Presentation (27/1) : 97 Things Every Programmer Should Know
Modern programmers have a lot on their minds. Programming languages, programming techniques, development environments, tools, development process, deadlines, meetings, software architecture, design patterns, team dynamics, code, requirements, bugs, code quality. And more. A lot. The 97 Things Every Programmer Should Know project has collected together the wisdom of many contributors to offer a distilled snapshot of what every programmer should know. This session draws from this collection to present some highlights and useful advice.
Tutorial (26/1) : GOOD: Good Object-Oriented Development
Given that object orientation underpins modern programming languages, it would be expected that anyone using languages such as Java would also know about OO. In one sense this is true, but there is more to effective modern object-oriented development than just creating a few objects and calling a few methods. Many developers have not had the exposure to effective object-oriented practice that would allow them to avoid common pitfalls.
Although OO is far from being a new approach (think Sergeant Pepper), and it's also far from being obscure, its mainstream adoption by programmers and programming languages alike is not always as effective as it could be. This session puts a number of key concepts on a firmer footing, highlighting common pitfalls in OO practice — such as abuse of inheritance, simplistic getter/setter interfaces, patternitis, overuse of singleton objects, weak use of value objects — and emphasising techniques that promote an easier life — such as loose coupling, unit testability, pattern-based design thinking, the identification and use of value objects, incremental and sufficient design.

Presentation (27/1) : A Java 7 State of the Union
Java SE 7 looks like it will mark a completely new era for Java. Numerous changes are being proposed and worked feverishly on by several parties: a complete modularization of the platform together with support for modules in the Java language, new support for foreign programming languages, changes to the Java language itself, a completely new garbage collector and other changes that could change the face of Java quite radically. In this session, we'll take a close look at the state of the java union, what will be included and not in JDK 7, what the new features look like and what Oracle's acquisition of Sun means for Java.

He regularly coaches and trains together with Jeff Sutherland and Mary Poppendieck.
Henrik's book Scrum and XP from the Trenches has over 150,000 readers and is one of the most popular books on the topic, his second book "Kanban and Scrum - making the most of both" attempts to broaden the view further.
Tutorial (26/1) : Kanban - A Lean Approach to Agile Software Development
Kanban is an approach to agile software development that focuses on visualizing the workflow and increasing flow by limiting work in progress. Although Scrum is still the most popular agile method, Kanban has quickly proven to be an excellent complement or replacement in cases where Scrum is too difficult or simply not suitable. Kanban is highly flexible and strongly emphasizes evolution over revolution.
In this tutorial Henrik will go through the basics of Kanban, using many pictures and examples. He will also illustrate the similarities and differences between Kanban and Scrum, and how these techniques can be combined to get the best of both.

