This blog is starting a new hanginar (G+ hangout + webinar) series that will highlight solutions, frameworks, application servers, tooling, deployment, and more content focused on Java EE. These are not the usual conference-style monologue presentations, but are interactive hackathons where real working stuff is shown, and is mostly code-driven. Think of this as a mix of, and inspired by, Nighthacking (@_nighthacking), Virtual JUG (@virtualjug), and virtual JBUG (@vjbug) but focussing purely on Java EE technology.
There are so many cool things happening in the Java EE platform and ecosystem around it, and they need to be shared with the broader community, more importantly at a location where people can go back again and again. Voxxed.com has graciously offered to host all the videos and be the central place for this content.
The first such webinar, with none other than Adam Bien (@adambien), in that series just went live. It discusses how to do Continuous Deployment with Java EE 7 and Docker. It will also show how to go from “git push” to production in less than a minute, including rebooting your Docker containers and restarting all your microservices.
A tentative list of speakers is identified at github.com/javaee-samples/webinars. Each speaker is assigned an issue which allows you to ask questions. Feel free to file an issue for any other speaker that should be on the list.
What would you like to see ? Spec leads ? App servers ? Why this over that ? Design patterns and anti-patterns ? Anonymous customer use cases ? What frequency would you like to see ? Use G+ hangout on air ?
As with any new effort, we’ll learn and evolve and see what makes best sense for the Java EE community.
So what’s the mantra ? Code is king, give some love to Java EE!
