JUG leaders, did you order your Java 7 launch kit already?
By alexismp on Jun 05, 2011
Assuming the outcome of the JSR 336's (Java SE 7) public review ballot is positive, we're really close now to a final release of Java 7.
To celebrate the launch of the first major version of Java since 2006, Oracle has put together a Java 7 launch kit and will host a live event on July 7th to celebrate the release with speakers in Redwood Shores (Oracle's HQ), Sao Paulo and London, all with live webcasting
If you can't make it to one of those events, you can have one of your own and this is where the launch kit comes into the picture - each kit includes a Java 7 presentation, code samples, and T-shirts. Simply go to this page and request one. JUG requests will be considered first while supplies last.
Note that if you want an Oracle speaker to attend your event you need not wait and ask for it asap and certainly before June 14th. Beer and pizza can also be on Oracle, so please share your event plans with us, and we'll do our best to accommodate you.