Utvecklingsavdelningen på bwin Games i Stockholm består av ca 150 personer som i huvudsak arbetar med pokerutveckling i Java.
Presentation (27/1) : Prestanda, skalbarhet och tillgänglighet för stora system
Internetpoker är en av de mest avancerade realtidsapplikationerna du kan tillhandahålla över nätet. Du behöver inte bara bygga ett tillräckligt snabbt system, det måste vara tillräckligt snabbt oavsett antalet användare och dessutom tillgängligt utan avbrott. bwin har nyligen releasat en ny generation av sitt pokersystem som lägger ribban högt med avseende på icke-funktionella krav. När du bygger en tjänst som används av 10 miljoner användare och 45 000 samtidiga spelare så måste du ha tänkt igenom din arkitektur!
Pokersystemet är helt byggt med hjälp av Java i olika smaker, från Spring-baserade fristående applikationer i JavaSE, via JavaEE-applikationer som körs på JBoss, till Coherence-klustrade egenutvecklade serverplattformar. Denna presentation går igenom teorier för hur man bör tänka kring prestanda, skalbarhet och tillgänglighet på alla nivåer i ett sådant system. Teorier som kommer att beröras är exempelvis funktionell nedbrytning, CAP och BASE/ACID. Även topologier, redundanta system och proprietära vs kommersiella system diskuteras. Vidare kommer applikationer från bwins pokersystem att användas som exempel. För varje exempel kommer dess egenskaper att diskuteras utifrån teorierna, vilka krav applikationen löser samt kända problem.
Tutorial (26/1) : Enterprise Integration Patterns i praktiken
Enterprise Integration Patterns (EIP) beskrevs allra första gången på ett utförligt och standardiserat sätt i boken med samma namn av Hohpe/Woolf. EIP är en uppsättning designmönster för att integrera system på ett meddelandeorienterat sätt. Dessa mönster är baserade på praktisk erfarenhet av integration och varje mönster erbjuder en lösning på ett specifikt designproblem. EIP är i sin grund teknologioberoende och kan implementeras med olika teknologier såsom SOAP, JavaEE eller .NET. Denna presentation kommer att ge en introduktion till EIP, dvs bakgrund, motivering och grundläggande designmönster. Därefter tittar vi närmre på två olika EIP-implementationer, nämligen öppenkällkodsramverken Apache Camel och Spring Integration. Kodexempel för de tidigare presenterade EIP-mönsterna kommer att gås igenom för båda implementationerna.
Slutligen kommer vi att titta närmre på en applikation från bwin som baserats på EIP och som används för att bearbeta pokerinformation i realtid och distribuera denna till 30 mottagare. Vi kommer att gå igenom applikationens krav, arkitektur och implementation med hjälp av EIP för *både* Camel och Spring Integration. Båda dessa EIP-implementationerna har nämligen använts i applikationen - nu får du reda på både hur och varför!

Presentation (27/1) : Introduction to Cloud Computing
Cloud Computing sounds fluffy, so what are the real-life benefits? And how can I start using the Cloud today, in my own projects? The first step: Getting more power at a low low cost How can we use the cloud today, by moving parts of our application or environment to the cloud? We'll share our hand-on experiences with developing using the cloud for everything from testing to deployment. The next step: Scaling out in the cloud The cloud brings new issues and concerns. How do you best store data if it's stored in distributed data centers? How can you ensure data consistency when ACID-style transactions are your biggest bottleneck? How will it affect your architecture that servers are added at any time?

Presentation (27/1) : 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 when something goes wrong, would you know how to solve it? In this session we'll take a tour of the Java class loading mechanism, both from JVM and developer point of view. We'll see how different delegation systems are built, how synchronization works, what is the difference between finding classes and resources, what wrong assumptions has been made and are now supported. Next we will look at typical problems that you get with class loading 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 we'll go through a hands on demo with a corresponding solution. Finally we'll take a look at the complicated class loading mechanisms like the ones used in OSGi and Tapestry 5. We'll look in detail at the benefits they have and problems they might cause.
Quickie (27/1) : How to save 3-7 weeks a year!
This summer, over 1100 developers reported that they waste an average of one month per year waiting for builds and redeploys. In 10 minutes, we'll show you how to get that time back, without the need to re-engineer your applications or change the way your team works. It's quick, it's easy, it integrates with Maven, Eclipse, IntelliJ IDEA and Netbeans, supports all servlet and EJB containers, Spring framework, Struts, Stripes and Google Web Toolkit, and it pays for itself in two weeks -- meet JRebel 2.0 (formerly JavaRebel).

We'll explore Development by Intention, the benefits of truly deep and intuitive refactoring, Polyglot programming with cross-language support and error prevention with static code analysis as well as commenting on the value of highly intelligent editing, debugging and code assistance - all with supportive examples and code-based demonstrations using IntelliJ IDEA. To wrap up, we'll look at ways to enjoy coding as much as possible.
Presentation (27/1) : Groovy actors and concurrent dataflow with GParallelizer
Low-level concurrency handling is usually hard to get right. And it's not much fun either. In this hands-on session we will go through the concurrency options that GParallelizer library, an open-source concurrency library for Groovy, gives to your Groovy applications. We'll cover asynchronous collection processing, actors and other concepts, which aim to make your Groovy code concurrent with little effort. We'll create and show code examples in Groovy illustrating the principles of actors, parallel arrays and dataflow concurrency, while leveraging the DSLs offered by GParallelizer.

