Oh we are going full EE THIS THURSDAY!
We have two great 30 min sessions for Thursday. The first one is famous author, Josh Juneau (I actually worked with him co-writing the Java 7 Recipes book, and he is phenomenal. He knows his stuff and is always curious about what’s new and upcoming. He elbows with the likes of Arun Gupta and Peter Pilgrim which are big pillars in the Java EE Community!
And for those of us who remember the old movie theaters, this is a DOUBLE FEATURE, on which John Freeman will be talking about WebSockets. The official JavaEE “Hammer” for the many problem nails! He’ll cover what are WebSockets, best practices and integration with Spring 4. Even if you knew about WebSockets, this presentation still worth coming for! Sign-up now! http://www.meetup.com/ChicagoJUG/events/143767062/
Tut-tut we are at 600 and is November (800!)
Keep spreading the word and getting people to sign-up! We have our stretch goals, and we want to get to 800 by the end of the year. We can still do it! Let everyone you know sign-up and tell them we are here to help.
SOOO, you couldn’t go to JavaOne? Don’t despair, the Sessions are now ONLINE
Go and click on the link, and get bombarded by so much awesomeness you will go blind! (Previous sentence must be read on Jeff Black’s Kung Fu Panda voice, go ahead, try again J). But seriously, the first batch of content is coming out, and you will have the opportunity to listen to all the world-class sessions from the comfort of your home (or work). http://www.oracle.com/javaone/sessions/index.html

Sshhhh, we are planning an event for this December (it’s a secret!)
We are thinking of having a get-together and plain just talk fun for December, details are going to come soon! Usually December is hard to get speakers scheduled for both tracks, so we might just have one speaker event in December, and then a plain-old, let’s get together and be merry! Have any ideas? Drop me a line firstname.lastname@example.org
