In this blog, Marketing Assistant Priya Khaira-Hanks looks at two separate aspects of how a tech company is likely to promote itself: PR & Marketing. What do they mean? What’s the difference? And how do they differ in the specific context of the Payara Platform? Continue reading “Marketing and PR: Making Sense of Complexity!”
Earlier this year, Payara Services was honoured with a Queen’s Award for Enterprise – International Trade. This is the UK’s most prestigious business award, often called the “Knighthood for Businesses”.
Payara Services provides stable, supported open source software. Bringing our solutions to a global audience entails a wider skillset in the team than can be confined to Java developers and engineers, however. Our Marketing, Sales and HR departments have vital roles to play, with our Fish Food blogs providing a peek behind the curtain (or under the hood!) of running an award-winning, fast-growing, values-driven tech business.
In this blog, Marketing Assistant Priya Khaira-Hanks, looks at Company Values and how they might inform and shape Marketing strategy.

Long-time followers of Team Payara will know that Payara Week is our annual company-wide event. It’s our opportunity for team bonding, to discuss and develop ideas for Payara’s future success, and, most importantly, have lots of fun!
Last year, our fourth Payara Week took place at our Portugal office, located in Funchal on the island of Madeira. The fantastic event energised the team, and as the time for the fifth of these exciting company summits rolled round, we were faced with the question – what would Payara Week look like when pandemic-related restrictions meant it had to be virtual?
The answer? Thanks to the invention, imagination and innovation of our HR and Engagement team – and the fantastic attitude of Payarans all over the globe – Payara Week was just as creative, inspiring and relationship-building than in previous years! Payara Cloud lead developer Patrik Duditš invites you to find out more…

Payara Services are proud to announce that we’ve chosen the Bumblebee Conservation Trust as our Payara Charity of the Year!
About the Bumblebee Conservation Trust
The Bumblebee Conservation Trust was established because of serious concerns over declining numbers of bumblebees. These insects are not only well-loved but also valued for the way they pollinate crops and wildflowers.
The charity aims to enhance understanding of the work these industrious insects do, why they are declining in numbers and how a diverse range of people can help. They also work to increase the quality and quantity of bumblebee habitats.
Comic Relief is a major charity based in the UK, working towards the vision of a just world, free from poverty. Red Nose Day – a day of activities and events to raise money – is its most famous fundraising effort.
In aid of Red Nose Day 2021, Team Payara contributed to a fundraising project where the iconic ‘Red Nose’ logo was painted onto the rugby pitch local to our UK office. Continue reading “Payara Services Seen from the Sky for Red Nose Day”

Platform.SH is an end-to-end web platform for agile teams: a PaaS that aims to manage the application and the services that the application needs, such as a database. Developing close to MicroProfile and Jakarta EE, like Payara Platform, it supports both specifications.
We’re honoured to be guests for the company’s weekly live discussion, hosted on YouTube with live chat. Our engineers Rudy De Busscher and Fabio Turizo will discuss moving your microservices to the cloud with Chad Carlson and Otávio Santana from Platform.SH.
Join Payara engineers for an informative and practical webinar on the recent updates and enhancements to the Payara Platform in the latest release (Payara Platform February Release).
Every month, we answer questions on the most recent release and also discuss a key theme – this month, it’s MicroProfile 4.0, now fully supported in the Payara Platform Community Edition. We have covered what you can expect from the latest specifications in a blog, but please use this opportunity to ask any questions you might have about MicroProfile and its new iteration.
Full support for MicroProfile 4.0 follows us announcing we are part of the MicroProfile Working Group. The MicroProfile project was born as a community initiative to optimise Enterprise Java with a microservices standard platform, and the Eclipse Foundation‘s MicroProfile Working Group proposes and gain approval for new common APIs and functionality – in turn drawing on the knowledge of a wide variety of different vendors. As one of the contributors, Payara engineers will shape and drive the future of the MicroProfile specifications.
Traditionally based in Atlanta, USA, the DevNexus Conference’s goal is to connect professional software developers from all over the world, and help them hear from and interact directly with internationally acclaimed presenters and technologists while also connecting with like-minded developers.
Due to Covid-19, this year’s event will be a free, online-only event. Talks will be presented without interruption, after each there will be a live discussion session with the speaker.
Originally in Montreal, Canada, ConFoo is a multi-technology conference for developers, gathering over 100 presentations by popular international speakers. This year’s event will be virtual, and will take place online from 22 to 26 February 2021 – with Rudy’s talk to be found on the final day of the conference
Join us on Wednesday January 27th, at 3.00PM GMT, to find out what 2021 looks like for Payara Platform.
Our CEO Steve Millidge will be taking a look at the past year for Payara, and then providing a high-level overview of the next year – before zeroing in on the next few months.
He will be providing a wider perspective of our products, performance and future plans than in our usual roadmaps, which focus solely on the past few months and what’s coming up in the shorter term – so if you’ve never attended a Payara Roadmap Update before, now is the chance to get full view of the plan for Payara!
You’ll also have the chance to ask questions and provide feedback.
Foojay are now running a Java focused stand at the virtual FOSDEM conference, traditionally taking place in Brussels – and our own Rudy De Busscher will be delivering an online talk.
