Hello Steve,
We just had Antonio Goncalves and Emmanuel Bernard at MontrealJUG - so I believe the Montreal Java community is completely quarkus'ed :-)
That was a great event!
Swag is highly appreciated though, if you can please send some our way, we'll make a raffle and distribute it! (we meet every month)
Thanks
Anthony

Some of you may know that I recently moved from IBM to Red Hat.  I’ve signed up to help Red Hat’s engagement with the Java community across the board and and specifically  take on the role of  Quarkus Community manager
 
I hope to get the Quarkus 2021 year off with a great start and for that I need your help. 
 
I know many people will have used Quarkus but I’m sure there any more that haven’t.  
 
So today I’m announcing that I plan to run a Quarkus (Virtual) World Tour and bring Quarkus to you. As as community leader I’d like to offer you and your community a personalised Quarkus experience.
 
The structure is flexible but in general the idea is to do a 2 hour live event  that provides an introduction, a hands-on session and a Q&A.  We’ll tailor the content to your interests and provide access to some of the development team behind Quarkus.   This will all be live and interactive and , as I said, personalised to your groups interests.   AND, of course there will be swag  and maybe even a tour T-Shirt!

Interested? respond here or just email me directly at stpoole@...

Architecting and delivering Java applications in the cloud era

Otávio Gonçalves de Santana
 

email header.jpg

Nowadays, the best company is the one that delivers value quicker to its customers. They seek to spend less, and in consequence, they end up searching for cloud solutions. On the technical side, we have Java, which is the most mature and popular language of the past 25 years. Nevertheless, the most asked questions of the past years are: how do Java and cloud fit together? Does Java still fit the new technology trends or Is it time to deprecate Java to use newer languages such as NodeJS and GO?

Join this session to understand how the Java language, standards, culture, and ecosystem around it evolved to keep the pace of cloud deployment. Learn how you can maintain your developers' productivity by architecting your Java application aligned with the most recent best practices and recommendations, besides, defining a good integration and delivery scenario for your application lifecycle.

Key takeaways:

    • Why do we have cloud computing?
    • What is business automation?
    • How to create CI/CD in the cloud with a PaaS

Re: #NYJavaSIG Feb 10 Wed - Learn How #TornadoVM Optimizes #Java Apps across CPU/GPU/FPGAs - https://buff.ly/3qVfiXK #nyjavasig #tornadovm #java

Nimret Sandhu
 

Likewise, SeaJUG is hosting a workshop on "Cloud Native Java" online on 2/16 at 5pm PST by Josh Long (@starbuxman)


Details:
Work takes time to flow through an organization and ultimately be deployed to production where it captures value. It’s critical to reduce time-to-production. Software - for many organizations and industries - is a competitive advantage. Organizations break their larger software ambitions into smaller, independently deployable, feature -centric batches of work - microservices. In order to reduce the round-trip between stations of work, organizations collapse or consolidate as much of them as possible and automate the rest; developers and operations beget “devops,” cloud-based services and platforms automate operations work and break down the need for ITIL tickets and change management boards. But velocity, for velocity’s sake, is dangerous. Microservices invite architectural complexity that few are prepared to address. In this talk, we’ll look at how high performance organizations like Ticketmaster, Alibaba, and Netflix make short work of that complexity with Spring Boot and Spring Cloud.

In this workshop we'll look at how to build cloud-native Java systems that are elastic, agile, observable and robust.

SPEAKER:
Josh (@starbuxman) has been the first Spring Developer Advocate since 2010. Josh is a Java Champion, author of 6 books (including O'Reilly's "Cloud Native Java: Designing Resilient Systems with Spring Boot, Spring Cloud, and Cloud Foundry" and "Reactive Spring") and numerous best-selling video training (including "Building Microservices with Spring Boot Livelessons" with Spring Boot co-founder Phil Webb), and an open-source contributor (Spring Boot, Spring Integration, Spring Cloud, Activiti and Vaadin, etc), a podcaster ("A Bootiful Podcast") and a YouTuber.

cheers,

Furthermore, TornadoVM performs task-migration from one device to another at runtime, entirely transparent for the user. In this talk, we will summarize the TornadoVM project. We will explain, via examples, how TornadoVM optimizes, offloads, and executes applications on heterogeneous hardware, including GPUs FPGAs for different backends, such as OpenCL and NVIDIA PTX.

[Action Requested] Accessibility & Technology Expert: Lucy Greco

Sharat Chander
 

Java User Group Leaders,

As many of you are aware, accessibility continues to be an unresolved issue in so many parts of technology. IMO, we don't talk about it enough, especially at the developer level.

So, a few things:

1. If you are looking to book an accessibility expert for your next event, conference or meet-up (virtual, or in-person when it's safe), please consider reaching out to Lucy Greco (cc'd). She leads accessibility advocacy  at the University of California - Berkeley (especially in broader technology topics). Some of you have invited her to speak in the past and I thank you for including her voice, knowledge, and perspective.

2. She is currently bringing attention to how smart home appliances are accessible-challenged. You can see a short YouTube video and Twitter post of her hands-on experience with a recent purchased appliance:
a. Please "LIKE" the video on YouTube: https://youtu.be/iBADy6-gDBY
b. Also, Please "LIKE" her social post on Twitter: https://twitter.com/accessaces/status/1353567840083709952?s=20

Liking BOTH will help her chances with this year's Holman Prize, which is sponsored by Lighthouse whose mission is to promote the equality and self-reliance of people who are blind or visually impaired through rehabilitation training, employment placement, etc.

Should she win, Lucy is looking to use the prize proceeds to help fund a repeating video series to demonstrate further accessibility issues in tech and devices.

For sure, I'd be grateful helping to amplify this through your social and developer channels, as well as connecting with Lucy offline.

Thanks for your consideration.

Best,
-Sharat