Fifteen years ago, Java steamed into the software development consciousness. Since those early days, the Java platform has shown remarkable resiliency in adapting to changes in technology and markets over time. This success is powered by a broad and active community of developers and users. Today the Java platform faces new challenges. We will examine these challenges and the keys to meeting them in order to broaden Java adoption, improve its competitiveness and ensure its future.
Pär Sikö Martin Gunnarsson, Epsilon
Pär Sikö är en passionerad Javautvecklare som envist håller sig på klientsidan men som vid ett fåtal tillfällen lockats över till serversidan, dock utan något lyckat resultat. Pärs ledord är "Gränssnitt ska vara snygga och inget ska lämnas åt slumpen" samt "En applikation som inte är tilltalande är samma sak som en icke fungerande applikation". Trots ett uttalat grafikfokus saknar Pär helt talang för form, färg och layout och ses därför sällan utan en kompanjon som behärskar grafisk design. Pär har jobbat som Javakonsult i många år och på senare tid har mer och mer av fritiden gått åt för att utveckla feedjii, en feedläsare skriven i Java och Swing.
Bra programmerare är ofta värdelösa designers (och tvärt om), men Martin Gunnarsson har en fot i varje läger och trivs bra med det. GUI-programmering och gränssnittsdesign passar honom synnerligen väl eftersom de är en härlig kombination av grafik och kod. Martin är en sann perfektionist, och blir sällan helt nöjd med sitt arbete, åtminstone inte någon längre tid. Kvalitet och genomtänkt design gör honom glad, medan fula applikationer och webbsidor har precis motsatt effekt. Martin har tillsammans med den tekniskt vassare kollegan Pär Sikö utvecklat feedläsaren Feedjii, som en plattform att testa nya GUI-idéer på.
Presentation (27/1) : JavaFX Designer Developer Workflow
Many JavaFX presentations focus on what the code looks like and how the language works, but they rarely show how to actually get started. JavaFX is said to be both designer and developer friendly but how do you get the designers involved? In this presentation we'll show what a typical JavaFX workflow may look like, starting with a fresh installation of the JavaFX Production Suite and Adbobe Photoshop, and going all the way to a complete application.
Anders Hammar, Devoteam Quaint
Anders is a Maven expert, software architect, and CTO of Devoteam Quaint, working professionally with Java for more than ten years.

In his profession, Anders does Maven training and he has earlier talked about Maven at Øredev and Javaforum (Swedish JUG). Being a true believer of open source, Anders is also highly active within the Maven community.
Tutorial (26/1) : Advanced Maven Techniques
Apache Maven is a software project management and comprehension tool. Based on the concept of a project object model (POM), Maven can manage a project's build, reporting and documentation from a central piece of information. The theme of Maven is to standardize the build process and has successfully done so, leading to it being close to de facto standard in the open source world and within the enterprises. This session will focus on advanced dependency management, plugin management and lifecycle customization. All topics will be explained in theory and also shown in practice. Targeted audience is developers with knowledge and understanding of Maven basics such as the pom, artifact coordinates (GAV), the lifecycle concept, and Maven plugins and goals.
Felipe Gaúcho, Netcetera AG
Felipe Gaúcho is Senior Software Engineer with MsC in Artificial Intelligence and more than ten years of Java hands-on experience. He is a well known Brazilian JUG leader and open-source evangelist specialized in Java EE technologies. Felipe dedicated the last couple of years researching SOA applications implemented with the Glassfish Portfolio technologies. A result from that experience is a set of Dos & Don'ts of publishing RESTful web-services produced with the Jersey Framework consuming a EJB3.x business layer. When he is not coding, he prefers to listen reggae and travel around with his lovely wife Alena and his son Rodrigo.
Presentation (27/1) : Domain Driven REST Web-Services
RESTful Web-Services and Domain Drive Design (DDD) prevailed upon the "SOA Era", and now it is time to join those powerful techniques towards more agility for the Java developers. This session will demonstrate how to expose a Domain Model through REST-API based on the Java EE specification and the Glassfish technologies. The session will show a real world project where a business domain modeled as JPA Entities is serialized through a REST-API implemented with the Jersey framework. The server side constraints like security and robustness will be explained and proved good enough to be adopted in production. The special highlights of the session are the partial visibility of data produced with a minimum code, full data security and the serialization of data using XML and JSON formats. This presentation is a result of an open-source project being developed by the speaker, and the source code and artifacts demonstrated during the session will be fully available for the audience after the presentation. Java EE developers and architects are the target audience, specially the ones with previous experience in producing RESTful web-services.

