The folks that are involved in the definition of future versions and features of the Java platform via the Java Community Process (JCP) are throwing a party to celebrate their 10-year anniversary, and our JUG members are invited. This is what Corina Ulescu from Sun says about this event:
"It's a free party that the JCP is organizing to mark ten years of activity focused on developing standards for the Java platform.
Many JUG members are affiliated with the JCP and its Java standards efforts directly or indirectly and we think their participation would further encourage the collaboration between JUGs and the JCP, it would certainly be an opportunity to network with Spec Leads, JCP Executive Committee members, other Java experts and local JUGs members."
When: Tuesday, January 13, 2009 from 6:30 pm to 9:30 pm
Where: The Computer History Museum
When you advance RSVP (highly recommended, they could reach venue limit and close registration) as a local JUG member, please tell them you heard about this party from the SF Bay Groovy and Grails Meetup Group
