Applying Lessons from Open Source Development

The Apache Software Foundation has thousands of contributors in all time zones and most countries collaborating to deliver world-class software. What lessons can you learn from such Open Source communities to apply within your company?

Noel, Apache Incubator Vice President and long time contributor to multiple Apache projects, will talk about decision making, communication, source control, community dynamics, and other aspects that enable communities of developers scattered across the globe to efficiently and effectively build software in today's global environment. The sessions will be interactive, allowing attendees to talk about how the various processes and philosophies can be introduced into their own development organizations.

What's New in the Servlet and JavaServer Pages Technologies?

What are all the new features in the Servlet and JavaServer Pages specifications that you are not yet taking advantage of? This talk will cover enhancements in these critical core web application technologies, and how you can benefit from them.

Topics will include Listeners, Filters, Expression Language, sessions, standard tags, and creating custom tags; with additional, lighter, discussion of companion specifications, specifically Portlets and JavaServer Faces.
