The March/April issue of Java Magazine is all about community. A thriving community is vital to Java technology and the Java language. We give you a hands-on guide to Java citizenship--from taking the first steps to participation to taking on leadership positions and launching events. Learn how to host a hackathon, become a Java Champion, revive your JUG, and much more!
For this issue, we took our tagline, "by and for the Java community," to heart. It features the first-ever guest editor: Agnes Crepet, Lyon JUG leader and Duchess leader. Agnes was a great resource and helped us put together this issue of Java Magazine. She suggested story ideas, wrote about reinvigorating your JUG, and gave guidance throughout the process. The way she enthusiastically agreed to be guest editor is just another great example of the Java community in action. Many other community members came together to make this issue a success, and we are grateful.
Also in the issue:
- Java In Robotics — Meet Java pioneer Paul Perrone and some of his robots.
- Using Java 8 Lambda Expressions — We continue our series on exploring lambda expressions.
- Responsive Interportlet Communication with Ajax — Build portlets that communicate with each other and update dynically on the client.
- JavaFX in Spring — Stephen Chin uses Spring to build out data screens in a JavaFX application.
