Java Week - a very informative event being held in this community. Java Week 2 was held from 19th to 23rd September 2011. Every day there are some technical sessions being held on very interesting topics in JAVA. Everyday you get chance to make yourself aware of very interesting technical topics like JEE 6, parallel programming, performance, Java in Cloud, etc.
It was nice to be the part of this event as an speaker in the unconference. I feel privileged to be a speaker in IBM Java Technology Community. It was nice to deliver the talk on Java with Groovy to the interested set of people. As a coordinator of J2EE community in MindTree, it was a great chance to go further in our collaboration with IBM Java Technology Community.
All the sessions in the Java Week 2 were full of information. The session on Java 7 was very interestingly delivered. I came to know about a lot of Java 7 features which can actually be very useful. Garbage collection - one of the very hottest and interesting topic in Java Tech space. The session was on difference policies of garbage collection provided by the IBM JDK. IBM JDK contain some smart GC policies and hence causes better performance.
The unconference was another interesting discussion on different topics like function programming, XML schema design pattern, etc. It was nice to hear from different experts from enterprise development space. Unconference was an brilliant idea introduced in Java Week 2. It was a small discussion on technical topics over 10-15 mins. It was a quick and a heavy dose of information. I really liked it.
I would expect the Java Week 3 coming soon with more exciting topics and events. I am glad to be the part of the Java Week 2 and would be waiting for the next one to come soon.
