Make the Future Java!

August 1, 2012 By: Tori Wieldt

Last summer, we worked together to celebrate the release of Java 7 with 250+ local JUG celebrations, in 59 countries, attended by more than 30,000 Java community members. This summer, we're pleased to announce the Make the Future Java 2012 Java Outreach Program that offers learning resources and "Make the Future Java" Tool Kits, which include a DVD and some Java stickers, postcards and a poster, all celebrating your interest in Java. We encourage you to find creative ways to educate a new generation about Java:

  • Invite university students to your next JUG meeting
  • Volunteer in schools
  • Share your enthusiasm and passion for Java
  • Check out (and add to) the Make the Future Java photos on Facebook
  • Tell us about your outreach successes so we can share them
  • Tweet content for newbies with #new2java

Stay tuned for more events throughout the year. Together, we can inspire future technologists to learn about Java and the opportunities it brings.
