JUG, JUG, JUG

It's been a heck of a year for JUGs in France. 2008 started with only one physical (java.developpez.com is a great virtual JUG) and aging JUG with almost no activity and we are now, 12 months later, with no less than 8 JUGs country-wide!

The ParisJUG was the first one (it already averages around 180/200 attendees every month) and others quickly followed: Breizh JUG (Rennes), Tours, Grenoble JUG, Bordeaux JUG, Nantes JUG, Lorraine JUG (Nancy?), and last but not least the RivieraJUG (Nice)!

I also hear rumors of something going on in Toulouse. I'm sure we can do even better with Lille, Lyon, Marseille, Clermont-Ferrand, ... Given the hard task of running a JUG (getting a venue, speakers, not upsetting anyone with the content or the sponsors, etc...) the goal of still being at 8 active JUGs next year would be a good one IMO.

I'll be speaking about GlassFish v3 Prelude in Paris and Sophia Antipolis in January :
14 janvier 2009 @ Sophia-Antipolis: Mini-conférence Java EE. Great to be back there after a long hiatus (darn, Tiger seems like ages ago!).
Soirée Java EE 6 (13/01/2009). Doing this one with Antonio Goncalves.

Just like elsewhere, the java community is alive and well (in case anybody asks!).

I had the chance to speak about Maven @ JUGs in Paris, Nantes & Tours and it was always a pleasure. Thanks for all guys who organized them and those who came.

Cheers.

The Lorraine JUG will be hosted by ESIAL (http://www.esial.uhp-nancy.fr) in Nancy. In the future, we also hope to organize one or two events a year in Metz.
