2 DAY CONFERENCE

Spring eXchange 2014

Topics covered at #springX

Thursday, 6th - Friday, 7th November in London

24 experts spoke.

Overview

Would you like to find out the future of the widest used Java framework available? Fancy learning and sharing with 250+ like minded developers to tackle common problems?

Join us at The Spring eXchange in London on November 6-7th!

For and by the community

Thanks to the great input and ideas contributed by our community and the support of Dave Syer and others, we have been able to put together a program that rocks!

We're planning on three tracks over two days, covering Enterprise Java technologies, Big Data and Spring XD, Spring in Production, Spring IO, Spring Data, REST and Microservices: a whole range of Enterprise Java topics. There is a beginners track as well, for those just getting started. At the end of each day, we're providing a unique forum to explore ideas about these topics with hundreds of other members of the Spring and Java community during our ParkBench Panel discussions: this is an experience you won't get back at the office.

So if you'd like to spend the day learning all the newest tools and best practices in Java and Spring, to have meaningful conversations to help you write more powerful software, and to discover how to best deliver what your business needs, do come along!

Registration now open!

Brilliant Minds on Stage

enter image description here Featuring Dave Syer, Josh Long, Ben Hale, Russ Miles, Mark Pollack and other top experts in the Spring and Java community, this year will be the sixth anniversary of this cornerstone conference for the Spring and Java community - and it’ll be our best yet.

Expect to meet members of the GoPivotal Spring Framework team and to learn about the most comprehensive programming and configuration model for modern Java-based enterprise applications. Share your ideas with leading innovators in the Java movement: you can trust us to invite the best!

Fantastic Venue

enter image description here

After the success of last year, it was clear we needed a bigger venue for this year's Spring conference. So we have secured the BDC in Islington, where we will be able to accommodate London's sizeable and ever growing #springX community. With great spaces for talks and discussions, unrivalled technology capabilities and fantastic transport links in one of London's most buzzing areas, we could not think of a better venue to host this year's Spring eXchange.

Excited? Share it!
