Connecting Applications Everywhere with ActiveMQ

This year at CamelOne there's going to be some exceptional presentations,  but I'm also presenting "Connecting Applications Everywhere with ActiveMQ".

The focus of this presentation is to demonstrate the many protocol options and deployment scenarios that are available to Apache ActiveMQ. After an introduction to the Apache ActiveMQ project, and presenting why the "Internet of Things"is going to be driving the agenda for integration and messaging over the next 5 years, I'll be demonstrating an example application, going from an Arduino Microprocessor using MQTT to a MQTT/AMQP ActiveMQ gateway and to an ActiveMQ broker that will service HTML clients over WebSockets - something like this:

With so many linked components in a live demo - what could go wrong ? ;)

I'm hoping to catch up with lots of folks at CamelOne - if you haven't registered, its not too late!


Unfortunately at this year's CamelOne  there wasn't any video recordings of sessions. Sharing slides is easy, but you do a demo you need video. Luckily I managed to re-create the whole CamelOne presentation and demo in a DevZone webinar - the video of which is below:

What to look forward to at CamelOne, June 10-11th, 2013!

This year is going to be the third CamelOne, and its going to be quite different from previous
CamelOne conferences.

Firstly the we have a new host, Red Hat who have kindly agreed to host CamelOne at the Hynes Convention Center, at the same time as JudCon and Red Hat Developer Exchange. This means people attending will be able to move between these different events and pick n' mix what they go to.
It also means there will be a chance for attendees to mingle - and see what's happening on both sides of the open source fence. 

The second thing you'll notice, is that is going to be a very strong emphasis on open source projects. I've no doubt the occasional product may get a mention, but the aim of CamelOne this year is to educate and share experiences of using the best open source integration software out there.  If you look at the agenda, you will see there's a real mix of customer experience stories and best way to use the Apache projects to be successful.

Thirdly, the overall theme is going to show how you the direction integration projects from the ASF (Apache Camel, ActiveMQ, CXF, Karaf, ServiceMix) are taking to address the integration needs for the next five years: The internet of things, the proliferation of cloud API's, and mobile. Attendees will also see the direction that the Fuse Engineering team inside Red Hat are developing for future projects, in particular better management and  Cloud-based Integration.

This is going to be the best CamelOne yet - we are expecting record attendance - and I look forward to seeing you there!
