      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.

  • Andre R.

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    Like Richard said: it's time to move on from the outdated stuff in Java, and embrace the new.

    • 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 :)

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
