Arquillian is the missing link in Java EE development. Developers have long had to fend for themselves in the testing stage, burdened with bootstrapping the infrastructure on which the test depends. That's time lost, and it places a high barrier to entry on integration testing. Arquillian tears down that barrier.
Arquillian is a container-oriented test framework. It picks up where unit tests leave off, targeting the integration of application code inside a real runtime environment. Just as Java EE 5 simplified the server programming model by providing declarative services for POJOs, Arquillian equips tests with container lifecycle management and enrichment.
This talk will go behind the scenes of Arquillian, lift up the curtain and unveil the Extendable Enterprise Test Platform:

Maybe you've heard of Clojure, one of those new-fangled JVM languages. How does anybody get any work done in a language like that? What's up with all those parentheses?
If you're coming from Java and OOP, Clojure can indeed feel disorienting. In this talk we'll demystify the basics of Clojure and dissect the source of its power. Functional programming is on the rise and Clojure is indeed a functional language, but we'll learn the real secret sauce that makes cooking with Clojure fun.
We'll look at how to translate concepts you know in Java (like domain objects, interfaces, collections, and concurrency) into their natural Clojure equivalents. And more importantly, we'll learn how these components interact to make Clojure a beautiful language for building abstractions.
No prior knowledge of Clojure or functional programming is assumed... Clojure novices welcome!
Fast, fast, fast. Blazing fast! No doubt, that's the main reason to love JBoss AS 7. This talk dispells a long-standing misconception that Java EE application servers are inherently slow. With AS 7, you get to keep more memory for your applications AND you experience a 10-fold reduction in startup time over previous revisions.
In this talk, we'll dive into how this performance boost has been achieved through a clever use of parallelism and concurrency, how its modular design saves you from classloader hell and why it's such a pleasure to administer. It's everything you've wanted in an application server: blazing fast startup, a lightweight footprint, completely modular, testable, elegant administration and multi-server management mode. Under all that is a server powered by first class components developed in the JBoss Community (JBoss Modules, Hibernate, Weld, RESTEasy, Infinispan, HornetQ, etc). It's even a (J)Ruby server!
Come get your cake and eat it too.

One of the greatest benefits of Clojure is its ability to create simple, powerful abstractions that operate at the level of the problem while also operating at the level of the language.
This talk discusses a query processing engine built in Clojure that leverages this abstraction power to combine streams of data for efficient concurrent execution.

In this talk, I'll guide you through the essentials of jQuery, showing you some best practices and performance tips and tricks along the way. If you're looking for a crash course in the library, this talk might just do the trick.
In this workshop, one of the core MongoDB committers will present the fundamental principles of MongoDB, how to set up and interact with the database, and what to consider when building applications using a document-based data model. We'll contrast MongoDB with relational databases and with some NoSQL counterparts. This workshop will cover:
