Antonio Goncalves is a senior software architect living in Paris. Focused on Java development since the late 1990s, his career has taken him to different countries and companies where he now works as a recognized consultant. Antonio loves to create bonds with the community.
So, he created the Paris Java User Group in 2008 and co-created Devoxx France in 2012.
Antonio wrote his first book on Java EE 5, in French, in 2007. He then joined the JCP to become an Expert Member of various JSRs (Java EE 8, Java EE 7, Java EE 6, CDI 2.0, JPA 2.0, and EJB 3.1) and wrote Beginning Java EE 7 and Beginning Java EE 8 with Apress. Still hooked on sharing his knowledge, Antonio Goncalves decided to then self-publish his later fascicles.
For the last few years, Antonio has given talks at international conferences, mainly on Java, distributed systems and micro-services, including JavaOne, Devoxx, GeeCon, The Server Side Symposium, Jazoon, and many Java User Groups. He has also written numerous technical papers and articles for IT websites (DevX) and IT magazines (Java Magazine, Programmez, Linux Magazine). Since 2009, he has been part of the French Java podcast called Les Cast Codeurs.
For his expertise and all of his work for the Java community, Antonio has been elected Java Champion.
Antonio is a graduate of the Conservatoire National des Arts et Métiers in Paris (with an engineering degree in IT), Brighton University (with an MSc in object-oriented design), Universidad del Pais Vasco in Spain, and UFSCar University in Brazil (MPhil in Distributed Systems).
