BOJUG meet at Thoughtworks

Last Saturday was the first BOJUG meet at Thoughtworks Bangalore. Me and Amit went together. This was the first time that both of us would attend outside Chambers. As usual I was the photographer :)

Vaibhav talking on JavaFX preview SDK

Satish talked about Beans Binding and validation

This meet was more than three and a half hours, but it was real worth. Vaibhav gave a talk on JavaFX preview SDK. It was a real cool presentation. Satish talked about Beans Binding and Validation. This went right over my head as my Java knowledge is very very limited, I am almost an odd one out there :) Sriram talked about Tomcat internals. This was interesting as I was planning to fiddle around with Tomcat.

Finally, I took the group pictures. Many of the attendees are not in the picture. They had already left. Three and a half hours is kind of tiresome with a hungry stomach.

BOJUG meet on July 26

Yesterday Bangalore was rocked by a number of bomb blasts. Today we had a BOJUG meet. I was not even sure how many people would turn up but thankfully about 10 people were there. I was happy to see the brave souls who did not let yesterdays violent incident affect their lives.

Sriram gave a talk on  "Continuous Integration - What you need to know before implementing it". It was a very interesting talk on software development and how a little bit of discipline could help in producing bug free software. A lot of the stuff is already known, but not followed. I hope one day it is followed in my team. Hopefully we will then stop having those inadvertent build failures and regressions.

And now the surprise. I also gave a talk on Solaris features. Since Sriram was late, I was filling in. I gave a talk on Solaris history and features and told people how many of the server grade features are becoming necessary for the desktops. One day I will give a more Java related talk here. Lets see how it goes.

Many of you always wanted to see me in a BOJUG or BOSUG group picture. You can see me above. Anil took the picture above.

And heres the group picture taken by me which has Anil.

As I write this blog, news is floating in of serial blasts in Ahmedabad. I really do not understand who is gaining from all this but the poor and innocent people are the ones who are suffering.

BOJUG June 2008 Meet

Bangalore Open Java User's Group meeting was held on the 27th of June in Divyasree Chambers. This was my first BOJUG meeting. Now you must be surprised what a Open Solaris guy is doing in BOJUG. Well it doesn't hurt to know about new things and make new friends.





BOJUG GANG

The BOJUG Gang


At the BOJUG meet, Rohan gave a talk title From Journeyman to Master. The presentation described attributes of a Rockstar programmer and what one needs to do to become a Rockstar programmer. It was one of the best presentations that I had seen. The other Java related presentation went bonkers .... i need to sharpen my Java skills and act a bit more literate next time :)
