Time for another JavaOne proposals. I am not sure I really want to travel across the Ocean, but my friends encourage me to submit some talks, so let's try it.
Looks like my karma of being JavaOne2011 rock star is gone. Only few of my submissions got accepted. Is DukeScript doing something wrong? At least the talks about API are still being accepted. However I promised a checklist and I don't have any, will need to make something up in the next three months. The BOF with RoboVM guys will certainly be fun - is there any other person with VM insight to join us?
BOF4941: Virtually Inside-Out!
Monday Sep 29, 19:00 - 19:45, Moscone South - 305
Designing your own virtual machine? Interested in byte-code? Or just curious to know how your favorite Java language construct (think of lambdas) transfers into the native form by yourVM? Join the authors of alternative Java virtual machines to ask and learn!
The session brings the guys taking Java to new devices (like iOS as RoboVM does or into a browser as done by Bck2Brwsr VM, Doppio or TeaVM) to walk through their code and discuss similarities and differences between their virtual machines.
In no way, this is an introductory talk! Just a few slides. Most of the time spent digging through internals of our VMs in a code editor or debugger showing the most gory details one always wanted to know about, but were afraid to ask.
Bring your questions! Learn how VMs of your favorite language looks inside-out!
Tuesday Sep 30, 8:30 - 10:30: Hilton - Plaza A
Let's do a bit of DukeScript programming!
CON4946: API Design Checklist
Tuesday Sep 30, 12:30 - 13:30, Hilton - Imperial Ballroom A
Monday Sep 29, 14:30-15:30 Hilton Golden Gate 4/5
This is Toni's talk, but I am sure I'll be around.
I was invited by Shai to join panel about various strategies to get Java on to iOS. Originally I was supposed to talk about Bck2Brwsr VM, but then we agreed, it will be better to focus on DukeScript. Either me or somebody else from the DukeScript community will join the panel.
CON4951: Gateway to All Screens of Your Life
The World Wide Web celebrated its 25th birthday in March (illustration photo). However the Web is no longer the same as it used to be at the beginning. Instead of browsers that connect to static HTML pages served by simple Apache servers out there, we have dynamic ecosystem of small devices running all over the globe and talking to each other in ways unimaginable back then.
Also the presentation changed. Rather than using browser for everything the user interface consumers are getting more and more used to dedicated applications installed from various stores. Linux distributions were using such application repositories for ages and now, when phones and tablets popularized this style among regular users, each OS is coming up with its own store.
Developing applications for such heterogeneous environment is however bringing its own challenges - unless we harness the power of Java and boost its ability to Write Once, Run Anywhere to new dimensions!
Let us show you how to develop services ready for the IoT age with the help of OSGi services. Let use present them and control them in a unified way on your desktop, Android, iOS, in a browser or a device dedicated LCD screen with the help of DukeScript. Let us show you how to package your applications to be ready for store-like distributions.
