I'm (Adam Bien) working as freelancer with Java since JDK 1.0, with Servlets/EJB since 1.0 and before the advent of J2EE in several large-scale applications. I am an architect and developer (with usually 20/80 distribution) in Java (SE / EE / FX) projects.

I have written several books about JavaFX, J2EE, and Java EE, and I'm the author of Real World Java EE Patterns—Rethinking Best Practices and . I'm writing books and articles during my travels and sometimes even unproductive meetings.

In my leisure I participate in the JCP as an Expert Group member for the Java EE 6 and 7, EJB 3.X, JAX-RS, CDI, and JPA 2.X JSRs.

I am is also a Java Champion, NetBeans Dream Team Founding Member, , and I was chosen by attendees of my sessions as JavaOne 2009 and double 2011, 2012, 2014 and triple 2013 Rock Star.

I'm speaking regularly on conferences, but I'm neither a professional speaker nor writer. I'm just really enjoying to write code and kill the bloat. ...and Java is perfect for that.

I'm organizing three times a year Java related workshops at Munich's Airport: .

Twitter, youtube, github and others:

Mainly because of the exciting Java world and so chronic lack of time I do not participate on any other social networks except twitter and Google+.
