What an event Devoxx Belgium is! 3200 attendees, more than 200 speakers, and five days packed with awesome content. And, of course, the hallway track! Kinepolis in Antwerp during Devoxx is definitely the place to be if you are a Java developer interested in interacting with the best.
My talk titled Jakarta EE 10 – Simplicity for Modern and Lightweight Cloud Applications was scheduled for Thursday early afternoon. It went well, all the demos worked, and I received a lot of positive feedback after the session.
I also did a Jakarta EE BOF with Edwin on Tuesday evening. Even at this late hour, a decent crowd turned up, and we had some interesting discussions. If you’re new to conferences and want to have some informal interaction with the experts within a field, BOFs are a great place. This is exactly what they are for.
