November JBUG is devoted to RHQ - we have lined up Heiko Rupp - Principal Software Engineer at Red Hat and RHQ specialist to present the main talk. Heiko will give an overview of RHQ and JBoss ON, talk about the new stuff in RHQ 4.2 and JBoss ON 3.0 and also showcase the start of REST api.

As usual, we are also opening up the floor to anyone using JBoss who has a tale to share. We are looking for a number of lightning talks 5 - 10 minutes in length where you can share your experiences, problems or wonderful solutions with the rest of the community. This is a huge opportunity to develop new or hone existing speaking skills.

Lightning Talks

We are looking for members who want to get involved and do 5-10 minutes lightning talks on JBoss. It's a great opportunity to briefly present your thoughts on interesting topics about JBoss with no pressure of preparing the long presentation, powerpoint slides etc. Tell us your story, share your ideas and give the rest of the JBUG members some inspiration, or at least the topic for further discussion during the networking break with pizza and beer.

If you are interested, please send the title of your talk to [masked] . Any questions, don't hesitate to contact us!
