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!

Online Meetup: What I Wish I Knew About Maven Years Ago by Andres Almiray

*NOTE*: This is an online meetup over google meet as we want our community members to keep learning during this unusual period. The silver lining of the situation we are into nowadays is that we get a chance to participate in talks given by known Java Advocates all over the world. For this month's online meetup, Andres Almiray will impart his expertise to us all the way from Switzerland. Talk Description: Apache Maven is seen by many developers as the defacto build tool in the Java space. Since its early days back in April 2002, Maven has helped developers build projects and assemble artifacts. On the surface not much appears to have changed in the design, structure, and build file syntax, but in reality there are quite a good number of features that have been added through the years that make Maven a powerhouse. Come to this talk if you want to learn more about these hidden nuggets and make the most of your Maven builds. About: *Andres Almiray* Andres is a Java/Groovy developer and a Java Champion with more than 20 years of experience in software design and development. He has been involved in web and desktop application development since the early days of Java. Andres is a true believer in open source and has participated on popular projects like Groovy, Griffon, and DbUnit, as well as starting his own projects (Json-lib, EZMorph, GraphicsBuilder, JideBuilder).
