is going to raffle off a couple of free annual licenses of Illuminate (worth $1428 per annum each) to people at our meetup! Illuminate is jClarity's Machine Learning driven Java / JVM application performance analyser (phew wordage!) that organisations like Kayak, Goldman Sachs and Intel are using to save themselves a massive amount of time and money when it comes to solving performance issues.
If you are lucky enough to win a licence, you'll also get backing from their engineering team as your performance tuning mentors :-).
