Talking about Maven and Build Automation in London

All true craftsmen need the best tools

Wakaleo Consulting is going to London to visit the Queen! Well, the London Java community, at least.

I'll be in London between the 6th and 10th of July to run the first London session of the Java Power Tools Bootcamp with the folks from Skills Matter. There are still a few places left for this session, but you probably should hurry ;-).

While I'm in London, I will be giving a talk at the SkillMatters "In-The-Brain" evening session of the 6th of June from 6:30pm-8:00pm. This will be a rerun of the talk I gave at JavaOne on "Getting Serious About Build Automation: Using Maven in the Real World":


Maven 2 is becoming increasingly popular in larger organizations looking to standardize and industrialize their build processes as well as in smaller shops simply trying to get more out of their builds. This session, for developers wanting to learn about Maven and Maven users wanting to get more out of their build tool, briefly covers the main features and benefits of Maven and then looks at some of the more advanced uses of Maven in the real world, including complex transitive dependency management, dependency conflicts, multimodule projects, and integration with other build systems. It also looks at how the m2eclipse plug-in can be used to improve the Maven user experience and how to use the Nexus repository manager with the Maven release process to publish your APIs and deploy your applications within your organization.

The talk will take place in the SkillsMatter buildings in Clerkenwell, London.

So, see you in London!
