The Tampa Java User Group's post about their upcoming January 11, 2011 meeting showed up in my JUGs blog search feed yesterday. The meeting will feature David Chandler from Google, who will be talking about running Google Web Toolkit 2.1 on the Google AppEngine. The Tampa (Florida, US) JUG is run by Vladimir Vivien (pictured left). Vladimir is a software engineer in the Tampa Bay area, and...
This past year has seen enormous change for Java, and significant resolution of the uncertainties that were occasioned by the long, drawn-out acquisition of Sun by Oracle. Things are indeed clearer now, the direction is being spelled out, the roadmap for Java's near-term future is coming into focus. But, as is always the case, clarity brings out differences of opinion. With uncertainty, there'...
Vitor Souza, one of the coordinators of Espírito Santo JUG in Brazil, gave a three-part presentation earlier this year at JUG Trento (Italy) on what's new in Java EE 6. Vitor currently lives in Trento, and he's been participating actively as a member of their Java community. When Vitor gave his presentations, they were videotaped by members of JUG Trento. Vitor pointed me to the links listed...
I've recently been browsing the IndiJava.in site, the online home of India's Java User Group. IndiJava.in popped up in the blog feed search that I have set up to discover JUG-related blog posts, when guru posted "(Event) ACM Bangalore Annual Quiz and Challenge of Code Felicitation 2011" a few days ago.

Veera Sundar Veera writes: There was some...
JavaOne Brazil wrapped up this past Thursday, and JavaOne Beijing opens on Monday. Quite a schedule! I doubt many people are attending both conferences; but I have a feeling that at least one Sao Paulo attendee (who has at least some international "fame") will also be showing up in Beijing... Arun Gupta, who attended JavaOne Brazil, did a great job of documenting his experience at the...
IntelliJ IDEA was just released. JetBrains Marketing and PR Assistant Eugenia Dubova described the new release as focusing on enhancing IntelliJ IDEA's "depth and usability" (while previous versions focussed on expanding the product feature set). In an email messsage, Eugenia provided the following overview of the new release: IntelliJ IDEA 10 brings many improvements for already supported...
We can't call it a surprising result, but a clear majority of developers who voted in last week's java.net poll do not consider Java to be a dead end for enterprise application development. Still, the voting breakdown provides some interesting food for thought regarding people's views of Java and the alternatives for enterprise development (even though this is not a scientific poll). A total of...
The Istanbul Java User Group is pioneering a new approach to serving its community: the JUG is offering a series of free Java courses, offered over four consecutive Saturdays. The first course, titled "What is Eclipse?", took place this past Saturday, November 27. Istanbul JUG leader Taner Diler described the courses as follows: "We plan to give lessons as a session. And each lesson is like...
