Howdy Java Enthusiasts!
We have a great presentation coming up. Hope you can make it. Be sure to RSVP!
Docker and Gradle
Docker combined with some modest JVM tooling can solve a lot of development problems in some very interesting ways. This talk dives into a few of those situations, and shows an example of how we have utilized Docker with Gradle in our product development. It also explores some of the other options we have to integrate Docker with JUnit/Spock tests and some of the benefits/pitfalls of this approach.
Speaker Joe McCall is a professional software engineer for Intrepid Networks in the Sanford area that has been working with Java/JVM professionally since 2011, and Groovy/Grails since 2012, both on Web and Mobile.
Thanks to Vaco for pizza!

This month we welcome Edson Yanaga as our speaker. Edson will give a talk on Revisiting Effective Java.
Revisiting Effective Java in 2018
Joshua Bloch just gifted us with the 3rd edition of "Effective Java", but almost 10 years have been past since the last edition. Now we have a whole generation of Java developers that could benefit from this knowledge - but lost the past wave. It's about time to revisit all of this wonderful content, and upgrade your skills to the latest versions of the Java platform. Join us on this deep dive session to check what is the updated Effective Java, and even add some more tips not included in the book!
Edson Yanaga, Red Hat's Director of Developer Experience, is a Java Champion and a Microsoft MVP. He is also a published author and a frequent speaker at international conferences, discussing Java, Microservices, Cloud Computing, DevOps, and Software Craftsmanship.
We'll have a Chromebook to raffle and lots of swag. Be sure to RSVP.
Thanks to Red Hat for sponsoring the pizza & beer :-)

Are you wondering what the presentation is about?
From Ed’s blog: http://ridingthecrest.com/blog/2018/07/10/orlando-jug-rockstar.html
How in the world can I keep up with all this information coming at me every day?
What can I do to ensure that I keep bringing value to my employer or client and to help ensure continued career success?
What will the practice of software development look like in ten years time?
How do I know where to invest time and effort in stewarding my skillset?
In 2008, Ed Burns interviewed top programmers from a variety of software disciplines for the book “Secrets of the Rock Star Programmers”. Now in 2018, Ed revisits the cross section of secrets (aka character attributes) exhibited by these rockstars for the current world of programming.
Join this session to learn more about these characteristics that can help you become a better programmer.
Purpose of the Talk
Ed interviews some of the best programmers of our time and shares their strategies for success.
Any developer wanting to improve their career skills.
A set of concrete, actionable steps you can take right now to become a better developer.
