James Governor is Principal Analyst and co-founder of RedMonk. He is widely regarded as an authoritative voice in the industry, a developer advocate who advises enterprises, start-ups and major tech firms on development and community strategy.
In his keynote address, James will give an overview on where Java stands today, having tracked its meteoric rise to become a critical part of IT infrastructure, and the key enterprise development language. Today Java is a mature environment – but the question is whether Java is now poised for a new period of growth, based on Big Data and web company adoption, or a period of managed, or dramatic, decline? He will assess the impact of Oracle’s acquisition of Sun, the continuing effect of community, the strength of JVM language approaches, and some forthright assessment on what he believes the future holds for Java...

Oracle has initiated a renewal of Java and one of the more important goals is to make it easier to write concurrent software that makes use of all cores in modern hardware. This will require changes both to the language Java as well as its virtual machine. I will describe the latest design that we are working on and demonstrate what can be achieved today using the JRockit JVM and how we can improve concurrency in javac itself.

The NoSQL movement has stormed onto the development scene, and it’s left a few developers scratching their heads, trying to figure out when to use a NoSQL database instead of a regular database, much less which NoSQL database to use. In this session, we’ll examine the NoSQL ecosystem, look at the major players, how the compare and contrast, and what sort of architectural implications they have for software systems in general.

Introduction to mapping, geographic information systems and geolocalization. After covering basics like layers and projections, data formats and standards we will look at open source tools and Java libraries which can help you to build working solutions.
The JMS standard is 9 years old - but outside the Java community innovation is happening. The AMQP standard with implementations like RabbitMQ is gaining more and more traction. This session explains the standard and its advantages. It will also show how an AMQP application can be implemented using Java.

The Disruptor is new open-source concurrency framework, designed as a high performance mechanism for inter-thread messaging. It was developed at LMAX as part of our efforts to build the world's fastest financial exchange. Using the Disruptor as an example, this talk will explain of some of the more detailed and less understood areas of concurrency, such as memory barriers and cache coherency. These concepts are often regarded as scary complex magic only accessible by wizards like Doug Lea and Cliff Click. Our talk will try and demystify them and show that concurrency can be understood by us mere mortal programmers.
