The vJUG, a virtual Java user group, presents live streaming technical sessions about topics related to Java, JVM, Java EE, Internet of Things and more. Organized by Mani Sarkar and Simon Maple from the London Java Community, their aim is to get the greatest minds and speakers of the Java industry to give talks and presentations in the form of webinars and live streaming from JUG meetups.
First session: How is Java/JVM built? Tuesday, March 24, 2015 at 14:45 UTC, 15:45 in Germany, 10:45am in New York, 7:45am in San Francisco, and 22:45 in Beijing
Mani Sarkar and Daniel Bryant will give an overview of the Adopt OpenJDK program. They’ll explain why developers should get involved, how to participate, and how front-end developers can take advantage of the Adopt OpenJDK. Watch the session live at http://nighthacking.com/event/javaland-2015/
Second session: What's coming in Java.Next? Wednesday, March 25, 2015 at 14:45 UTC, 15:45 in Germany, 10:45am in New York, 7:45am in San Francisco, and 22:45 in Beijing
Learn from Heather VanCura how you can take part in Java technology by Adopting a JSR. This session give a brief overview of the Adopt-a-JSR program. Andres Almiray will discuss JSR 377, Desktop|Embedded Application API; Anatole Tresch will discuss JSR 354, Money & Currency API; and Ed Burns will discuss the two JSRs he is currently leading, JSR 369, Java Servlet 4.0 Specification and JSR 372, JavaServer Faces (JSF 2.3) Specification.
Two sessions are scheduled for next week. They are live from the JavaLand Conference in Germany, in partnership with the Nighthacking community. You can watch them online at http://nighthacking.com/event/javaland-2015/

If you attend, don't miss: the Java 9 and Beyond keynote session, the iOS Development with Eclipse and Java - Yes it is possible! conference session and the Eclipse and The Cloud Hosted Development Platform BoF
Java 9 will introduce a standard module system to the platform in order to modularize the platform itself, improve performance and security, and simplify the development and maintenance of large applications. Mark will explain the impact and benefits of Java 9, and then offer a highly-speculative sneak preview of "life after Java 9," the advanced features currently in development for the Java virtual machine and language.
In this demo focused session we'll show you how Oracle enables you to develop Java applications that install and run on iOS devices (and Android too). Leveraging Java for business logic, rich set of UI components for HTML5 based UIs, device feature integration and a complete MVC you can create on-device cross platform application with ease. We'll explain the architecture and show you the development experience in Eclipse.
BoF Session: Eclipse and The Cloud Hosted Development Platform Wednesday, March 11, 2015 - 19:00 to 20:00, Sandpebble AB
Cloud has emerged as a leading platform for application deployment, but can it act as the platform for application development? How do you integrate Eclipse and Mylyn with cloud hosted ALM solutions? How does Hudson continuous integration work in such an environment? What features should you be looking for when picking up a cloud platform for your development team? Join us as we discuss and demonstrate the emerging trends in cloud based enterprise application development.

If you haven't looked at the NetBeans IDE lately, you'll be blown away by the fast speed and performance enhancements. If you are completely new to the NetBeans IDE, see how easy it is to get started and be productive. For example, did you know NetBeans can refactor all your code from Java SE 7 to Java SE 8? See how in this session, lead by NetBeans expert Geertjan Wielenga.
Virtual Technology Summits (VTS) are interactive, online events, sponsored by the Oracle Technology Network (OTN). VTSs are free, but you must register:
• EMEA – 25 February - 9:00 to 13:00 BST REGISTER
