The first ever JUDCon Brazil was held a couple of weeks back and it was a real blast! Firstly, it offered a great opportunity to meet some members of the JBoss community which have been helping us push JBoss projects forward in this region of the world, such as Hanneli Tavante, Roberto dos Santos Wagner, ...etc. It was great sharing ideas, experiences...etc with them and coming up with new ideas!

As mentioned before in the post before the conference, I had two new presentations to deliver, one on JSR-107 specification on JCache API and Infinispan's implementation, and the other on Hibernate Second Level Cache with Infinispan. The JCache presentation went really well and all the live coding worked as expected.

The second presentation was the busier of the two, with a full room packed with Hibernate/JPA users waiting to hear how to scale up their applications. I got excellent feedback from both presentations and looking forward to giving these presentations in more user groups or conferences.

The presentations are not up yet, but I expect them to be posted online in the next few weeks. In the mean time, here are a couple of temporary links to the PDFs of my presentations:

  • Bolttlenecks are out! Java Cache Standard (JSR-107) is in! (PDF)
  • Scaling up Hibernate/JPA applications with Infinispan second-level cache (PDF)
The big news of the conference was for sure the announcement of JBoss Application Servers' new name: WildFly. We're actively working with them to make the most out of Infinispan :)

Cheers,
