I apologize for the belated reminder. Tonight is the Tulsa Java Developers Group meeting at TCC South East Campus. The campus is located at the intersection of 81st and Hwy 169. The meeting starts at 6PM I'm told our directions to the room could be better so look at the bottom of this message for a set of instructions on how to find the room.
Tonight's presentation will be by
Frequently in my career I've encountered situations where I've deployed something that works fine locally only to find some obscure bug when it runs on the server. Most developers I know frequently resort to the poor man's debugger - println to try and pin down what is going on. Unfortunately this is rarely efficient use of the developers time and in some cases can actually mask the original problem. Modern IDE's have the capability of attaching remotely to a properly prepared jvm to allow you to actually step through the code from the comfort of your local desktop. Tonight I will demonstrate debugging a web application from within Netbeans. Intellij and Eclipse can also perform this task if they are your IDE of choice.

6:45 - 8:00 PM Topic presentation
8:00 PM - Door prize give-away
Enter through the admin and registration building. This is located directly in front of the main entrance. When driving in you will see a very small traffic circle. The admin building is straight ahead on the left side of the circle. Enter on the ground floor and walk straight until the corridor bends right. Take the right and then a left in front of the glass doors. You will see stairs ahead of you - climb them. At the top of the stairs you will be at the intersection of 2 corridors. You want to walk straight ahead (South?) - the pond should be on your right side and you will pass a small security office on the left and then the elevators. Take the first hallway on your left after the elevators. Room 4228 is the last classroom on the right hand side of that hall.
Well thanks to my company I'm able to attend JavaOne this year. The crowd is quite large and some of the topics are quite interesting. There is something for everyone (over 500 sessions) and a lot of useful information. I've already attended one Java User Group Leader session which presented ideas for growing your group. If you are interested the keynotes videos will be here soon:
I want to thank everyone who attended the Java track at TechFest this past Friday. I was pleasantly surprised at the turnout and as promised I'm working on getting the materials from my sessions up online. I expect to start posting them tonight as I clean them up a little bit. They will show up as attachments to this message probably by the end of the night and I'll update this post with additional information.
-- Update #1: I've uploaded the Raspberry PI servo project. In order to build it I recommend using Netbeans or another IDE that supports maven. It is assumed you are either using a maven enabled IDE or that you have installed maven directly and know how to use it. The code is not the prettiest in the world but it demonstrates the concept of how to Move Servo's. I'll try to update this post more tomorrow and maybe cleanup and make the code a little more elegant.
