What we're about

Welcome! This is a group for anyone interested in Java development. Meetings are held every second Wednesday of the month and include opportunities for networking as well as presentations on some topic of interest to Java developers. We meet for dinner/drinks afterward.

Ray Tayek and Philip Yurchuk (https://www.linkedin.com/in/philipyurchuk) organize the meetings.

We have online discussions in two places:

The OCJUG mailing list:

The OCJUG LinkedIn Group:

Coding with AI


After over 3 years waiting out the apocalypse in our underground bunker, the OCJUG returns!

This month, Vivek Haldar will be talking about the hottest topic around: how to harness Skynet to build your next application. OK, less Skynet, more GitHub Copilot, ChatGPT, and similar, but still very cool. Let's all get together in person (!) and see how Lazy we can get as programmers.

Much thanks to Google for sponsoring us.


6:30 Networking
7:00 Announcements, talk, Q&A
8:30 Leave for dinner, drinks, and more discussion

We'll have dinner just down the street at Tokyo Table in the Diamond Jamboree shopping center: https://goo.gl/maps/GfbkReHyQULYJEZr8

We've all seen how ChatGPT and GitHub Copilot can generate code and help programmers. In this talk, we will take a look back at some of the history of programming language tooling and then forward at some cutting-edge research in large language models to prognosticate about what the act of programming might look like in the coming years.

Vivek Haldar has been programming for nearly two decades at all levels of the stack (the Linux kernel, large-scale backends for search and indexing, cluster management systems, virtual machines, Android apps, CRMs). He has a PhD in Computer Science from UC Irvine, and is currently a Staff Software Engineer at Google.
