Pictures from W-JAX 2018

This week I had the pleasure to attend W-JAX in Munich which is a conference for Java and enterprise developers with 1400 attendees. I’ve been to JAX and W-JAX several times and really like this conference. Great speakers, great content, great discussions. Below are some pictures.

The IBM team: Thomas Südbröcker, Andrea Overthun, Miriam Oglesby, Fernando Cejas, Miguel Crisanto, Christine Mayer, Steve Poole, Chris Ferries, Niklas Heidloff

Chris Ferris did a keynote Who Pays for Open Source? A Case for Open Governance & Enterprise Contributions. He also updated recently his article IBM’s approach to open technology which is essentially a longer version of the keynote.
