Job markets are tough right now. Consider joining a User Group as a means to network with potential co-workers.
HI My Name is Aaron. And I work with Java Use Groups and Java Champions. Here is a typical email I get from someone who is interested in starting a Java User Group and how I help them get started.
Imagine a world where everybody could participate easily in a distributed yet secure Social Web. In such a world every one will be able to control their own information, and every business would be able to enter into a conversation with customers, researchers, government agencies and partners as easily as they can now start a conversation with someone on Facebook. What is needed to go in the direction of The Internet of Subjects Manifesto? What existing technologies can we build on? What is missing? What could the W3C contribute? What could others do? To participate in the discussion and meet other people with similar interests, and withness some actual implementations of this, visit the Santa Clara Social Web Camp wiki
I am absolutely thrilled to anounce that I will be talking at the Canberra JUG meeting next week (on Wednesday, September 9, to be exact), about BDD in general, and Easyb and JDave in particular:
Behaviour-Driven Development, or BDD, is an excellent development strategy that can help bridge the traditional gap between requirements and implementation. This talk will go discuss the basic...
Please join me at the 4th annual Silicon Valley Code Camp at Foothill College in Los Altos on October 3-4, 2009. It is shaping up to be even bigger and better than last year's event. Attendance is FREE, but space is limited. So, you do need to register in advance.
FISL (the Free Software International Forum) in Porto Alegre (BRAZIL) is a 4 days events about open source in all different domains. This year will be the 10th edition and SOUJava+RSJug are working together to put another JAVALI (Java Open Source technologies)
I have not posted here lately, the excuse is the same as always, but this time for a good cause, I have worked intensively in the book and the development of Eclipse plugin X-Card Tools.
I created a social network only for Java developers meeting around the source code for the following purposes:
- Dissemination of scientific research
- Learning Java Cardâ„¢
- Publicize events
Bruno Souza got a whole bunch of us together to participate in creating this short video - how Java Users Groups drive Java - from an unusual perspective :-)
This is the first JavaOne for JUG-USA and we are holding our first national JUG-USA Summit on Tuesday night in conjunction with the Java Community Process (JCP) Party. JUG-USA also won the JUG Registration contest for this JavaOne. As a result, JUG-USA members attending the conference will have a special meeting with James Gosling on Wednesday. See the full blog post for further information and links to these JUG-USA event details.
At CommunityOne West, Kevin Nilson and I are leading a session on Tips and Tricks for Starting and Maintaining a Successful User Group. Of particular interest to the JUG Leadership Community, we will be discussing the synergy we are seeing between our Silicon Valley Web JUG and the much younger Silicon Valley Google Technology User Group.
I did a couple of presentation on IEEE Open Source week at Cairo university, Faculty of Engineering.
The opportunities afforded by affiliating together all the JUGs residing in the United States as part of an umbrella JUG-USA organization seem self-evident to me. In my efforts to bring JUGs around the country on board, I am learning that this is simply not the case. So, please read the full blog entry for my thoughts on this matter.
The campus party last year, brought together a large number of Internet users, developers, bloggers, adding more than 4,000 subscribers. This year we more than 6,000 participants in one event. The campus party in 2009, each participant received a tent, to stay somewhere in the event. You can find several people in the country, this region of the South to the North. I am representing a Java user...
Lots of interesting community discussions happening on Campus Party, a 7x24 event happening in Brazil
We are officially launching JUG-USA today. It is an umbrella Java User Group (JUG) which local JUGs from all over the United States can affiliate with. It is my hope that a true synergy will emerge from this undertaking. Please see the full post for more information and the pertinent links.
