This year I'm thrilled to be doing a number of talks at ApacheCon Europe 2009, and a full day-long tutorial on building web and REST services with Apache CXF (FUSE Service Framework). Abstracts below - see you there!
Talk: Tales from the Front Line: how ServiceMix, ActiveMQ & CXF are being used to solve real problems. In this session we discuss how application integration and middleware-focussed Apache projects - like ServiceMix, ActiveMQ, Camel & CXF - are being used to build innovative solutions that add real value to organizations in health-care, government, airline-solutions and finance. For each use-case, we discuss both logical and deployment architecture concerns. We also discuss the motives for adopting open-source in these solutions, and why these Apache projects where chosen above other open source alternatives.
Talk: Adopting Open Source in the Enterprise.
For some organizations, the decision to adopt open source software
is not taken lightly, and, once made, can require significant shifts
in thinking and organization culture. This session discusses the
issues organizations face when strategically adopting open source,
including how to select open source projects, how to match open source
involvement & contribution with corporate strategy, how to select &
manage professional open source software vendors, what needs to be
done in terms of licensing and legal, and what kind of infrastructure
you need to support your open source strategy.
