TheServerSide Java Symposium Las Vegas 2006
Dr Heinz Kabutz was honoured to be invited to present two sessions at
Java Symposium from the 23rd to the 25th of March 2006 at Caesar's
Palace in Las Vegas. This is the second time that he will be visiting the
This talk will help you to become a more productive Java programmer, with
ideas that Dr Kabutz uses "in the field".
Code Java at the speed of light. Modern IDEs have revolutionised the way in
which we are able to churn out code. Sadly most programmers are held back by
bad habits and so never fully utilise the power that is at their fingertips.
This talk will demonstrate practical tips on how to go from 2nd gear to
overdrive. Topics range from keyboard skills to writing useful comments to
refactoring quickly and correctly. Keywords such as final, which is not so
final anymore in Java 5, and tools to help you detect dead and duplicate code.
Have more fun in your day-to-day Java work by becoming one with your machine.
A must attend for any serious Java programmer.
Java Specialists in Action
The session is an improved version of the highly popular Java Specialists
in Action that was presented at the Java in Action conference in Orlando
in October 2005.
Java has some features that make it highly flexible to work with, like putty
in the hands of a craftsman. Java specialists are not shy to use advanced
features like dynamic proxies, generics, enums to their advantage. In this
talk, we will demonstrate some approaches of using Javaï¿½s dynamic proxies to
create virtual proxies, protection proxies, dynamic object adapters and
dynamic decorators. A part of the talk will also explore the performance
implications and compare it with the benefits gained. P.S. If you are
wondering why ï¿½enumï¿½ is listed under ï¿½advanced featuresï¿½ you should definitely
attend this talk.
