Emerging Technology Conference
I have the privilege of speaking at Chariot Solution's Emerging Technology Conference in Philadelphia, PA on March 16th. Chariot has pulled together an excellent group of people to discuss hot new technologies and the way the technology landscape is changing. Here's the official description:
This conference features an IT executive track covering the strategic impact of up and coming technologies and two technical tracks with advanced sessions to jump-start your development using JSF, AJAX, Spring, EJB3, Apache Geronimo, Ruby on Rails and more.
I'll be joined by industry luminaries such as Bruce Snyder, Patrick Linskey, and Thomas Risberg. I'll be talking about -- you guessed it -- JavaServer Faces. My session is called "Architecting JSF Applications". Here's the abstract:
Over the past year, a lot of time has been spent explaining what JSF is, and how different pieces of it work. However, little attention has been given to the process of architecting applications. This makes JSF architecture seem like a black art, since there are so many possible approaches to the application's architecture.
This session looks at different techniques for structuring JavaServer Faces (JSF) applications, and examines the consequences of each technique. In addition, it provides an overview of how different IDEs approach JSF development, and how those approaches may or may not work within your architectural constraints. Finally the session looks at extension points within JSF, and how they can be leveraged to provide features such as security, alternate templating technology, and access to external resources.
If you're located near Philadelphia, I suggest you check out this conference. And, did I mention that it's free?
