Java developers, architects, programmers, and enthusiasts can drink up more of their favorite brew thanks to Oracle’s Java bus, which hits the road this summer on a high-tech cross-country Java Road Trip slated to hit 20 cities by September. The Java Road Trip: Code to Coast tour demonstrates Oracle's commitment to the Java programming language. Among the tour participants are distinguished Java technologists at Oracle who will demonstrate rich new Java technologies, support fellow developers at Java user group (JUG) meetings, meet with enterprise developers and consumers, and share the spirit of innovation that is the essence of Java.

Please RSVP here on meetup. There won't be a separate registration page after all. You don't want to miss this one.

    Roberto is going to send me his slides or a link to where they can be accessed on line. I will post link here when I have that.

    I would agree there were quite a few issues with this meeting. More food was ordered and delivered and no one that stayed for the meeting went hungry. The point of the 6-7pm hour is always primarily for networking. If you are not interested in networking with other members, than I could see it being a waste of time for some folks. In that case, I recommend getting your own dinner separately and just showing up at 7pm for meeting proper. Roberto's talk was anything but PR phluff.

    Good information, but speaker "needs work" on presentation style. Slides were good foundation for talk. Speaker was clearly well-versed in the topics. Food (light snacks) setup (quantity) was inadequate until pizza was ordered.

    It was very informative about the new stuff coming out from Java. They had 2 rounds of food for everybody and even some left over. The speaker was real enthusiastic about his work and could tell he is passionate about Java. (A, T Didn?t your mother tell you if you don?t have anything nice to say you should keep quiet. Nothing positive comes out of this except hurting the group)

    I have heard talks about JEE 6 before but it takes several presentations before all the new and improved features really sinks in. I definitely left this meeting with a better understanding of JEE 6 and a renewed desire to get my development onto that platform. Other than the talk, the meeting was well done, good food and good networking.

    java Road Trip was a disorganized waste of time. Starting with incorrect address, then food running out. The coach was just a piece of PR phluff. Didn't stay for the meeting that was promised for 7:30pm. If this is Oracle's idea of a professional meeting, god help java.

    The meeting started at 6:00, but the talk wasn't scheduled to start until 7:30. Not much to do in the meantime.
