12 November 2014

How to learn all about the latest trends of Java development and meet the real gurus of the industry at the conference SpringOne 2GX, walk through Times Square in New York City and become a genuine cowboy in the streets of Dallas?

NIX Solutions' experts

To get this you need to:

  1. learn Java;
  2. come to our friendly team;
  3. become NIX Solutions’ leading Java developer, and
  4. as a reward for a superb job get a fabulous trip to the conference SpringOne 2GX, which was held this year in Dallas, Texas.

Pivotal Software, Inc. organized the event, bringing together developers of Spring IO, Groovy, and Grails. In general, the conference was dedicated to the platform Spring.IO including frameworks and libraries. Each conference’s section was devoted to one of those frameworks and libraries.

The speakers were real rock stars of Java development. However, our experts especially noted the relaxed atmosphere that reigned at the event. The real IT guru easily communicated with the participants of the conference, sharing their contacts, and willingly answered many questions.

Besides Spring’s developers, at the conference were also so-called Java evangelists. They called so because they travel from conference to conference and set the major trends of the industry.

Reports from Spring begin with the story about micro-services and micro-service architecture was the major topic of discussion. Spring took the effort to facilitate the micro-service architecture’s development using its tools. Micro-services now especially popular because many large companies have implemented them in their products: Netflix, Amazon, etc. Micro-service architecture is used heavily in the development of applications that require the easily zoom ability. The main attention of our experts was drawn by such topics as how to implement the micro-service architecture, what are the problems encountered in its development, how to solve them, etc.

There are few ways to find something new in the world of Java EE. We can explore technologies’ release notes. We can also subscribe to the blogs or Twitter accounts of the main developers. However, it is better to gather all of these developers as speakers in one place, and they will tell you all the new and interesting. All you need is to go to the point of gathering these people and be ready to receive useful information. So, NIX Solutions’ experts believe that SpringOne 2GX on scale competes with JavaOne, and on the content and saturation outperforms its competitor, no wonder it was “to geeks” :).

When our guys went to the conference, it seemed to them that they know all about these technologies, they work with it after all. On the first day all their knowledge, scattered like pieces of the puzzle, developed into one big picture. In conclusion, thanks to SpringOne 2GX our experts have found new ways to work on their projects. Moreover, they clearly see the direction in which they should move. In other words, the guys were inspired by their guru. So now they’re ready to share the gained knowledge with their colleagues to move forward Ukrainian Java development industry.
