Speaking Java at MWLUG this year!

I'm honored that the MWLUG crew selected my session this year. Actually, when I look at all my talks in the past decade, they have been mostly product oriented, whenever it was for IBM or more recently for Triloggroup.

But this one will be different. It is around using Java to write portable, high performance enterprise applications. I'll be first digging into the Java platform (languages, runtimes, compilers...) to understand what is the Java platform. Then I'll illustrate portable Java applications from real use cases using state of the art tools. I'll be targeting web, mobile and more generally IOT devices. If time permits, I might escape from the enterprise software and invade a little bit the consumer market.

Java has been around for more than 20 years. During these years, it evolved a lot to match the new requirements, which makes it the #1 development platform.

Let's have fun altogether @MWLUG!
