Opening Keynote: The father of Java, James Gosling
During his seminar you’ll hear fascinating insight into his current projects with Liquid Robotics which intersects IoT, robotics, cloud computing, and remote digital communications.
Their WaveGlider is an autonomous ocean-going robot with swarm intelligence utilising Linux and Java for data collection and communication!
James Gosling received a BSc in Computer Science from the University of Calgary, Canada in 1977. He received a PhD in Computer Science from Carnegie-Mellon University in 1983. The title of his thesis was “The Algebraic Manipulation of Constraints”. He spent many years as a VP & Fellow at Sun Microsystems. He has built satellite data acquisition systems, a multiprocessor version of Unix, several compilers, mail systems and window managers. He has also built a WYSIWYG text editor, a constraint based drawing editor and a text editor called `Emacs’ for Unix systems. At Sun his early activity was as lead engineer of the NeWS window system. He did the original design of the Java programming language and implemented its original compiler and virtual machine. He has been a contributor to the Real-Time Specification for Java, and a researcher atSun labs where his primary interest was software development tools. He then was the Chief Technology Officer of Sun’s Developer Products Group and the CTO of Sun’s Client Software Group. He briefly worked for Oracle after the acquisition of Sun. After a year off, he spent some time at Google and is now the chief software architect at Liquid Robotics.
We look forward to seeing you for Europe’s number ONE enterprise IT event IP EXPO Europe 2016 and on 5-6 October at ExCel London.
