This month we have some great lightning talks (less than 30 minutes each) by SeaJUG members:

• Eric Jain will be talking about joda and java.time. He will address things such as why so many different classes? When is a simple UTC timestamp not enough? Can I infer a timezone from coordinates, etc.

• Douglas Pearson will do a short talk on what he calls "Super Strong Typing" which is an approach to designing classes and types in Java to get away from the "passing 6 Strings into a method" problem.

• Stuart MacLean will talk about a great way to include C code (needed for JNI) into a Maven artifact such that it appears that the artifact is pure Java and thus runs on all platforms.
