IBM shows Technology Leadership at Devoxx
Last week (Dec 8-12 2008),
there was Devoxx
(formely known as JavaPolis)
in the Metropolis in Antwerp.
The fair usually welcomes 2000
developers for technical conferences
on Java, PHP, JavaFX, Scala,
Ruby on Rails...
IBM invests on this event
and this year Robin Mulkers
proposed to demonstrate IBM's
technology leadership with a
real use case of one of the
hottest technologies: RFID.
The project was exlained
in the keynote
(see some photos here below)
Furthermore, it's a usefull use case for the
Devoxx Organization : All participants
receivedan RFID badge. Those badges
were tracked so that one could
for example see which
sessions were the most popular. Or
participants could leave their name
at the booths by letting the hostess
scan their badge to participate
to games or request for more information.
At IBM, we call this innovation that matters !
PS : Devoxx is one of the best
events that I know. The organization
is really great. You have free WiFi, you
can take drinks directly from
the fridge, speackers are accessible,
topics are cool...
Everything is in place to have a great
Developer experience !
