Intro What a great week of Java. First there was the community driven conference of JavaLand in the theme park Phantasialand in Brühl near Cologne, then there was the Java User Group Darmstadt meeting with speaker David Blevins @dblevins, accompanied by Stephen Chin @steveonjava and Sebastian Daschner @DaschnerS.

JavaLand 2016 – A Triber Report

By Community No Comments

Last week, I visited the JavaLand conference at Brühl in the Phantasialand amusement park. Going to JavaLand for the third time and JavaLand being hosted for the third year, you can call me a JavaLand veteran. Nevertheless, this was a very special JavaLand for me because I just became a member of Tomitribe only one week before. So this was a very good occasion to not only learn new stuff, but also meet and celebrate with other members of the Tribe such as the incomparable Amelia Eiras, David Blevins, and Andy Gumbrecht. Besides celebrating, I also visited some very interesting…

The conference was three days long, with the first day dedicated to Tutorials and the next couple of days to Conference Sessions. The numbers are impressive. It had over 1700 attendees, making it the second largest Java conference in Europe, right after Devoxx Belgium. Tomitribe was happy to sponsor the event. Literally, every attendee was a Triber with the Jfokus / Tomitribe lanyard. If like me, you don’t know what a lanyard is (at least the English word), it’s the strap…
