WebSockets travel to JFokus - Stockholm, Sweden

About 2 years ago I had a conversation with Mattias Karlsson, one of the main brains behind JFokus - a Swedish Java conference. He asked me if I would be interested in speaking at the conference. Unfortunately, timing wasn't right and we decided to postpone till a later opportunity. Well, 2 years have gone and JFokus has grown as a conference and is now one of the leading Java user group conferences in Scandinavia.

Here is a 10 day weather forecast for Stockholm, Sweden

Both John and I will be there presenting and we're looking forward meeting the Swedish developer community, and for me it is also nice to be home even though it is January ;)

Nicolas Brasseur, at JavaBlackBelt, comment after he attended a talk about HTML 5 and WebSocket for the first time:

"I must say this talk [Oredev Conference 2008 - The Future of the Web: HTML 5, WebSocket, and Comet] made me feel as I had years ago at TSSS Las Vegas when I saw my first Ajax demo by Dion Almaer : a revolution is coming."

I do agree with Nicolas, we are at the dawn of a new revolution within Web and Web communication. Sure, there are plenty of technologies that have evolved over the past decade that are improving network communication from one end point to another, as long as you own both ends of the pipe. What if you don't own both ends of the pipe? We have still to address the last mile, the mile when messages leave our corporate controlled network and travel outside to a users sitting with a regular desktop/laptop and a browser. This is where next generation Web communication, as defined by W3C and HTML 5, can help us move to a more interactive Web.

See you in Stockholm!
