Do you have some heretical questions regarding Java (EE), architecture, patterns or design? I will try to answer them - during the following events:
- Real World Java EE Patterns and Best Practices in Zurich (08.09). Will also definitely take place - already 46 registrations! But: don't worry, I set the max number of attendees to 999 :-). The last time there were too many registrations, so that we had to repeat the workshop. I will loosely cover the contents from book during the workshop, but the ultimate aim will be to explain the essential and maintainable Java EE 5/6 architectures (JSF 2, EJB 31, JPA, JCA, JMS, REST in concert with AJAX, Domain Driven Design, SOA and RIA) with lot of source code and tools. The content of this workshop was chosen by the participants in last years workshop in rapperswil. We will try to kill as many superfluous and bloated patterns, best practices and frameworks, as only possible.
- Xtreme Lightweight Architectures (XLAs) with Java EE 6 (JUG Dresden) - free event. This event is open ended - at least we can spend some time in a pub afterwards - in case you have still some questions - or even worse - you still believe that Java EE is bloated :-)
- Java EE 5 and 6 Patterns 5-day Workshop in Hamburg (25.10. - 29.10). We will have enough time to develop a whole application from scratch - even in different variants (REST, SOA, Domain Driven Design).
- (Ultra) Lightweight Java EE 5/6 - the killer-platform for lean and maintainable applications in Darmstadt (28.09-30.09.09).
