Adopt-a-JSR for Non-English Speakers

The JCP hosted an online meeting last week on the Adopt-a-JSR program for Non-English speakers.  There over twenty Java User Group (JUG) participants on the call, and there was interest from French, German, Spanish, Portuguese JUG members. We discussed the global collaboration ideals of the Adopt-a-JSR program, some tips and use cases for developing wiki pages in local languages, as well as some best practices for leading an Adopt-a-JSR effort.  We will meet again later in June to continue the momentum for participation in the Adopt-a-JSR program and also check in on progress for development of wiki pages in other languages.  Following the meeting, there has already been some interest in Arabic, French and Spanish!   Let me know if you would like assistance, have questions, or want help getting started.  The meeting recording and materials are posted on the JCP.org multimedia page now for your reading and listening pleasure.

Hi, I'm native Spanish speaker. I'd participate in the program. Is there any registration form or something like similar?

Good begining. There are also some Chinese JUG members who did not attend Adopt A JSR program just because of language difficulity.
