The Jakarta EE Website Launch

As part of the Jakarta EE launch at JAX 2018, there were multiple announcements made, unveiling the new Jakarta EE website and logo, as well as the results of the developer survey.

The website showcases various news items and blogs written by participating member companies and assorted news outlets. The website also includes more information on the Jakarta EE Working Group and ways to stay connected, either through the Jakarta EE mailing lists or signing up for the newsletter.

As many are aware, the logo was chosen through a community vote, and all the logos included on the ballot were designed by members of the Jakarta EE community. We received 2090 votes from the community in the logo selection process. The winning design received 763 first-place votes, which was 300 votes greater than any of the other choices.

A big thank you and congratulations go to James Cobb from Red Hat for the winning design!

For more information on the launch and future of Jakarta EE, see articles below!

Key trends from the IoT Survey 2018

For the past four years, the IoT Developer Survey has been a great way to look at the IoT landscape, from understanding the key challenges for people building IoT solutions, to identifying relevant open source technology or standards.

This year, the IoT Developer Survey collected feedback from 502 individuals between January and March 2018.

For more information or learn more about the key findings in this year’s edition of the survey, check out Benjamin Cabe's blog here.

Gearing up for FOSS4G NA 2018!

The final planning is underway for the busiest FOSS4G North America conference yet, happening in St. Louis on May 14-16, 2018.  

With a full 3 day program plus a community day and code sprint, the technical program covers everything geospatial.  The program also has great networking events, including a B2B program, Wednesday evening gala, and more.

Jakarta EE update Interview with Mike Milinkovich

At JAX 2018, Mike Milinkovich gave an interview on the current state of Jakarta EE and its future. Mike also gave a glimpse into the new Community Process for Jakarta EE and how it will be replacing the classic JCP, as well as speaking to many of the exciting things happening with other Eclipse projects, including the upcoming Photon release.

The results are in for the Jakarta EE Survey

The Eclipse Foundation conducted a worldwide survey of more than 1,800 Java developers worldwide in March 2018 to identify top priorities in the developer community for critical new technical capabilities in future iterations of Jakarta EE.

Of particular interest, the survey identified the communities top priorities, which point to the need for Jakarta EE to ensure the platform evolves to support cloud native development, and to enable a faster pace of innovation on the platform. These are the major drivers behind the creation of the Jakarta EE Working Group and the changes already underway.
