Attendee prerequisites for this tutorial are listed below.
In this tutorial, we discuss four major themes which we believe that all Well-Grounded Java developers should be aware of an start practising to stay ahead of the game in 2012 and beyond. Whilst external aspects such as cloud, NoSQL, etc have been grabbing more than their share of the headlines, these topics are what are reinventing the day to day practice of coding for many Java developers.
In order to make the most of this tutorial, attendees should bring their own laptops with Java 7 installed. Be prepared to work in small groups of 3-4 if the number of attendees registered increase.
