Java News, Business Rules, and The Java Memory Model [updated agenda]

Unfortunately, tonight's scheduled main presenter, Marius Bogoevici, has to cancel his appearance tonight due to illness. He will join us in a future month to present his introduction to the Play! 2 framework. Get well soon, Marius!


We still have a fun meeting lined up though:


- Dan Fraser will get us up to speed on the past month in Java News (great opportunity for a group discussion about the latest changes in Java 8)

- We will run the RoboCode battle that didn't happen last month due to technical difficulties

- Eric Schabell of JBoss will present a short talk about rules-based programming with JBoss BRMS and BPM

- I will present a short talk about "What every Java developer should know about the Java Memory Model"

- As always, we'll migrate to the front room and continue to enjoy the food, drink, and conversation!


Once again, apologies for the last-minute change.

    The new agenda seems interesting! Sadly I cannot make it now. Will a video / deck be shared somewhere?

    Hi everyone,

    We've just had a speaker cancellation due to illness. I've updated the agenda accordingly.

    Thanks, Peter, for the idea of discussing the new stuff that's now ready to use in Java 8! This will make a great topic for group discussion. I'm looking forward to it!

    Is there an agenda for this meeting? If there isn't one, it might be useful to discuss the changes in Java 8, considering it was just released a week ago. I'm hyped about lambdas and the new Date API inspired by Joda Time.