Presentation (27/1) : The Pair Programming Show
Did you ever wonder what makes pair programming tick? Or maybe why it didn't work well when your team tried it? Are you considering trying it but not sure it it's worth it? Then, this play is for you.
The play is about a team that are just about to start implementing pair-programming as a daily practice in their agile work. You will follow the team and its members as they go through different stages and struggles from doing no pair programming to getting pair programming to be a truly productive way for them to work. You will see the anti-patterns in practice so you can recognize them in your own environment, and you will learn about the small subtle things that makes the difference between wasting time and a high productivity. This play will give you everything a good play should have; laughs, anger, tears - and a lot of lessons learned.
Get your popcorn ready and open your mind. Pair programming can be a great productivity boost - if it's done right.

Gaming products include sports betting, live betting, casino, poker, lotteries, bingo and soft games. Customers bet via websites in 27 languages, and increasingly via mobile phones and other mobile devices.
In this session you will learn about Unibet's continuously ongoing rearchitecture initiatives from a fairly typical monolithic database-centric architecture into a highly scalable one based on best-in-class open source software such as Java, Spring, MySQL, Terracotta, RabbitMQ and Kaazing, while at the same time substantially reducing cost. We have transitioned to a modern front-end architecture (XHTML 1.0 strict, CSS 2.1, YUI, caching, compression, image spriting, CDN striping, etc.) backed by functionally partitioned application- and data tiers. For scaling out, we have simple use-cases where read-only replicas are fine, and others where we use a partitioned, in-memory, domain repository with an eventually consistent database. This session will also cover our use of key technologies such as content delivery networks and DDoS protection strategies.

Presentation (27/1) : Deep dive on the Java EE 6
J2EE was reliable and scalable but somewhat verbose and sometimes inflexible. Java EE 5 adopted new principles (POJOs, annotations, default behavior) to ease the development paradigm and was certainly the biggest release ever. Java EE 6 also has a lot in store for server-side development - some more ease of development, a web profile, unified injection, lighter-weight components, RESTful integration, and major enhancements to the EJB, JPA and JSF specifications. This presentation will offer an overview of Java EE 6, new EJBs, simplified packaging, improved persistence layer, new API for RESTful services, a validation framework, a radical simplification of the web layer and ... many other improvements.
Tutorial (26/1) : The Java EE 6 Platform
J2EE was reliable and scalable but somewhat verbose and sometimes inflexible. Java EE 5 adopted new principles (POJOs, annotations, default behavior) to ease the development paradigm and was certainly the biggest release ever. Java EE 6 also has a lot in store for server-side development - some more ease of development, a web profile, unified injection, lighter-weight components, RESTful integration, and major enhancements to the EJB, JPA and JSF specifications.
This tutorial presentation will offer an overview of Java EE 6 through a run-down of the many new features. We will build an application from scratch via incremental steps. This will translate into a dozen demos each illustrating new features : managed beans, EJB 3.1 packaging and testing, JPA improvements, JSF with facelets, composite components and Ajax, exposing RESTful resources, and more.

