Jason van Zyl – Maven expert and Chariot guest blogger

Tags: , , , , ,

Chariot’s blog is trying something new today. I asked Jason van Zyl to give our audience a preview of his talk at Philly ETE this year. I know it is a bit of promotion for the conference, but our conference planning committee knows we have the best content to date. This year, we are also partnering with Sonatype’s Maven Meetup.


Jason van Zyl, founder and CTO of Sonatype, will be speaking at Emerging Technologies for the Enterprise in Philadelphia. His talk, Next Generation Development Infrastructure: Maven, m2eclipse, Nexus & Hudson, will take place on Thursday April 8, 2010.

In this talk van Zyl will discuss the future of Maven, “specifically Maven 3.x, the rapidly approaching m2eclipse 1.0 release, the recent Nexus 2.0 release and roadmap, and changes that have been made to Hudson to provide better interoperability with Maven.”

“My presentation at Emerging Technologies for the Enterprise will cover a lot of ground, as there’s a lot going on a Sonatype these days. Just this past week we released Maven Studio for Eclipse, the only Eclipse Integrated Development Environment specifically optimized for Maven. The Studio essentially cuts the time a developer spends configuring development environments from multiple days to minutes.”

“I will also discuss the future of Maven, specifically migrating from Maven 2 to Maven 3.0. When migrating from Maven 2 to Maven 3.0 we’ve planned that, in most cases, users won’t experience any challenges. We’ve designed Maven 3.0 to be a drop-in replacement for Maven 2..”

Ahead of the Emerging Technologies for the Enterprise conference, Sonatype will be hosting a Maven Meetup. Wednesday April 7, we will be holding a day of presentations covering everything from OSGi Runtimes, to p2, Nexus, Tycho, m2eclipse, Selenium and Peaberry.
