This month our feature talk will be on one of the most up and coming build tools on the JVM platform, Gradle (http://www.gradle.org/). We are incredibly lucky to have Luke Daley (https://twitter.com/ldaley), Principal Engineer for Gradleware (http://www.gradleware.com/), providing an overview and answering your questions (the more questions, the better!)
We'll also have lightning talks from Seabook Chen (http://www.meetup.com/Melbourne-Java-JVM-Users-Group/members/106325882/) on his Grails chatroom (https://github.com/codinghardseabook/grails-chatroom) with OAuth plugins that accomplish a lot with very little code, and myself (http://twitter.com/neversleepz) demoing the new Leap Motion (https://www.leapmotion.com/) controller with the use of the Java APIs (https://developer.leapmotion.com/documentation/Languages/Java/Guides/Leap_Overview.html).
We'll also have the news roundup and a brief look at the open spaces cards (https://trello.com/b/4iOzng2O/august-2013-meetup-suggestions) gathered from last meet-up. [Feel free to add more between now and the next meetup]
Thanks go to Peoplebank and Shine Technologies for venue and food/beverage sponsorship respectively.
Info on getting there:
Peoplebank offices are on the south-west corner of Flinders Lane and Queen St. Doors lock at 6pm but someone from Peoplebank will be downstairs to let people in. If when you get there, no one is present, call[masked] and we'll send someone down. We also will be having a raffle, so when you get to Level 13, there will be someone to greet you, get a name-tag, and also put you in the raffle draw. For those driving in, there is flat rate (~$10) after hours parking on Market St, between flinders lane and flinders st.
