Java User Group edition #9 at 1&1 Internet Development

JUG edition 9

JUG edition #9 @ 1&1 Internet

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.

3 Days To Change Your Mindset

The tekom annual conference is the largest global event for technical communication. Organized in the pure German way (that means: perfectly), the conference is a best opportunity for specialists all over the world to get in touch with each other, learn from each other and define together new trends for the industry.

Last month 1&1 offered me the chance to attend this event. Since this was my first participation, I didn’t know what to expect. I was told the conference would be big, but I wasn’t able to imagine the dimensions of it, and the impact it would have.

LinuxCon Europe – Day 2 (Part 2 of 4)

It Takes a Community to Raise a Distribution

Tim Burke began with a quotation from Dirk’s presentation, earlier that day, saying “everything went fine until the distro’s showed up”, and explained the role of a Linux distributor and the role of the community in shaping the development of its releases (both Fedora and Red Hat Enterprise Linux). By analogy with the old saying “it takes a village to raise a child” meaning that it’s not only the child’s parents who make the effort, but also everyone else around helps somehow, creating a Linux distribution is also based on the efforts of the whole community,

LinuxCon Europe – Day 2 (Part 1 of 4)

The second day at LinuxCon 2011 started with a heavy Continental Breakfast. Heavy as in “not for the faint of heart”, or “if you thought your cholesterol was fine, think again” or as to emphasize/enforce that “breakfast is the most important meal of the day”. Everyone sure needed their strenghts back after the “marathon” from Day 1, so packed with eggs, sausages and a slight indigestion, Day 2 at LinuxCon 2011 began.

20 Years of Linux – A Somewhat Different Retrospective

We all see Linux in its current state of development probably without realizing that it took 20 years to mature and get to this level. One person hasn’t forgotten this, as he was one of the early adopters of Linux. His name is Dirk Hohndel, and he is currently working as Chief Linux

Every Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, the fridge in the kitchen at the 9th floor turns into a Magic Fridge packed with her delicious cupcakes which customers enjoy … well, they enjoy a lot.
