Shaping Java's future & vJUG party! 
Adopt-a-JSR and Adopt OpenJDK are community driven programs that provide a hands-on route to getting involved in defining the future of Java technology. Working together with the Java Community Process (JCP), these programs have gained world wide community participation in the last two years and have contributed to both the Java EE 7 and Java SE 8 platforms in a concrete and significant way. Learn from experts and participants in the programs and find out how you can start contributing to creating better, more practical standards today and in the future.

Panelists include - Arun Gupta, Ed Burns & Martijn Verburg.


Arun Gupta is Director of Developer Advocacy at Red Hat and focuses on JBoss Middleware. As a founding member of the Java EE team at Sun Microsystems, he spread the love for technology all around the world. At Oracle, he led a cross-functional team to drive the global launch of the Java EE 7 platform through strategy, planning, and execution of content, marketing campaigns, and program. After authoring ~1400 blogs atblogs.oracle.com/arungupta on different Java technologies, he continues to promote Red Hat technologies and products atblog.arungupta.me. Arun has extensive speaking experience in 35+ countries on myriad topics. An author of a best-selling book, an avid runner, and a globe trotter, he is easily accessible at @arungupta. 

Ed Burns is a Senior Staff Engineer for Oracle Corporation where he chairs the JSR 344 (JSF 2.2) Expert Group and contributes to the open source Mojarra project. He is the author of four books published by McGraw-Hill about a variety of IT topics. Ed is a frequent speaker at international industry conferences, and has presented many times at JavaOne. 

Martijn Verburg (aka 'the Diabolical Developer'), CTO of jClarity, herds Cats in the Java/open source communities and is constantly humbled by the creative power to be found there!

Currently he resides in London where he co-leads the London JUG (a JCP EC member), runs the Adopt a JSR and Adopt OpenJDK programs and drinks good beer at his local pub. You can find him on-line facilitating development of FOSS projects (PCGen and Ikasan), moderating at the Javaranch or discussing (ranting about?) subjects on the Programmers Stack Exchange.

He's become a regular (diabolical) speaker at conferences on Java, FOSS and software development and has recently wrapped up his first Manning title - "The Well-Grounded Java Developer" with his co-author Ben Evans.
