MATLAB is unique among top 20 programming languages in many ways. Foremost, it is primarily targeted at engineers and scientists but scales to professional software development workflows. MATLAB is both a language and a complete platform, providing an integrated development environment, interactive apps that automatically generate programs, and massive collections of engineering- and science-focused functions. Additionally, it is nearly 40 years old, 100% JIT compiled, automatically convertible to embeddable C, privately developed but with a healthy open source developer community, released twice yearly with new versions of 90+ products validated to work together, ... About the speaker: Michelle Hirsch is the head of MATLAB Product Management at MathWorks. Michelle and her team partner with the development leads to drive the strategy and direction for MATLAB.

    What we're about

    Public Group

    The purpose of this JUG is to provide a forum to share ideas, discuss and to promote Java and JVM. Anybody with an interest in Java & JVM is encouraged to join. We meet once a month. The meetings will include tech talks on various topics related to Java. In addition to the meetings, we plan to have code jams, workshops and bof sessions on a regular basis. Come, connect and collaborate at the BOJUG home page ( & the mailing list ( and be a part of something awesome.

    We are a group of Java JVM developers in Bangalore, engineers (to say the least) we hope to create a thriving Java community in Bangalore. Java being open sourced is easily one of the greatest piece of news in recent memory for us developers. Now, Java will be adopted even more widely than it was. Part of being open source means to build communities. Communities of developers, users, experts and beginners, which are needed for the greater adoption of Java. These communities are the life-line of any open source product, and as users, it is our responsibility to strengthen Java's life-line.
