Konferencije JavaCro u 2022. / JavaCro Conferences in 2022

Ove godine pripremili smo zanimljive novosti vezano uz održavanje konferencije JavaCro!

(tip: scroll down for text in English)

U tradiciji dugoj već 10 godina u kojima se konferencija JavaCro održavala na različitim lokacijama u Hrvatskoj, najčešće na moru, ove godine se ponovno vraćamo na mjesto gdje je JavaCro priča i započela – u Tuhelj. Oni koji su od samih početaka s nama sjetit će se netom dovršenog hotela Well te niza zanimljivih predavanja od poznatih predavača kao što su Java Championi Gavin King (Hibernate), Juergen Hoeller (Spring, VMware), Angelika Langer (nezavisna konzultantica), Geertjan Wielenga (Oracle, sada Azul) i Matjaž B. Jurič (University of Ljubljana).

Mnogi sudionici su nam rekli kako je vremenski razmak od cijele jedne godine između dvije konferencije često predug period u kojem tehnološki napredak ne posustaje, već naprotiv, u međuvremenu se pojavi veći broj novosti koje se ne stignu predstaviti u kraće vrijeme nakon objave ili se stavljaju “na čekanje” do sljedeće konferencije. Osim toga, jedna godišnja konferencija često je opterećena s mnogo predavanja u različitim dvoranama u isto vrijeme pa neka kvalitetna predavanja ne dođu do izražaja ili su stavljena na listu čekanja. A sad čak i sama Java ima dva izdanja godišnje! Stoga je naša ideja da godišnje održimo dvije konferencije JavaCro, jednu u proljeće, a drugu u jesen, kako bi mogli dobiti bržu i primjereniju razmjenu informaciju te pravovremeni prijenos novosti, a na taj način bi se moglo prihvatiti i veći broj predavanja. Osim toga, naša želja je posvetiti više vremena na konferenciji najboljim rješenjima iz prakse tzv. “Best practices & success stories” i razmjeni iskustava.

Konferencije JavaCro poznate su ne samo po izvrsnim predavanjima i predavačima, nego i po kvalitetnom i korisnom druženju u manje formalnim trenucima i u zabavnoj atmosferi, u kojoj se često lakše ostvaruju kontakti među sudionicima, kao i razmjena znanja i iskustava, što će ostati naša praksa i u budućnosti. Vrlo često su baš ti razgovori i izravni kontakt svih sudionika i predavača, rezultirali bržem i boljem rješavanju problema i tehnološkoj optimizaciji rješenja, ali i uspostavi vrlo korisnih suradnji i partnerstva.

Stoga Vam u 2022. godini predstavljamo čak dva izdanja konferencije JavaCro, a prva jubilarna konferencija JavaCro’22 Spring održat će se od 15. do 17. svibnja u Tuhelju.

Ovu obljetnicu namjeravamo zajedno proslaviti i radujemo se što ćemo se vidjeti na JavaCro’22!

This year, we have prepared some interesting news related to the JavaCro conference!

In the last 10 years, the JavaCro conferences were held in various locations in Croatia, most often at the seaside; however, this year we return to the place where the JavaCro story began – to Tuhelj. Those who have been with us from the very beginning will remember the newly completed Well Hotel and a number of interesting sessions from famous speakers, including Java Champions Gavin King (Hibernate), Juergen Hoeller (Spring, VMware), Angelika Langer (independent consultant), Geertjan Wielenga (Oracle, now Azul) and Matjaž B. Jurič (University of Ljubljana).

Many participants told us that the one-year gap between the two conferences is often a too long period in which technological progress does not slow down, but on the contrary, in the meantime a larger number of innovations appear that cannot be presented in a shorter time right after the announcement or are put “on hold” until the next conference. Furthermore, one annual conference is often burdened with many lectures in different tracks at the same time, so some quality lectures do not come to the fore or are put on a waiting list. And now even Java itself has two releases a year! Therefore, our idea is to hold two JavaCro conferences a year, one in the spring and the other in the fall, to get a faster and more appropriate exchange of information and timely sharing of news and accept more lectures. Moreover, our desire is to dedicate more time at the conference to the best practices, success stories, and exchange of experiences.

JavaCro conferences are known not only for excellent sessions and speakers but also for quality and productive socializing in less formal moments and a fun atmosphere when it is often easier to make contacts between participants and exchange knowledge and experiences, which will remain our practice in the future. Most often, these conversations and direct contact of all participants and speakers resulted in faster and better problem solving and technical optimization of solutions as well as the establishment of beneficial collaborations and partnerships.

Therefore, in 2022, we present two editions of the JavaCro conference, and the first 10th JavaCro’22 Spring conference will be held May 15 – 17 in Tuhelj.

We would like to celebrate this anniversary together and we are looking forward to seeing you at JavaCro’22!

Konferencija Javantura / Javantura Conference

Dragi članovi HUJAK-a i simpatizeri Jave i srodnih tehnologija,

željeli bismo vas ovim putem obavijestiti da s obzirom na trenutna ograničenja i preporuke vezane uz pandemiju COVID-19 i informacije koje trenutno imamo (siječanj 2022.), nažalost nećemo moći održati konferenciju Javantura u prvom dijelu 2022. godine na način kako smo namjeravali!

