Simon fait son tour de France dans quelques JUG. Nous avons la chance de l'accueillir à Lyon pour non pas une mais DEUX sessions :
The Adventurous Developers Guide to JVM languages - 60 mins
Today there are over 50 actively worked JVM languages in existence today. Some have been ported to the JVM while others have been written specifically for the JVM. This hands on session with take an introductory (but non hello, world) look at a number of JVM languages including, Java 8, Scala, Groovy, Kotlin, Ceylon, Xtend and Clojure as well as the tooling support, discussing how and why they came about along with the evolution of the languages and distinguish the innovative languages versus those which consolidate existing features from other languages. We'll cover our initial experiences including what rocked and sucked learning each one with example code snippets of a sample HTTP Server from each language. You don't need any prior knowledge in these languages to attend the session. You will learn about why these other languages have come about, whether they are for you and hear some real life experiences of trying these languages for the first time.
The Great Application Server Debate - 60 mins
There are many application servers on the market today, but which are
right for you as a developer? This session looks at the popular
application servers—including Tomcat, TomEE, GlassFish, Jetty,
WebSphere, Oracle WebLogic Server, Liberty Profile, and JBoss—and
analyses them from the point of view of a developer. It focuses on
performance, config management, open source compliance, feature
richness, tooling, and developer productivity, among others. Come to
this session to learn about the main differences between the application
servers on the market today and understand which might be best for your
needs. App Servers will be scored in each category and the audience
will decide which App Servers rock and which… do not!
