“The Future of Java/What’s Brewing in Java” -Dr. Venkat Subramaniam


Java has come a long way, and yet there is so much that’s happening in this space. In this presentation we will take a look at the exciting additions and changes coming up in the next version of Java: Status of the Java language and the libraries, features that are around the corner, JVM capability enhancements, and benefits of these imminent changes.

First Presentation:

Transforming to Groovy


Groovy is a elegant, dynamic, agile, OO language. I like to program in Groovy because it is fun and the code is concise and highly expressive. Writing code in a language is hardly about using its syntax, however. It is about using the right idioms.  This talk will cover some nice Groovy idioms.
