Adopt-a-JSR Online Meeting A Success

As you may be aware, the Adopt-a-JSR online meeting was held on January 18. The meeting was led by Bruno Souza from SouJava, Martijn Verberg from the London Java Community, Arun Gupta from the GlassFish/Java EE team and Heather VanCura from the JCP. Heather opened the call with an overview & introductions, Martijn and Bruno shared the program details and encouraged JUG members to get more involved in adopting JSRs and Arun provided an update on the Java EE 7 JSRs being adopted, along with some very exciting use cases from JUG Chennai and BeJUG.

The meeting was a success with 40 Java User Group participants from all over the world. There will be a follow up meeting scheduled at the end of February, so stay tuned.

The recording and slides from the meeting are available on the JCP.org Multimedia page.

Join Adopt-a-JSR Online Meetup!

As you might be aware, the Adopt-a-JSR program was started by the London Java Community and SouJava to encourage more grassroots level participation in the JCP. The idea is for developers to closely engage with a JSR they are interested in through their own JUG. No less than 15 JUGs worldwide have already joined the Adopt-a-JSR program including Chennai JUG, BeJUG, GoJava, Morrocco JUG, Campinas JUG and ItpJava.

The folks behind the Adopt-a-JSR program are now hosting an online meetup on January 18th! Anyone can join the meetup to learn more details about the program, how it benefits them and their JUG, and how they can provide feedback. Martijn Verberg from the LJC, Bruno Souza from SouJava, Arun Gupta from the Java EE/GlassFish team and Heather VanCura from the JCP program office will be leading the meetup.
