Pune JUG organized a meetup at the Symbiosis Institute of Computer Studies and Research (SICRSR) college campus on December 14th.
Led by Harshad Oak (Java Champion and organizer of the IndicThreads conference), Pune JUG is the oldest JUG in India and boasts a vibrant developer community. This month's meetup was focused on the Java EE 7 platform and the ecosystem that is building up around it. The meeting was led by Oracle India's own Vijay Nair. Vijay is a good friend and a lead developer with Oracle's FLEXCUBE development group in India. Among many other things like evangelizing Java EE at local Java user groups and conferences, Vijay contributes heavily to the Cargo Tracker Java EE Blue Prints project in his spare time.
The event saw an attendance of close to around 100 people with a lot of demos/code and high quality interactions with the audience. Vijay presented no less than three sessions at the meetup:
Overall, this was a very positive experience with developers giving two thumbs way up to the Java EE 7 platform!
