It is great.
how do you choose the presenters? can it be by remote? like from NY? if so I know someone. I guess, he was one of king of Java from apple employees but now dedicating himself to answer/teach for anyone through youtube. He is my most favourite ever. let me know.

Lets see. Food ran out way early. Presenter was late. I thought I had setup Netbeans correctly but mine was missing the "Servers" button so I couldn't even get started. Then we spent lots of time mucking with Maven and XML, neither of which have anything directly to do with JAX-RS 2.0. For the record, I know almost nothing about Maven and was lost there too... First time I've walked out early on an SFJava meetup.

Thanks for coming out Arun. This new hands-on format could work at lot better with a bit more preparation. I found that I was struggling to keep up because of stumbling blocks along the way. Whether it had to do with using Netbeans for the first time, or trying to figure out the maven dependencies for the Moxy stuff that didn't fully work. For the next meetup of this type, please provide an outline of the session on a web page somewhere that has these key data points, reference URLs, and code samples so I don't have to type them all in. If I can easily keep up, I can get more out of the presentation.
