JavaOne 2016

As usual went to JavaOne.   Three talks,  three days on the IBM booth.  Feels like only three hours of sleep.

First talk was my talk on Cybercrime  (slides on slideshare)   Good audience and it appeared to go down well 🙂

Second talk was a fun talk about ways of interacting with computers sans keyboard and mouse.   Catcherly titled  “Mind Control to Major Tom:Is It Time to Put Your EEG Headset On?” this too went down well!   It was Luc’s (my co-presenter) first time at JavaOne.

Slides are also on Slideshare 

Last talk (phew) was immediately after the Mind Control one and in Parc 55 (as against Hilton) so a quick dash to meet up with Daniel Bryant by co-presenter for  “Java, the Cloud, Containers: Migrating Without the Tiers (or Tears)”      This talk is about what you have to do to move into the Cloud.  I covered the “why Cloud is different” aspect of the talk. Daniel covered a series of usecases from his personal experiences that showed how to make the move and avoid some of the pitfalls.   Slides are here

JavaOne 2016 has been the most busy conference I’ve been to for some time.  The IBM stand – where I brought the IBM Watson Furby – was always busy with people asking about Watson, Liberty, Game-on etc.
