      Yeah it was a really awesome day, thanks Oracle! (It was just really sad when we had to give back those cool raspbery pi's - we got our hopes up too much)

    Thanks Jozi Jug, we need to make wealth for our motherland and stop underestimating our skills.

    Thanks Jozi JUG, it was a very informative day.

    Nice to get an overview of JEE 7 and Java 8.

    I enjoyed the Raspberry Pi session, and the 'Build your own EE stack' was thought-provoking. Loved it!

    Like Richard said: it's time to move on from the outdated stuff in Java, and embrace the new.

    'Java developers in SA are too comfortable...' that was a wake up call

    April 8, 2014

    • Mark C.

      Just yourselves I think. Might be good to bring a laptop as well but I don't think there are any planned hands-on sessions? I will be giving a talk on creating games with libgdx :)
