On Thursday Feb 21th, Oracle Brasil welcomed the SouJava JUG to its new Oracle Office in Sao Paulo. SouJava does several meetings across different places. Companies like Red Hat, Google, and GlobalCode already offered their offices for previous meetings. Bruno Souza was there to talk about the importance of the Adopt a JSR program and the participation of JUGs on the Java Community Process. SouJava voted Yes on the recent Public Review for JMS 2.0.
To bring attention to the launch of Java EE 7 and its new specifications, I presented "The new features of JMS 2.0" (pt_BR), basically the same content as Reza Rahman presented during JavaOne Latin America (but this time, in portuguese; until Reza doesn't become fluent). There was also a presentation from Ricardo Ferreira talking about In-memory Data Processing with Elastic Data Grids, an introduction to highly scalable architectures, with a demonstration using Coherence, GlassFish and WebLogic. His presentation was also in portuguese.
I gave Google+ a try and used Google+ Events to schedule and invite developers from everywhere and used the Hangout feature to chat and live stream the meeting. You can see the recording on YouTube. Don't forget to also visit our GlassFish community on G+!
