February 2012

February's topic will be Google Guice presented by Steven P. Goldsmith, CEO of SG Enterprise Systems. Guice is a compelling DI framework that prefers the type safe nature of Java's annotations and generics over error prone String identifiers (cough, cough, Spring) and convoluted wiring methods.

 The agenda consists of:

  • Guice features
  • Configure Guice in a Maven project
  • Dependency Injection
  • Resolve dependencies with Bindings
  • Guice and AOP
  • Guice and AspectJ (a better AOP)
  • Visualize Guice object graph with Grapher
  • Visualize API with APIviz
  • Real world usage in my DB Access project for transactions

Food and beverages will be provided by John Holton of RITA Technologies. John was able to hook me up, so if you are looking for employment prospects get in contact with him.
