Event Description

Hello OrlandoJUG!

This will be our first meeting of 2016! DeVry has moved and can host us after all!

The new address is:

DeVry University
7352 Greenbrier Parkway Room 103
Orlando FL 32819


We have special guests - Heather VanCura, of the JCP. That's the Java Community Process! 

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:

JSF 2.3: Continued Return on Investment with Incremental Innovation

  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: HTTP/2 and Reactive Programming in Java EE 8

  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,

Michael Levin

I just talked with Ed - he's going to post an abstract of his presentation here and in the OJUG Town group. Keep an eye out for it. He's the JSF Spec Lead! He wrote a book on JSF, too.

Happy 10th year, JCertif!

InfoQ Reading List

Google Software Engineering Culture

Several Google engineering practices have been largely adopted across the company until today and still contribute to its success. In 2017 a staff software engineer published some of these practices, not limited to software development. Today, Google fosters a team culture of creativity, autonomy, and innovation.

Presentation: Are We Really Cloud-Native?

Bert Ertman goes beyond the hype of being Cloud-native and focuses instead on what being Cloud-native actually requires in terms of skills and experience for Java Developers and how it affects and impacts traditional systems design.

Change to AWS Lambda Networking Reduces Cold Start Time for VPC Customers

AWS announced changes to how Lambda functions connect to resources in a Virtual Private Cloud (VPC). This change — using pre-created network interfaces instead of network interfaces created for each function execution environment — cuts out a major factor in "cold starts" for serverless functions.

Article: Rethinking Flink’s APIs for a Unified Data Processing Framework

Since its very early days, Apache Flink has followed the philosophy of taking a unified approach to batch and streaming. The core building block is the “continuous processing of unbounded data streams, with batch as a special, bounded set of those streams.” Recent updates to the Flink APIs include architectural designs by the community to support batch and streaming unification in Apache Flink.
