For the first time in Israel,  we are going to introduce a full fledged high quality technical Java conference with over 800 developers from Israel. The conference features advanced topics aimed for experienced developers, team leaders, and consultants. It is a great opportunity for software developers and engineering managers to learn about new technologies, mingle and be seen in the Java community.

The conference is organized by EventHandler with the collaboration of Java.IL - The Israeli Java User Group. The content committee is community driven and led by Java.IL.

Java Summit IL sessions are focused on pragmatic knowledge for your everyday work as a developer in the JVM ecosystem, with focus on Java and other JVM programming languages. We prefer knowledge that is gained from real world experiences, sharing both the pitfalls and the upsides of the topic presented. 

The conference is divided into 2 parallel tracks, hosting 3 types of sessions:

  • Deep Dives: 50 minute long session, covering a topic in depth to fully grasp how it works and whether it can benefit your organization. It balances both the pros and cons, avoiding displaying just the "happy side" of a topic.
  • Overview: 25 minute session, overviewing a topic and providing a general understanding of how it works. Sharing just enough valuable information to understand whether this is applicable to your organization.
  • Bite Size: 15 minute short session, covering the gist of a topic, triggering the viewer to start exploring it more.

We would like our speakers to be  software professionals and we are seeking purely technical content. Marketing / Sales pitches are strongly discouraged. All talks will be selected only according to topic quality and relevance to the community. There will not be any sponsored talks. We value any person with first hand knowledge and good presentation skills. 

First time speakers are welcome. As we understand that a first public talk can be challenging thus we provide extensive assistance: building the slide deck, dry runs with feedback, and presentation skills workshops. It’s important for us to have a good mix of top notch experienced speakers *and* first time speakers.
