Java User Group edition #9 at 1&1 Internet Development
This is a guest post written by Eugen Stan, BJUG member.
BJUG #10 is closing in fast. In less than two weeks we meet again, and get another chance to find out new stuff about new and exciting technologies, but more important about each other. That is the reason why we, Andrei and Mihai, started JUG Bucharest almost one year ago and that is the reason why I constantly remind people to share ideas and get to know each other better.
I’m a strong believer that people drive things forward, and that technologies, frameworks and programming languages are just tools.
JUG 10 looks popular, but it still has some catching up to do before it reaches the same popularity as JUG #9, which managed to fill the 100 places conference room from the 10th floor at 1&1 Internet Development.
The meeting went smoothly and I learned new stuff about Android from Felix Oghină (@foghina). The introduction to Grails by Corneliu Creangă started some debates and laughs around web frameworks and programming languages. If you’ve missed this edition you can view the presentations on our page, along with the videos. Kudos to 1&1 for sponsoring the conference room, the filming and also the snaks and drinks during the break.
Our hope with BJUG is to build a powerfull tech community in Bucharest. We know there is a big talent pool here, but this is not enough. To build great things, people need to interact more and learn from each other. We need to trust each other more.
JUG Bucharest is one example of what people can do when they work together. We started BJUG, but we woldn’t have gone this far without the help and support of a lot of people who mediated our cause to their managers, without the help of our sponsors and everybody who spread the word about BJUG. Thank you all! Don’t stop doing what you do, because you are great.
Spread the word about BJUG, talk about what you do, and be curious about the person next to you. You’ll find out you can learn a lot. Don’t forget to join BJUG #10
