As promised, more information on what we're doing at JavaOne!
As most of you know, the divide between developers and their ability access the network (or even want to, for that fact) has been a major problem for a long, long time. To me at least (coming from the software side) the network is just this big box that either is up or down, and if it's down I'm frustrated, if it's running I don't even think about it. But there's actually a lot of information in there that's relevant to developers - and it actually can be used if it is unlocked in a simple enough way to use the network data in web applications and services.
Well, Juniper provides that key to unlock the box. You're going to learn lots more about the ways this can be done at JavaOne (types of APIs we offer, ways to actually get more visibility into your network through new technologies, make your apps run faster, more efficiently, and include better data - and how to apply this to your apps - today). This will actually be part of the focus of the keynote we're giving on Tuesday at 8:30am. More to come on this very soon.
In the meantime though, here's a quick list of sessions that some of our folks are doing that will be discussing these topics:
- Hal Stern, VP & Chief Troublemaker (I mean Architect) will be presenting on "Networks as Information Factories" on Wednesday, 11:30 AM, Hilton San Francisco - Plaza A/B. You'll get some great detail on Cloud Computing, Big Data, and how you can utilize more intelligent information on these things to create better solutions.
- James Kelly, one of our top network engineers (and probably the coolest guy you'll meet at the show) will be discussing open innovation in networking software and how to use APIs from the network to build new services and applications. His session is: Tuesday, 01:30 PM, Hotel Nikko - Carmel I/II
Any questions on what we're up to (because it doesn't stop after JavaOne!) or interviews, ping me direct as well and I'll connect you to the right folks at Juniper so we can meet. There's lots more coming... so stay tuned.
