Hi Folks,

We had an amazing meetup yesterday evening with over 70 members taking part. Thank you very much for an absolutely superb turn out. I hope you all enjoyed the session and learnt something new. My sincere thanks also goes out to our three expert panelists - Srinath, Prabath and Amila.

If you have any feedback on the meetup or JAVA Colombo in general, please feel free to drop a mail to this list or post a comment on our website. As mentioned during the meetup we'll be launching our blog very soon, and I'll publish yesterday's slide deck on the blog. Most of you had turned in the survey form yesterday with some great insights. For others I'll send the survey sheet to the mailing list soon, so you can fill it out and send over. If any of you're willing to give us a hand with organizing meetups, please do drop me a mail with a short bio (hiranya911gmail.com). We also welcome requests to host meetups at your organization, college or University. For the moment please write to me regarding such requests too. Once we have a full organization committee in place we can come up with a better process to handle such requests.

Thank you once again for your participation. We hope to have our 2nd meetup really soon. Stay tuned!

Thanks,
Hiranya

Hi Folks,

We are just 2 days away from our very first JAVA Colombo meetup. I hope you are all looking forward to the event. If you are planning to attend the meetup, this mail contains some important details for you. Please take a couple of minutes to go through the points mentioned below.
  • Date: 15th March 2012
  • Time: 6.00 PM (Registration opens at 5.45 PM)
  • Venue: WSO2 office at No. 58, Dharmapala Mawatha, Colombo 7 (Please note the address. This is NOT the WSO2 office at Flower Road. This is one of the new WSO2 offices. It's located at the 5th floor of ICICI bank building near the Liberty Plaza. Please make your way to the ICICI bank building and get the elevator from the ground floor. The building is located to your right when going towards the Town Hall from Liberty junction.)
  • Parking: A limited number of parking slots will be available at the basement of the building. Hopefully that will be just enough to accommodate everyone who is planning to drive to the meetup.
  • Dress code: It's going to be a very casual event. So whatever you wear for work/college/university should be just fine :)
