Happenings for April 12, 2013

From: Freddy G.

We're doing Heavy Lifting! (In the cloud that is).  April 16th

Last call, last call! sign-up for our Heavy Listing in the Cloud meet up next Tuesday at the CME presented by no other than its principal developer Michael Minella. Don't miss this opportunity to learn from the actual creators!


Let's grow our Meetup (Let's target 250 for next week).

Let your friends and buddies know about the Chicago Java Users Group Meetup. Ask them to sign-up, and grow those member numbers. We're at 182, but we know there are much more of you out there. Reach out and get them to sign-up. The more people in our meet up, the more benefits we can bring to the community (More raffles, sponsors, benefits, giveaways).  Can you make it happen? can we grow to 250 by next week? I'm counting on you!


Psst, wanna get a Enterprise Architect Certification for 50 bucks?

Right now there is the new Enterprise Architect Certification beta program going on, and it only costs you 50$ (Instead of the usual 300$). A great opportunity to snatch that certification. Read all about it here

CJUG is a non-profit!

We have been cleaning up all the little things within the CJUG. Our board have been very busy preparing for this year and one of the last milestones is that we're re-incorporated as a NonProfit. What that means is that we can now manage and attract larger events and more capital. And what that means is more benefits are coming your way. Say Yay to Michelle, Scott and the Board! (Also if you think you want to participate or just talk to the CJUG Board, go to and contact us. We're all ears :)


Have questions? Will answer! (Mentorship Program)

Your local JUG have resources to help you out in your problems. Have a tough concept that is not quite clear? (Encryption), or are you curious of what technology is available for no-sql databases that can help you in your project (Hadoop et al)? Then go and sign-up to talk to one of our mentors. We're here to help you be the best you can be!
