Subject Re: Solutions.Hamburg: Invitation to provide ApacheContent
Date Tue, 23 May 2017 19:27:01 GMT
Hi Rich, Christofer, others!

I'm based in Vienna and would be able to give talks in German or English.

The topic would be something like "JavaEE at Apache", covering all the projects we have around
that area:
Tomcat (Servlets), OpenWebBeans (CDI), Johnzon (JSON-P, JSON-B), BVal, CXF, DeltaSpike, etc

This might be interesting because of EE8 goes final a few weeks before. 
I'm involved in writing quite a few of the specs and also many of the ASF projects covering
That would of course also cover MicroProfile containers like Meecrowave and TomEE.

I also have quite a bit of experience in giving conference talks and half-day lectures (must
be close to 100 talks).
My talks are no-fluff but purely technical. My goal is to make people understand what the
core aspect or 'trick' of a certain technology is to let the audience grow beyond copy&paste
from stackoverflow but to really understand what they are doing.
