- UI Performance Monitoring - Terry Parker
This is the type of technical talk that should immediately have an impact on how I work. Anyone who has done any user interface development has certainly hit performance problems, and many standard profiles / techniques simply don’t work.
- A journey of getting HTML to work inside Eclipse - Kris De Volder [Pivotal], Martin Lippert [Pivotal]
Though SWT represents the defacto way of writing UIs in Eclipse, I believe that the future of the Eclipse IDE needs to include HTML as a main way to author plugins. As such I'm looking forward to hear from people that have successfully used HTML, JS, CSS in Eclipse and learn from their successes and failures.
Plan to attend the Hackathon on Tuesday evening!
Join forces with Eclipse project leads and committers to improve your favorite Eclipse project. Our goal for the evening is to convert all hackathon participants into Eclipse contributors. Experienced Eclipse committers and leads help you choose something to work on, answer your questions, and guide you through the contribution process. Some nicely scoped bugs to work on will be provided by project leads. Or you can go your own way and surprise us with something more exciting.
I’m really looking forward to hear Alex Buckley talking about Lambda. It’s one of the key features of the upcoming Java 8. Together with the library enhancements this forms the baseline for a whole new way of writing Java code. I’ve used similar constructs in other languages before. Having and seeing it in Java will be great.
- Apache Stratos - Building a PaaS using OSGi and Equinox - Paul Fremantle [WSO2]
I have long been interested in how OSGi and Equinox can be better utilized in the cloud. I look forward to hearing more about the Apache Stratos project and how the project is using OSGi and Equinox as well as how it supports multi-tenancy.