In the past few years, Ruby has grown from an oddity to a world-class programming language. There are hundreds of thousands of Ruby developers worldwide. But many of us live on the Java platform. Can we take advantage of Ruby's beauty without leaving the Java world behind? Yes we can! JRuby provides an excellent implementation of Ruby that can run Rails and other frameworks alongside your existing Java libraries and apps. You can build Rails apps that integrate with existing Java code, write components in Ruby, build desktop applications, and much more. JRuby provides excellent two-way integration with Java, allowing you to start using it today.
In this talk, we will explore JRuby, from getting set up to deploying real apps. We'll construct a small Rails application, front-end it with a GUI application, and deploy both. We'll play with JRuby's Java integration capabilities. And we'll explore a few unique features of JRuby like support for C libraries. By the end of this talk, you'll be ready to use JRuby for your own apps without leaving the Java platform behind.

Presentation (27/1) : The Benefits of Graph Databases
Most applications today handle data that is deeply associative, i.e. structured as graphs (networks). The most obvious example of this is social networking sites, but even tagging systems, content management systems and wikis deal with inherently hierarchical or graph-shaped data. This turns out to be a problem because it?s difficult to deal with recursive data structures in traditional relational databases. In essence, each traversal along a link in a graph is a join, and joins are known to be very expensive. Furthermore, with user-driven content, it is difficult to pre-conceive the exact schema of the data that will be handled. Unfortunately, the relational model requires upfront schemas and makes it difficult to fit this more dynamic and ad-hoc data. A graph database uses nodes, relationships between nodes and key-value properties instead of tables to represent information. This model is typically substantially faster for associative data sets and uses a schema-less, bottoms-up model that is ideal for capturing ad-hoc and rapidly changing data. This session will introduce an open source, high-performance, transactional and disk-based graph database called “Neo4j” (http://neo4j.org), which frequently outperforms relational backends with >1000x for many increasingly important use cases.

Quickie (27/1) : Det fronetiska ledarskapet
Ett effektivt ledarskap tycker många är A och O för att lyckas. Men vad betyder det för mjukvaruprojekt och organisationer som sysslar med intensivt tankearbete. Kan man lära sig att leda? Kan man lära sig att bli ledd? Vad är det som egentligen spelar roll i ledarskapet? Efter att ha lyssnat på detta tal kan åskådarna ha lärt sig: - Varför det är viktigt att skapa förutsättningar för ledarskap - Vilka grundförutsättningar behövs för ledarskap - Att leda genom exempel - Skillnaden mellan olika typer av kunskap och hur den förvärvas - Ledarskap är aktiviteter.

Presentation (27/1) : Taylorism och massproduktion - gamla tankesätt hindrar effektiv systemutveckling
* Varför delar vi på drift och utveckling? * Varför ritar systemarkitekter UML diagram, väljer ramverk och kan inte minnas när de skrev kod senast? * Varför räknar vi hur många kodrader varje utvecklare skrivit? Fredrick Taylors teorier och dess efterföljare sätter än idag normen för hur våra organisationer styrs och organiseras. Det som vi ser som normala och vanliga sätt att organisera arbetet försvårar i själva verket effektivt alla försök att införa agila arbetssätt, vilka istället bygger på empiriska processer med självorganiserande och tvärfunktionella team. Föredraget pekar ut dessa försvårande mönster och dess effekter samt visar hur man undviker dem för att inte missa de stora fördelarna med ett agilt arbetssätt.
Presentation (27/1) : Android och TDD
Tröskeln till Androidutveckling är låg för Javautvecklare, då Android har stöd för en stor del av standard-Java. Men hur kan man skriva automatiska enhets- och funktionstester? Föredraget visar hur man kan utveckla en Android applikation med testdriven utveckling.

