My mailbox aggregates several Java User Groups and other specialized sources of information about the Java universe, with special guests like CEJUG and the Java EE community. Many of these Java sources are used by consultant companies to hire smart people, and since last year I am reading a desperate growing interest about skilled Java developers. More: few days ago I was having a coffee with...

For the last few years, java.net portal is supporting for free my blogs and my projects. I am very thankful for SUN and Collabnet for this excellent resource, and I am pretty sure all people involved in the migration are aware about the importance of java.net in the Java community.
So: good luck for the ones upgrading the software and see you on the next week :) I will prepare some special entry...

Winter time in Porto Alegre, nice time for a long chimarrÃ£o with my family and also a good time to finally met some of my virtual friends from the RSJUG - one of the oldest and most active JUGs in Brazil.
The Java agenda of my holidays in Brazil started with a brief visit to DATACOM - a leading telecom solutions provider. After a brief talk with the DATACOM Java developers I brought them a...

James Golsling introduced a brief view on the Java world this morning at ZÃ¼rich. It is always a joy to listen a successful geek onthe stage, probably one of the most successful geek of the last few decades. He talked about the modern Java world and about our forever perspective (following his words, forever == the next ten years). Here it comes the highlights:
Statistics, specially on smart...

Java conferences are always a joy of technology and networking
but sometimes we just miss its surroundings because it is quite
difficult to concentrate in our lives while we are exposed to a large
amount of cool information. Good meals, city attractions and a lot of
interesting moments are just skipped in favor of the Java novelties on
the stage. The more you participate of such events, the more...

The SUN Certification Reception during JavaOne brought us one of the most wanted news: the memory tests will be replaced by real coding certification. We can wait the new certification model up to the the end of this year as far I remember (the drinks and cocktails were really competing with the front speakers.. remarkable party).
I am still looking for official pages about that great news, but...

Jazoon conference offered me the management of the Jazoon Bloggers SQUAD, a group of smart geeks responsible for spreading the word about the conference, before, during and after Jazoon 2009.
So, very nice to meet you. I am Felipe GaÃºcho and my blog is here. I am a Senior Software Engineer living in ZÃ¼rich for the last 2.5 years and I speak English and Portuguese. I am still working on my...

JavaOne is over now, a week of strong networking and some news from the Java Universe and its business. I need to wait more one hour to my boarding time, so I guess it is a good moment to a draft of topics I can remember after the last night at the Chieftain:
Pervasive JavaFX: this was the technology of this JavaOne, it was quoted in almost all sessions I attended. A young technology (miles to...

One of the most impressive parts of JavaONE is its giant Pavilion, a fair of novelties that mixes commercial players of all sort - a real Java joy. From my last JavaONE I remember several interesting talks while walking by the booths, but many details were not properly registered and kind of forgotten with time. During JavaONE 2009 I plan to improve my journalism activities, scheduling formal...

The world of computing is recognizing once more the power of the Java platform as the de facto standard in producing quality software for diverse devices - including web browsers accessing services available in the cloud computing.
After a growing number of articles discussing the problems of the so called lightweight technologies, it is time for Google to endorse the strengths of Java -...

Few years ago, I was teaching Java in universities in Brazil, spending all my days and nights studying and thinking on how to become a better teacher and how to become a better Java professional. I was not much than an enthusiast Java developer full of dreams on how to transform the world through the Java technology.... a lot to say, a lot to discuss and to learn and to teach..
One day a new...

The 3rd edition of Jazoon conference is going to happen on June, 22-25, 2009 @ ZÃ¼rich, Switzerland. The call for papers is open until 15th January 2009, and it's a good chance to get visibility to your projects or products.
The first edition of the conference two years ago established the brand and a slot in the Java calendar, then a second edition in 2008 registered a more global audience...

My move from Brazil to Switzerland two years ago forced me to reorganize my carrier goals, to adapt to a different culture and also to keep an eye on my family happiness (at the end, the major goal). Now, things are getting clear again, and my passion for software development has proved to be the best strategy to overcome little issues.
The last few months were quite busy in my open-source...

CEJUG is organizing the Caravan Jazoon'08, a group of JUG members interested
in to participate of Jazoon'08. Inspired in similar initiatives by SouJava and other
groups, this one has a differential: the JUG serves not only as communication channel, but also as a secure source of information about
who are attending the conference - and it is a valuable input for conference organizers.

If you like Java and eventually football, you cannot miss it :)
