There is my proposal for JUG-AFRICA agenda. Everyone is free to comment and add interesting ideas.
I will detail each point in my blog later.
I heard from a friend that prolific blogger and friend Felipe Gaucho had passed away last March, 05.
Felipe was very active at Java community, helping people at mailing lists, writing blogs. He was a JUG Leader (Ceara at Brazil), Glassfish active user and speaker.

I love owls; they are so elegant and have a strong personality (too bad in so many years I've been unable to take photos at any of them!). Unfortunately in my culture (and probably many others) they have also got a bad reputation, as they were considered messengers of bad fortune. It's for this reason that in italian a "gufo" is also a person who, for innate attitude or purportedly,...
Is Go a Java replacement? Of course not, but I do wonder what Google's up to.
