The Atlanta Java Users Group (AJUG) is organized by Java Developers for Java Developers in order to:
Provide a forum for exchanging information and for brainstorming with other developers on how to successfully implement new Java solutions.
Deliver monthly technical presentations on the latest Java/JVM technologies.
Support the needs of both newbies and experts through related Study Groups targeted at Java Certification and Java-OO architectural issues.
Promote the advantages of Java as a development and deployment environment to the business and educational communities.
While our focus is around Java and the JVM, we also cover a wide variety of other related topics such as Agile development methodologies, mobile and client-side software development frameworks and tools.
More and more projects are taking advantage of reactive programming. A key discovery is that the entire stack must be reactive. Reactive Relational Database Connectivity (R2DBC) is the new standard that brings full reactive support to SQL-based database systems. Discover why R2DBC is becoming the Java community's favorite mechanism for merging the most popular database engines with functional, reactive applications.
