Image SpeakerJava with Zeroturnaround's Simon Maple
2017-12-06
Our December event is special! We are hosting Java Champion and JavaOne Rockstar, Simon Maple, Director of Developer Relations at ZeroTurnaround, Virtual JUG founder and London Java Community co-leader and RebelLabs author. Oh, and Duke’s Choice award winner! ##Simon is presenting.... # **Do You Really Get Class Loaders** ##and # **Productive and Effective Development with Spring and Java EE** ##Doors Open 18:15 (evening session) . Simon is an experienced speaker, having presented at JavaOne, JavaZone, Jfokus, DevoxxUK, DevoxxFR, JavaZone, JMaghreb and many more including many JUG tours. His passion is around user groups and communities. When not traveling, Simon enjoys spending quality time with his family, cooking and eating great food. You can follow him on twitter at [**@sjmaple**](https://twitter.com/sjmaple), [**@virtualjug**](https://twitter.com/virtualjug) and [**@zeroturnaround**](https://twitter.com/zeroturnaround) . ##**Do You Really Get Class Loaders** Class loaders are at the core of the Java language. Java EE containers, OSGi, NetBeans modules, Tapestry 5, Grails, and many others use class loaders heavily. Yet if something went wrong, would you know how to solve it? This session takes a tour of the Java class loading mechanism, from both the JVM and developer points of view. It looks at typical class loading problems and how to solve them. ClassNoDefError, IncompatibleClassChangeError, LinkageError, and many others are symptoms of specific things going wrong that you can usually find and fix. For each problem, the presentation goes through a hands-on demo with a corresponding solution. It also takes a look at how and why class loaders leak and how you can remedy that. ##**Productive and Effective Development with Spring and Java EE** This live coding session shines some light on a range of productivity tools that make software development a pleasure rather than a chore. Simon will live-code two applications. The first, a Java EE application with JBoss Forge that uses JPA, Bean Validation, REST, and Angular, is tested with Arquillian from within JBoss Forge. You’ll see how a Java EE microservice can be developed in Forge and run with JBoss Swarm. The second application is developed on Spring Boot, and you’ll see how to develop and run a Spring application with JRebel. You’ll learn how to write code productively with tools designed for developers. . ##**REGISTRATION NOTES** The Dublin Java User Group meetups are designed to enhance the knowledge of developers and technology professionals. To reduce the number of people who do not show up, there is a small booking fee. But sure, you'll get that back in knowledge, beer and pizza! We also offer a limited number of free tickets.

Image SpeakerJava 9 and the Eclipse Collection with Nikhil Nanivadekar
2017-11-28
Towards the end of November, we are hosting the lead of the Eclipse Collections project Nikhil Nanivadekar as he whistle stops around Europe and beyond. Nikhil, who is also a VP in Goldman Sachs, is a regular sight at the world's top Java conferences. ##Nikhil is presenting.... # **How to Make a Project Java 9-Compatible** ##and # **Collections.compare: JDK, Eclipse, Guava, Apache...** ##Doors Open 18:15 (evening session) . Nikhil Nanivadekar is a Vice President in Private Wealth Management in the Technology division of Goldman Sachs, and is also the project lead and committer for Eclipse Collections. He graduated in 2012 from University of Utah with a Masters in Mechanical Engineering with specialization in Robotics and Controls. He has presented at JavaOne, DevoxxUS and Java User Group meetups. He is passionate about robotics has conducted robotics workshops at JCrete4Kids, JavaOne4Kids and Devoxx4Kids. You can follow him on twitter at [**@NikhilNanivade**](https://twitter.com/NikhilNanivade) . ##**How to Make a Project Java 9-Compatible** Java 9 brings numerous changes that might break existing applications. This presentation is a case study of making a third-party Java Collections library (Eclipse Collections) Java 9–compatible. You will get an overview of all the steps taken and the evolution of the final, Java 9–compatible product. These steps are essentially similar to those you might have to take to upgrade your application to use JDK 9. The session covers available tooling and simple yet practical tips and tricks that will help you in the upgrade process. ##**Collections.compare: JDK, Eclipse, Guava, Apache...** Collections are a staple in any programming language: the need to collect, sort, or iterate over values is needed by nearly all developers. The Java language introduced the Collections framework long ago. It has plenty to offer, but many find it lacking: the number of collection libraries as active open source projects demonstrates the need for something else. This session does a holistic comparison of the most-common collections (pun intended!) frameworks, what they have to offer, and what you should consider for your next project. It also shows common programmer use cases; how each library handles them; and the impact on memory, processing power, and ease of use/coding. Come and let us help you choose the right bag for your tricks! . ##**REGISTRATION NOTES** The Dublin Java User Group meetups are designed to enhance the knowledge of developers and technology professionals.

Image SpeakerTop Ways to Deliver Java Code to the Cloud
2017-10-31
Our final October meetup is presented by Las Vegas-based Microsoft Developer Advocate Brian Benz, showing some of the easiest ways for Java Developers to deliver their code to the cloud using Linux command line tools. Brian is a Senior Developer Advocate at Microsoft, helping Java developers to get the most out of Azure. Before Joining Microsoft, he was a solution architect, consultant, developer, author and presenter at IBM, Deloitte, and other companies. You can follow him on twitter at [**@bbenz**](https://twitter.com/bbenz) . ##**Top Ways to Deliver Your Java Code to the Cloud** Brian will highlight the easiest ways for Java developers to deliver their code to the cloud and the best ways to reliably make updates and maintain production cloud code. The focus will be on real-world examples using Linux command line tools, open source tools such as Jenkins, and other free SDKs and tools available on GitHub. The examples, tools and demos that he shows will be applicable to any cloud platform, and all are available on GitHub. He will show Microsoft Azure running the samples - this is a technical talk that will focus on the code. . ##**REGISTRATION NOTES** The Dublin Java User Group meetups are designed to enhance the knowledge of developers and technology professionals.
