Earlier this month I attended JavaLand in Brühl, Germany. JavaLand took place for the fifth time and has grown to 1900 developers from 20 countries.
It’s always a lot of fun at JavaLand; this was the third time I attended. What was great this year was that we had even more developers visiting our booth than in previous years. Those who I talked to particularly appreciated IBM’s emphasize on open source and the huge progress we have made over the last few years in cloud-related technologies.
My colleague Holly Cummins gave the keynote. Unfortunately the room was too small for everyone to attend and when I arrived the doors were closed.
Here is a picture from our team Miriam Oglesby, Holly Cummins, Fernando Cejas and myself.
At the booth we demonstrated Anki Overdrive cars which are connected to the IBM Watson IoT platform and can be steered via Kinect. The next picture shows Fernando giving a demo.
