VMware Explore 2023 Combines with Dev-Focused SpringOne Event for Java Jocks

VMware's multi-cloud-centric flagship conference this year is uniting with the developer-focused SpringOne event.

"This year SpringOne is part of VMware Explore Las Vegas and will focus on providing the expert technical content that enables Spring developers to build microservices, web apps, serverless, event-driven, reactive, and cloud workloads across the software industry," VMware said this week.

The four-day U.S.-based show (complementing a November Barcelona counterpart and smaller events in other venues) is set to kick off Aug. 21.

The SpringOne component is new this year, adding a developer focus to the usual mix of announcements, keynotes, user-driven panels, certification trainings and labs on industry and technology topics. That mishmash of content mostly concerns cloud computing, addressing topics such as enterprise applications, cloud architecture, infrastructure, tools for the hybrid workforce, networking and security, along with a special spotlight on the hot industry topic of the moment: AI.

And now come Java jocks.

Especially well-suited for cloud-native development, Java is often named as the most popular programming language in that space in reports like this one.

VMware itself uses the language a lot for its products and services and has published Welcome to Java at VMware guidance that advises users to: "Take your Java applications to the next level using Spring, the world's most popular Java framework. Spring makes programming Java quicker, easier, and safer by providing millions of developers with all of the tools you need right out of the box."

Now, content on how to do all that will be co-located with cloud computing in Las Vegas.

A SpringOne FAQ promises developers at the conference will learn how to:

  • Accelerate your cloud-native Java development
  • Deliver production-grade microservices
  • Connect and scale your cloud services on any platform
  • Build fast, secure and responsive web applications
  • Create serverless applications with on-demand scaling up or scaling to zero
  • Simplifying the production, processing and consumption of event-driven microservices
  • Schedule and prioritize large batches of data for efficient processing

Futhermore: "On Monday, SpringOne at VMware Explore will consist of a main stage for keynotes along with breakout tracks for a full-day schedule with many opportunities to network. Tuesday through Thursday, we will continue our SpringOne at VMware Explore event with breakout sessions, workshops, meet-the-expert roundtables and other interactive ways for you to further your knowledge of all things Spring throughout the rest of VMware Explore."
