What we're about

The MelbJVM group discusses the Java Virtual Machine (JVM). Topics covered are frameworks and languages on the platform.

Many of our members are software developers using the Java language and looking to find out what's new, and what they can bring to their own projects, bringing up to date techniques and software technologies to the perennial development platform.

Some of our past topics to illustrate this:-

Emerging JVM languages (Redline Smalltalk (http://www.meetup.com/Melbourne-Java-JVM-Users-Group/events/97752052/), Whiley (http://www.meetup.com/Melbourne-Java-JVM-Users-Group/events/109159402/), Kotlin (http://www.meetup.com/Melbourne-Java-JVM-Users-Group/events/143189722/)) and more prevalent JVM languages (Groovy, Clojure (http://www.meetup.com/Melbourne-Java-JVM-Users-Group/events/116283292/), Scala)

Hardware interop with LeapMotion (http://www.meetup.com/Melbourne-Java-JVM-Users-Group/events/133318892/) and RasberryPi (http://www.meetup.com/Melbourne-Java-JVM-Users-Group/events/140852482/)

Lambda workshop (http://www.meetup.com/Melbourne-Java-JVM-Users-Group/events/140852482/) (Java 8)

Deploying webapps to the cloud and QoS (Cloudbees (http://www.meetup.com/Melbourne-Java-JVM-Users-Group/events/61618692/), JInspired.com (http://www.meetup.com/Melbourne-Java-JVM-Users-Group/events/70796702/))

Buildtools (Gradle (http://www.meetup.com/Melbourne-Java-JVM-Users-Group/events/133318892/))

Android Workshop (http://www.meetup.com/Melbourne-Java-JVM-Users-Group/events/109159482/)

Enterprise/Web frameworks (Spring (http://www.meetup.com/Melbourne-Java-JVM-Users-Group/events/133510742/), Vert.x (http://www.meetup.com/Melbourne-Java-JVM-Users-Group/events/70482282/), JavaEE (http://www.meetup.com/Melbourne-Java-JVM-Users-Group/events/97752052/), Grails (http://www.meetup.com/Melbourne-Java-JVM-Users-Group/events/133318892/), Stripes (http://www.meetup.com/Melbourne-Java-JVM-Users-Group/events/55492392/), Play 2 with Akka (http://www.meetup.com/Melbourne-Java-JVM-Users-Group/events/72177322/))

Testing frameworks (Geb (http://www.meetup.com/Melbourne-Java-JVM-Users-Group/events/55492392/), JBehave (http://www.meetup.com/Melbourne-Java-JVM-Users-Group/events/66903902/)) and Katas (http://www.meetup.com/Melbourne-Java-JVM-Users-Group/events/103218512/)

Our members range from those new to programming, students and testers looking to move into development, all the way to those who have been using Java since it was called Oak (did you even know Java used to be called Oak?).

Membership is free. It costs nothing to attend most nights thanks to the generosity of our sponsors (http://www.meetup.com/Melbourne-Java-JVM-Users-Group/sponsors/). We meet once a month in the CBD.

Whether you are developing on the JVM or just curious to see what its like, and regardless if you are based in Melbourne or just stopping through please register, we'd be happy to have you. Look forward to seeing you at a future meetup!

Kotlin Scoping functions and Java 12 Unboxing

We're excited to have 2 lightening talks coming up: --> Kotlin Scoping functions by Ani Fichadia (Senior Android Developer ) --> Java 12 demystified by Kon Soulianidis (Full Stack Developer and MelbJVM chief adviser): Kon does a lightning talk about the latest JDK update, as well as a refresher of compatibility with popular libraries and languages for migrating past 8. There are a few new JDKs on the scene too so we'll unbox those too. The MelbJVM user group meets the first Wednesday of every month usually meeting at the Oracle+Aconex office in the CBD. Topics cover Java and related JVM languages, frameworks and other trends on the platform. *Sponsors* A big thanks to Oracle+Aconex for providing their venue as our regular home, letting us use their beer taps and fridge, and providing food for these events. Also our other regular sponsors, including our newest sponsor ***Attribute Group***, who support the community and facilitate the growth of the meetup.
