Rod Johnson's SV-WEB-JUG Visit: Standing Room Only
Rod Johnson, CEO of SpringSource, gave a free talk to the Silicon Valley Web Developer JUG at the Googleplex in Mountain View on August 18, 2008. It was a standing room only event with more than 200 local Java developers in attendance. If you missed it, the entire talk was recorded by Google and the video is now available on YouTube. The slides are a bit blurry on the video, but, Rod was kind enough to give us a copy of his slides too.
In September, Mark Hansen is visiting the SV-WEB-JUG to give a talk on RESTful Web Services. If you would like to attend Mark's talk, please register in advance for this free event. This could be another standing room only event and this time Google has asked us to cut off registration at a maximum of 200 people.
By the way, the SV-WEB-JUG has a calendar of upcoming events, an RSS Feed of meeting announcements, and a low volume announcement-only mailing list (also with an RSS Feed). These are all hosted on the java.net project for the JUG. Unless you need or want separate web hosting for your JUG site, I highly recommend the JUG project support on the java.net site. Check it out!