Stoga, kada se uvjeti vezani uz održavanje konferencija promijene, ponovno ćemo razmotriti održavanje konferencije Javantura i obavijestiti vas o tome.

Zahvaljujemo na razumijevanju,
HUJAK

Dear members of HUJAK and sympathizers of Java and related technologies,

radovan-aleksander_lecturerportraitOrganizatori nastavljaju uspješnu tradiciju dovođenja svjetski renomiranih predavača našoj publici, a o tome smo razgovarali s direktorom programa konferencije Aleksanderom Radovanom, koji nam je rekao: “Ove godine će nam se predstaviti Jeff Prosise, stručnjak za cloud aplikacije temeljene na Microsoft Azure tehnologiji, umjetnoj inteligenciji i strojnom učenju. Jeff će u sklopu Change konferencije održati i jednodnevnu radionicu temeljenu na Microsoft Azure tehnologiji. Poput Jeffa, vrlo čest gost najboljih konferencija u Europi, Viktor Farčić koji će također obogatiti naš program novostima vezanim uz DevOps problematiku, mikroservise, automatiziranje procesa razvoja korištenjem CI/CD i TDD metodologijama. Uskoro će biti objavljen i cjelokupni program konferencije sa svim predavačima i radionicama.”

prosise-jeff-wintellect-e1552163037868Kao što je spomenuto, Jeff Prosise će 27. rujna održati jednodnevnu radionicu Building Cloud-Based Applications for Microsoft Azure, a svi zainteresirani se već sad mogu prijaviti na radionicu. Jeff Prosise, kao stručnjak je za cloud aplikacije temeljene na Microsoft Azure tehnologiji, umjetnoj inteligenciji i strojnom učenju, suosnivač je Wintellecta, tvrtke koja se bavi razvojem softvera i obukom developera. Autor je devet knjiga i stotine članaka objavljenih u časopisima. Educirao je tisuće programera u Microsoftu te održao predavanja na nekim od najvećih svjetskih softverskih konferencija.

Trenutno su u prodaji dostupne early bird ulaznice za konferenciju po cijeni od 120 kuna, odnosno 60 kuna za studente. Novosti, detaljnije informacije o predavačima, programu i temama konferencije možete pratiti na službenom webu konferencije Change, Facebooku i Twitteru.

Kratki video o konferenciji

Konferencija – 24. HrOUG – 15.-18.10. u Rovinju

HUJAK-ovi dragi kolege i partneri iz udruge HrOUG, organizaraju 24. godišnju konferenciju HrOUG, najveće okupljanje Oracle zajednice u jugoistočnoj Europi, od 15. do 18. listopada 2019. godine u Island hotelu Istra na otoku Sv. Andrije (Crvenom otoku) pored Rovinja.

Konferencija HrOUG 2019 je višednevna međunarodna konferencija posvećena primjeni tehnologije u poslovanju koju već 24. put zaredom organizira Hrvatska udruga Oracle korisnika (HrOUG). I ove godine na konferenciji će se predstaviti više od 80 predavanja, Oracle Groundbreakers Tour i 20 Oracle ACE predavača, a očekuje se oko 400 sudionika.

Želja organizatora je predstaviti niz raznolikih tema zanimljivih širokom krugu sudionika te potaknuti kvalitetnu razmjenu iskustava, kao i čvršće povezivanje hrvatske IT/poslovne zajednice koja dijeli slične interese. Zanimljivost je da će konferenciju posjetiti kolege iz drugih lokalnih i regionalnih udruga i meetup grupa povezanih s primjenom tehnologija u poslovanju, a dio njih održat će i zanimljiva predavanja.

Organizatori su pripremili četiri vrhunska keynote predavanja. Prvi keynote će biti izuzetno zanimljivo predavanje Future of Humankind and of the Universe znanstvenika dr. Ivice Puljka u okviru otvaranja konferencije u utorak. Ostala keynote će se održati svakog dana po jedno, a to su: Stress Driven Development, and How to Avoid It – Dmitry Vinnik, The Basics of Machine Learning – Heli Helskyaho i What is New in the Relational Database World – Julian Dontcheff.

U programu ove godine HrOUG će ugostiti šest vrhunskih predavača iz Oracle ACE programa u okviru Oracle Groundbreaking Toura, koji će u srijedu održati aktualna predavanja (za DBA, developere i managere) upoznajući sudionike sa najvažnijim novitetima s ovogodišnjeg Oracle Open Worlda koji će se održati mjesec dana prije. Osim toga, sudionici će imati priliku čuti neke od ponajboljih govornika iz Oracle okruženja, a to su svakako Oracle ACE direktori, kojih ove godine dolazi čak deset, a osim njih, svoj dolazak je potvrdilo još desetak predavača sa statusom Oracle ACE i Oracle ACE Associate, jedan Oracle ACE Alumni. Sudionici će imati prilike čuti novosti i moći postaviti pitanje Oracle Product Managerima koji su poznati po tome koliko znaju o produktima koje pokrivaju i mogu odgovoriti i na najzahtjevnija pitanja. Naravno, osim navedenih predavača na konferenciji će predavanja održati i cijeli niz vrhunskih predavača iz Hrvatske i regije.

Prestavnici HUJAK-a će posjetiti konferenciju te održati predavanje
Software Development in Java – Today and Tomorrow.

Vidimo se u Rovinju!
