Schulungstag im #JavaLand. Ich habe mir “HTML 5 from a Java EE 7 perspective” gegeben, alleine, damit ich noch mal die “andere” Welt neben dem Spring Ökosystem sehe. Den Java EE Teil von @edburns fand ich klasse, den nachmittag hätte ich mir lieber gespart.

Jetzt bin ich froh, wieder zu Hause zu sein. Schöne, aber anstrengende Woche.

And that was #JavaLand 2015 already. What a great conference, really enjoyed all day and all night.

Todays highlight was the talk about degraph by @jensschauder whose suggestions about structuring applications (see here and some addendum by @olivergierke here i’m trying to use in current projects. I really liked the cake example, slicing the cake horizontally as one is practically used to in software development for what ever reason or vertically.

@hendrikEbbers presented some ideas on mixing JavaFX and enterprise Java “stuff” which is pretty sure the way to go, at least for things like bean validation. Apart from that, i really like his skills of styling things, presentations as well as applications.

Thanks to @brunoborges and @JPeredaDnr, i finally ended up with a 2048 game on my phone smiley.gif

And then @leichtundkross talk was a very welcome, technical addition on code review.

And last but not least, i feel like never winning stuff… But here? Yesterday a suite for JavaLand 2016 and today: A ticket for JavaOne 2015 at the Oracle booth. How great is that?!

Had a great day at #JavaLand 2015. Started with a great breakfast buffet and a very entertaining and personal keynote from @lagergren. Afterwards i finally learned what Docker is all about by @ro14nd talk.

Impression from last year:

and this year (picture by @lagergren):

Had some time to meet the kind people @codecentric, i hope they like the “printen” as much as i do with the Softwerker:

Me playing around with an Oculus Rift:

Pretty interesting, i got sick trying the racing demo, i guess, i’m too short sighted for that.

I really enjoyed @rgransberger 's talk about code review and i know now, that i’m not doing everything one in my company. To quote her

At first, that often feels weird (i remember posting a JavaFX code snippet with a pyramid of lambda death to twitter and her hinting me that this is not the way to do it), but its just a great opportunity to learn.

@steveonjava had a very funny talk about the new JSR310 features and how zombies can use them to kill all the humans. Great!

@delabassee presented (action) MVC in the upcoming Java EE 8 standard and sorry, i’ve got to say, i’m not impressed. Been there with Spring years ago.

@lukaseder talked about replacing 2000 lines of Java Code with 50 lines sql. I really enjoyed that talk and was happy to meet him in person, but in the end, there are not too many people who get that necessary code in either language sometimes wink.gif. Also, had a really nice conversation with him and some other nice guys in the evening.

After a little break with Jimmy McGill on Netflix the fun started:

Nice illumination:

After riding some roller coaster we enjoyed the buffet. I ended up in the “Wintergarten”, played J-Pardy and hit the 1st prize, a suite for next years JavaLand and a nice hoodie. Awesome!

JavaLand is a great conference at a great venue with lots of things to do and lot of people to meet. Already looking forward to next year.

Arrived at #JavaLand 2015. This year in Hotel Matamba, with an african safari style flair. The kids would have loved the beduin-style tent bed.

The room was prepared with a red hat… from RedHat wink.gif

Anton hat 2 Lego Creator Sets in Hubschrauber umgebaut und wir hatten jede Menge Spaß. Abends habe ich dann mit Tina die Rakete an die Wand geschraubt, die Martin und Conny uns letzte Woche mitgebracht haben, ihr Sohn spielte nicht mehr damit… Unsere Jungens sind total begeistert:

Ansonsten hat mich seit langem noch mal ein Rechnung entsetzt. Unsere Hebepumpe im Keller war defekt, neu Gerät mit Einbau rund 1000EUR. Da war ich nicht drauf eingestellt.
