This will be our first meeting of 2016! DeVry has moved and can host us after all!
The new address is:
7352 Greenbrier Parkway Room 103
Orlando FL 32819
Not only that, but Heather's invited Ed Burns, Java Server Faces (JSF) specification lead!
This is a big deal because first of all, Heather lives all the way out west in California. She's going to fly out here just for YOU!
She'll tell you all about the Java Community Process and how it affects the language you use every day. And that's not all! Ed is the point person for JSF. Ed's is a software stylist, speaker, and author, currently working in the server side Java space.
Ed Burns' presentation will consist of excerpts from two of his JavaOne 2015 presentations:
This session showcases the commitment to continued innovation in the standard UI for Java EE that enables customers to do new things with their existing JSF applications and skills. JSF 2.3 was announced at JavaOne 2014. The session takes a look into the progress of JSR 372 since then, with a special emphasis on contributions from the community.
Servlet 4.0 was announced at JavaOne 2014. This session takes a look at the progress of JSR 369 since then, with special emphasis on the Grizzly implementation and the unique features it provides for doing HTTP/2 and reactive programming on Java EE 8.
Now, we want to give Heather and Ed a warm welcome so let's have a big turnout. Invite your friends. If we have more than 40 RSVP's I'll change the venue to accommodate everyone. Hey, we'll have pizza galore and I can say one thing for sure: Heather's been involved with the Java community for as long as I can remember. She just flew out to Dakar, Senegal and gave a talk for our buds at the SeneJUG www.senejug.com - I helped start that group along with Lamine Ba. I'm proud to say that.
Plus, she's arranging a Google hangout so that the Senegal JUG (and others) can session attend remotely. How about that?!
Meanwhile, if you're interested in giving a presentation, sponsoring the group by buying pizza or want to get otherwise involved, please give me a call. 321-252-9322.
And, please keep an eye on this announcement - I'll update it as details firm up.
Also, we have a shiny new Meetup group - http://www.meetup.com/orlandojug/ How about that! So, since Meetup is ubiquitous these days, I ponied up for a year. Hopefully, everyone will migrate over here to Codetown and write up some tasty blog posts.
As always, I hope to see many of you at this meeting.
All the best,
