First of all, I want to point out that the "J" in JUG stands for "JVM Language" rather than "Java" these days. This event is for developer user groups focused on any of the plethora of programming languages now supported on the JVM. Having said that, we have pretty much every "Java" user group in the bay area participating in this event already. The capacity of the Oracle Conference Center in Redwood City is 450 and there is no reason we can not fill it to capacity on May 12th. Please help us to make this the biggest JUG gathering ever here in the bay area by blogging, tweeting and emailing this out to everyone.
Oracle is fully sponsoring this free event including the dinner and beer that evening. The evening starts with an update on the infrastructure changes being made to the java.net site. Plus, we have 2 passes to JavaOne and 2 Kindles preloaded with O'Reilly ebooks to give away. If that were not enough, we have the Java Posse recording their popular podcast live for us too. While there is still room, you can register here:
For those of you unable to attend in person, the event will also be streamed live that evening by Stephen Chin and the Silicon Valley JavaFX User Group here:
