JavaOne 2014 Waiting for VIJUG Members

Last years JaveOne event was said to have been the best JavaOne since Oracle took the reigns of the conference. Since then Java 8 has been officially released and from all I can tell Java 7 is finally gone beyond Java 6 and is the most widely used Java version for developers. And like myself a lot of us are looking forward to use Java 8 and one day even Java 9. And Java 8 is everywhere at JavaOne this year. Have a look at the schedule! Over 500 sessions in total with a lot of them related to Java 8. Going to JavaOne this year will definitely be a great opportunity to learn a LOT about Java 8.

May JUG

The May VIJUG meeting will once again be at the KIXEYE offices in Bastion Square.
Refael will regale us with tales of Cloudifier whilst we drink beer and munch on snacks.

“Cloudfier is an upcoming platform for rapid development and deployment of business applications on the cloud. Cloudfier raises the level of abstraction by taking care of most of the implementation minutia so developers can focus on addressing the business needs. That includes actual implementation language, database persistence and querying, authentication, API etc.”

Afterwards we shall retire to one of the many fine taverns in the area and partake of an ale.

6:30pm Thursday 30th May