Tutorial (26/1) : Behaviour-Driven Development: Writing Software that Matters
Behavior-driven development (BDD) is an evolution of the ideas behindagile software delivery. With its roots in test-driven development,domain-driven design, and automated acceptance testing, BDD focuses onthe ways an application is expected to work - its behaviour. Byconstantly reflecting on the varied points of view of differentstakeholders, BDD helps ensure that product owners and the developmentteam are in sync on what is really needed and what to work on next.
In this highly-interactive session, Dan North introduces theprinciples behind BDD and describes how it works in practice. He provides an overview of the methodology of BDD: understanding yourdomain and who your stakeholders are, identifying and exploring requirements, automating acceptance criteria, and delivering workingand tested software. Dan then looks at the nature of change and describes how to implement BDD in different contexts, including applying it to an in-flight project, managing distributed orlarge-scale development, and working with legacy systems. Dan encourages both experienced and novice agile managers and practitioners to join this session and bring with them their current challenges - and war stories.
Presentation (27/1) : Why Your Agile Roll-Out is Failing
You read the books. You went to the talks. You even paid for the 3 day course. Then you rolled out Agile across the organization. What could possibly go wrong? Why, after 18 months, are you not seeing the better-faster-cheaper results they guaranteed you? And where can you get your money back? Rather than paying for yet another Agile consultant to come in and tell you how you're doing it all wrong, come along to Dan's talk about the most common failure modes he encounters in Agile adoption.

Presentation (27/1) : Next Generation Development Infrastructure: Maven, M2Eclipse, Nexus & Hudson
All development organizations eventually converge on a set of tools to reduce costs, lower onboarding time, and leverage knowledge in strong communities to create standard processes. To this end we see in many organizations the emergence of a standard development stack consisting of Maven, M2Eclipse, Nexus & Hudson.
In this talk Jason will discuss the future of Maven and specifically Maven 3.x, the rapidly approaching M2Eclipse 1.0 release, the recent Nexus 1.4 release and roadmap, and changes that have been made to Hudson to provide better interoperability with Maven. Sonatype itself leverages this stack on a daily basis and this discussion will focus not only on the tools individually, but how they can work together to create a best practices approach to building and delivering your software in your organization.

Presentation (27/1) : RIA Security - Broken By Design
Rich Internet Applications (RIA) provide desktop-like usability with web deployment model. The benefits of this combination are obvious and RIA is now common a choice for the presentation layer in many applications. Unfortunately, moving logic from the server to an untrusted client may open up security holes that would not be present in the page-oriented "Web 1.0" architecture. In this presentation we will take a look at client- and server-side RIA architectures from the security angle, identify some of the most common security problems and discuss strategies for avoiding them. We'll go through some example applications implemented in both architectures and demonstrate the problems. Java-based RIA frameworks, Google Web Toolkit and Vaadin, are used in the examples, but the demonstrated principles are applicable to most other frameworks and languages as well.

Presentation (27/1) : HTML 5 Communications - The New Network Framework for the Web
The HTML5 specification will clearly change the way in which we build applications for the Web. Google, Apple, Mozilla, Opera, Palm, et al, have all made large strides in supporting various components of HTML 5. The Communications section of this specification describes an exciting collection of new types of network communication mechanisms that will provide the underpinnings of the next generation of web applications. * WebSocket - A full-duplex single-socket connection over the web * Server-Sent Events - A formalization of web "push" but without polling * Cross-Domain Resource Sharing - Connect to multiple domains without a portal server * Inter-Document Messaging - Send messages among iframes on a page These features bring bi-directional, event-driven connectivity to web applications, remove the dependency on polling, allows the browser to be the aggregator of information across domains and facilitates mashups within the browser. We will provide an in-depth look into the use of these features particularly WebSocket and Server-Sent Events. And we'll discuss the techniques and technologies required to build Web applications with these new tools. We will also cover possible network architectures to integrate message brokers, popular data feeds and cloud applications using WebSockets.

Quickie (27/1) : Practical Web Development with Language-Oriented Programming
Modern web developers face a ridiculous choice of technologies and frameworks for building web applications. However, most of these frameworks are based upon general-purpose programming languages. Domain-specific languages (DSLs) are still a rarity in a web developer's toolset. JetBrains is set to change that with Meta Programming System (MPS). Complemented by a stack of Java-inspired domain-specific languages for database and web development, MPS enables JetBrains developers to create highly competitive real-world applications.
