Java Champion Adam Bien is a self-employed consultant, lecturer, software architect, developer, and author in the enterprise Java sector in Germany who implements Java technology on a large scale. He is also the author of several books and articles on Java and J2EE technology, as well as distributed Java programming. His books include J2EE Patterns, J2EE HotSpots, Java EE 5 Architectures, Enterprise Architectures, Enterprise Java Frameworks, SOA Expert Knowledge, and Struts, all published in German.
Martin Odersky heads the programming research group at EPFL. His research interests cover fundamental as well as applied aspects of programming languages. They include semantics, type systems, programming language design, and compiler construction. The main focus if his work lies in the integration of object-oriented and functional programming. His research thesis is that the two paradigms are just two sides of the same coin and should be unified as much as possible. To prove this he has experimented a number of language designs, from Pizza to GJ to Functional Nets. He has also influenced the development of Java as a co-designer of Java generics and as the original author of the current javac reference compiler. His current work concentrates on the Scala programming language, which unifies FP and OOP, while staying completely interoperable with Java and .NET.
Mike Milinkovich is the executive director of the Eclipse Foundation. In his role at the Foundation, Mike is responsible for running one of the largest open source communities building Java technology. He spends a considerable amount of time talking at conference and directly to organizations on the benefits of developing Java technology through an open source project. Besides his work at the Eclipse Foundation, Mike sits on the executive committee of the JCP and the OpenJDK Governance Board. In particular, Mike’s current work on the OpenJDK Governance Board is to help establish an open and transparent governance process for the OpenJDK community.
SouJava is an established non-profit organization and Java User Group focused on strengthening the Java developer community. Founded in 1998 and based in São Paulo, it congregates over 40 thousand members throughout Brazil and in several other countries. The group participated in many discussions about Java adoption inside companies and Government agencies and has facilitated Java-standard and technology adoption for major enterprises in the public and private sectors. SouJava has recently been elected to the Executive Committee of the Java Community Process.
The London Java Community
The London Java Community is a young, yet large and vibrant Java ecosystem community. It has completely transformed the London Java scene over its short life, growing from 0 to ~1700 members within 3 years and holding on average an event per week. The LJC provides a space for Java enthusiasts (big and small) to meet in a neutral setting to promote open standards and technologies. Alongside the Brazilian JUG, the LJC is also proud to represent Java developers in voting and participating on standards for the Java ecosystem via their seat on the Java SE/EE executive committee.
