Venkat helps his clients effectively apply and succeed with sustainable agile practices on their software projects. Venkat is a (co)author of multiple technical books, including the 2007 Jolt Productivity award winning book Practices of an Agile Developer. During the first part of the day Dr. Venkat Subramaniam gave two talks: Let’s Get Lazy: The Real Power of Streams Twelve Ways to Make Code Suck Less More than 150 developers came from Sofia and other cities. Even our friends from Macedonian JUG came from Skopje! Then we had a small break. The second part of the day was dedicated to a 3 hours workshop about Functional programming with java. The first two who successfully finished the labs have received special awards from our partner JetBrains – 1-year free license for any of their great products.

Bulgarian JUG at Java2Days

As always, the Bulgarian Java community will have exciting times during the autumn. After the successful first edition of the jPrime conference, the rockstars from the industry will be visiting our country between 2nd and 4th November for Java2Days. This will be the 7th edition of the conference. More than 70 sessions given by more than 60 speakers are expected. There will be tracks for experts, experienced specialists, beginners and kids; Free track; hands-on-labs; demo and relax zone and more. We are happy to announce that the Bulgarian JUG will as always take active part in the event. We got a few of our talks accepted: “Where do we go after Http 1.1 – Http2”, by Mihail Stoynov “Writing Java stored procedures in Oracle Database 12c” and “Spring RabbitMQ integration”, by Martin Toshev “Action based MVC in Java EE? Yes, we do!”, hands on lab by Nayden Gochev and Ivan St. Ivanov We are even happier that our user group will get its booth next to Vitosha hall in Inter Expo Center. There you’ll have the chance to meet us and hear about our future plans and initiatives. As well as do a lot of hacking. Our big idea is to complete the JBoss Forge addon for Spring Boot that we started this summer. See you at...
