DevNexus 2014 - Feb 24-25 - Atlanta - 10+1 Tracks - 100 sessions

The preparations for DevNexus 2014 are in full swing and we are targeting to have the biggest and boldest DevNexus developer conference ever. DevNexus will take place February 24-25 at the Cobb Galleria Centre in Atlanta, GA. With the holiday season upon us, why not reward yourself with a DevNexus ticket?

Registration is now open at:

Best of all, DevNexus will not break your wallet. The Early Bird Pass is available for $210 ($240 regular) and the Group Pass for groups of 5 or more is $210. We also have a $150 Student Pass available (Contact us for the code - info at ajug dot org). Keep in mind not to wait too long as DevNexus has sold out completely in the past couple of years.

This year we will offer 10 parallel tracks + 1 workshop track covering a wide spectrum of topics such as:
  • Java/JavaEE/Spring
  • HTML5
  • JavaScript
  • Data + Integration
  • Alternative Languages on the JVM
  • User Experience
  • Cloud
  • Agile + Tools
  • Mobile
In total we will have almost 100 sessions for you! 

Currently the call for papers is still under way and the response so far has been nothing short of phenomenal. Already we have started confirming a few speakers. We are excited to have Brett Meyer, a core Hibernate team member. Mark PollackSpring Data and Spring XD co-lead as well as Rob Winch, the lead developer for Spring Security will present as well. Furthermore, industry experts such as Venkat Subramaniam and Peter Bell are confirmed to speak. Over the next couple of weeks you will see an explosion of new speakers and sessions being added to the DevNexus website at:

Please check in often to see the progress! Also, we are very excited to announce our first keynote presenter who will fly in all the way from Germany: Sven Peters is a software geek working as an ambassador for Atlassian. He has been developing Java applications for over 12 years and leading small teams using lean methodologies. Sven likes effective software development and cares about the motivation of developers.

He will present:

How To Do Kick-Ass Software Development

With Kick-Ass Software Development you actually get stuff done. Feedback cycles are short, code quality is awesome and customers get the features they lust after. Less mangers managing, less testers testing and less IT-operators operating. The developers take the power back, making them much happier. Sound like paradise? It is! This session will show you how we do Kick-Ass Software Development at Atlassian. I will talk about how we: use pull requests for better code quality; collaborate fast to develop ideas; avoid meetings to get more stuff done; tighten our feedback loops to fail faster; shorten our release cycles; and work together happily on different continents. It's a great way to develop software and we think it can work in your company, too.

With this line-up of topics and many more to come, attending DevNexus should be a top priority - This is the South-East’s best, yet affordable, developer conference! We, the volunteers from the Atlanta Java Users Group would be delighted to see you all at DevNexus! Learn, network and have fun -

We would like to thank all our Sponsors that help us greatly to keep DevNexus super-affordable.
