This is a reminder that we're having an OJUG meeting Thursday. Please RSVP here!

Wow, I must say that Ed's presentation last night was one of the best in the history of this group! Why? Ed recorded his interviews with the rock stars and played them as he went through the talk. Cool!

That meant we got to hear the voices of rock stars like James Gosling as they talked about what matters most to them in the software development world. 

We had new faces, like:

 Mandela

Evan

Rafael

and Ramya

A good time was had by all. Meanwhile, Edson has volunteered to give a talk at next month's meeting. Here are the topics:

Take a look and help decide by voting on which is the best one to hear.

If you'd like to present or sponsor (thanks to Evan of TekSystems for last nights delicious pizza and bev!) just shoot me an email or PM me. 

...Best,

Mike
