We finally got our first talk fixed: Bert Ertman (Java Champion, JavaOne Rock Star Speaker, Book author) will speak about "Building Modular Java Applications in the Cloud Age".

When and where

The event will be held on the 28th of May 2015, at 18:30 local "doors open" (2015-05-28T18:30:00+02:00 for you ISO 8601 fans) at the bitstars GmbH headquarter, Hanbrucher Straße 40, 52064 Aachen. Admission is free, but you are asked to RSVP via XING so that we know how many guests to expect. We will have a raffle of Java-related books from O’Reilly between the preregistered guests before the talk starts. After the 90-minute talk that starts at 19:00 local we wrap up with some free drinks together with the speaker, giving you the opportunity to ask him some more questions in private.

Abstract of the talk

Modularity is an architectural theme that you’ll hear about more and more. Being able to deal with change in a codebase is not something trivial and requires some serious thought. In this talk I will show you that it is actually pretty easy to achieve a modular architecture using OSGi, and the right set of tools. Of course everything will be demonstrated using live coding!

In this presentation you will learn how to create modular, robust, and durable enterprise Java applications fit for the Cloud Age. Using a modular development approach with Java, OSGi, and a wealth of open source components, you will be shown how to combine these into coherent applications without locking into one of the existing PaaS providers. Finally, we will focus on deployment, introducing Apache ACE, that allows to centrally manage and distribute software components to target systems in the cloud or on premise. The presenter of this talk authored the book Building Modular Cloud Apps with OSGi and is using these techniques in high profile production applications on a daily basis.
