Kotlin: Al Fresco
Much excitement surrounds Java's younger sibling language in the JVM, Kotlin. Whether one is looking for type inference, the Elvis operator, or extension methods, this language might provide just the right tool for the job. Come learn about Kotlin and it's features, how it stacks up against Java, and pick up some tips and tricks for getting started.

Food Sponsor: Chariot Solutions At Chariot Solutions (, we see enterprise software development as a great challenge, and believe that our team is the key to consistent success. We start with the strongest architects and developers, because developing high quality, high performing software is difficult. There’s the architecture, the code, the data, the hardware, and often a patchwork of legacy systems and complexities that exist in any large organization.

What we're about

Welcome to the newest virtual home of the Philadelphia Area Java Users’ Group, twice rated by Sun as one of the world’s top Java User Groups! The Philly JUG’s main objective is to provide great learning events for our membership, and if you look at our history we’ve done just that. Over the past fifteen+ years the Philly JUG has done quite a bit of growing up. Very few of you might remember our first meeting, where about 35 members sat on the floor in the office of a long departed dot com. If you have been to a meeting recently you know how far we have come.
