2 Sessions To Challenge You at JavaLand 2015

There is a new and interesting Java based conference that is gaining in popularity rather quickly.

It is called JavaLand and in 2015 it will be hosted on March 24-25th in Phantasialand, a theme park with great facilities located in Germany.

I am interested in bringing to you a full immersion experience with hands on workshops for xPaaS, rules, events and BPM. We will build all things cloudy and BPM enabled if these submissions are accepted.

Java island?
You have to admit, the location is pretty special so hope to join everyone with the following lab based workshops.

Mastering xPaaS - get down and dirty in the OpenShift Cloud

Ever wondered about all the new Cloud offerings out there? What is a PaaS? What is this thing Garner keeps calling xPaaS? How can I as a beginner get started in a few hours?

Whether your business is running on applications based on Java EE6, PHP or Ruby, the cloud is turning out to be the perfect environment for developing your business. There are plenty of clouds and platform-as-a-services to choose from, but where to start?

Join us for three action-packed hours of power where we'll show you how to deploy your existing application written in the language of your choice - Java, Ruby, PHP, Perl or Python, with the project of your choice - jBPM, Ceylon, Switchyard, Drools Planner, Aerogear, GateIn, Drools (Rules / BPM) and more deployed into the OpenShift PaaS in just minutes. All this and without having to rewrite your app to get it to work the way the cloud provider thinks your app should work.


If you want to learn about xPaaS and see how investing just a few hours of your time can change everything you thought you knew about putting your business applications in the cloud, this session is for you!


Do It Yourself Adventure - Add Rules & BPM To Your Toolbox

Ready to add something new to your development toolbox?

With this workshop you get a chance to do just that, unlock the power of business rules engines and business processing for your development projects. We will take you through it all step-by-step, building rules, domain specific languages, events and BPM to create a real life project of your choosing. Choose from an online web shopping cart experience or an HR employee awards approval process, it's all up to you.

This is a hands on session that takes you from zero to a fully working project based on JBoss open source software. An extra bonus will be an option to run your project on a real life PaaS experience as provided by OpenShift. No time like the present to accelerate your projects into the Cloud!

No expertise in rules or processes is required, you will be guided by the speaker and be sent homeward ready to apply what you have learned in your own projects.


Look forward to seeing you all next year!
