Xtend @ JavaOne 2012

JavaOne logo
This year, I will attend the JavaOne for the very first time and I'm really looking forward to it since I expect it to be a great conference (almost as good as EclipseCon, I'd say ;-). I'm especially excited about the fact, that my session about Xtend got accepted and therefore I will have the chance to give a talk about that great language which we are working on in Kiel, Germany. The session will be on Tuesday, Oct 2, 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM @ Hilton San Francisco - Golden Gate 6/7/8.

Don't expect a talk about language theory or something. I will only bring a few slides to give a brief introduction and insight into the ideas and philosophy behind Xtend. The bigger part of the session will be pure live coding. Xtend plays nicely with all these cool frameworks in the Java ecosystem so expect a variety of interesting code snippets. And as a guy from northern Germany I will even prepare an example that has to do with beer. And singing. Just kidding, I won't do that to you.
So if you are at JavaOne this year, make sure to stop by to learn more about Xtend.
