Visitors and some Demographics
Browsers and Technologies
Looking at the mobile devices is a bit more interesting. A total of 284 different devices identified themselves and the crowd was lead by Apple's iPad and iPhone. Second place goes to a bunch of Android powered flagship phones.
What content are you guys here for? The top the pages this year are responsible of roughly 1/4th of the overall traffic. Beginning with the January Heroes of Java Interview with Ward Cunningham (9,932 Pageviews) the Galleria kick-off posting (6,573) also had some fans. The form based authentication example with GlassFish and PrimeFaces was the third most viewed post on the blog.
Seven Conferences in 12 Months
It all started with Jfokus in February. Followed by my JUDCon trip to Boston, the JavaZone in Oslo and JavaOne together with Oracle OpenWorld in September. Devoxx Belgium in between and Doag Conference in Nuremberg and finally Jay-Day in Munich made this an exhausting but wonderful year. Given the fact, that it is not officially part of my job description to be part of the conference circus I enjoy talking about my favorite topics and I'm glad you like to listen! So, thanks to everybody attending one of two of my sessions! Looking forward meeting you somewhere next year!
Its a wrap! Happy new year!
