Hello JavaMN!

Hope everyone is doing well, and enjoying the weather as we head into Spring time. We are excited to announce and schedule our spring time meetup. As always, we are excited to provide appetizers and beverages of the adult-kind but we are even more excited to bring you two awesome speakers presenting on some cutting-edge java topics.


New Features in Java Versions 9-12 all Developers Should Know:
Covering exciting new language features and enhancements to Lambda Expressions, Optional, Interfaces, Switch Statements and more.
Presented by Lionel Rivas

Machine Learning 101 (with java!):
What do self-driving cars, email spam filters, and online recommendation offers all have in common? They all involve machine learning! It's at the forefront of analyzing and making decisions based on large amounts of data, and in this presentation, we'll introduce the basics of machine learning, talk about common applications, and walkthrough some examples and algorithms. Demos and Java code examples will use the Weka tools and libraries.
Presented by Mark Kalal
