Conferences and Events 2023

Thursday, December 28, 2023 - 02:56 by Ivar Grimstad

2023 was a good conference year! I spoke at more than thirty conferences and meetups across four continents. In addition to the more traditional developer conferences, I visited a lot of Java User Groups this year. This is something I will continue to do next year. I already have a couple lined up. Check out my Developer Advocate pages on the Jakarta EE website for an up-to-date list. Please reach out if you are involved in a JUG in the vicinity of an event I am already traveling to as I will be happy to extend my stay and visit your JUG.

Earlier this year, in May to be exact, I decided to revive my Instagram presence and started posting pictures there. Please take a look and don’t be shy to ask for a selfie with me if we cross paths.

Since I am an avid runner, I always bring my running gear with me when I travel. I also usually bring some extra Jakarta EE running shirts for those who would like to join me on a morning run before a conference starts. Check out the #runWithJakartaEE tag on social media.

I hope to see you all at conferences and meetups throughout 2024!
