Time has a habit of passing faster than I expect. Tonight is once again Java Developers Group night. Our speaker tonight is Darren Gibson and he will be presenting on SCALA Multi-Threading. Please come join us for an evening of food, fun, and learning.
Our meetings start at 6PM and are located at Tulsa Community College Southeast campus. This is located at the intersection of Hwy 169 and 81st Street South.
6:00 - 6:30 arrival and consumption of dinner and dessert courtesy of our generous sponsors at Tek Systems.
6:30 - 6:45 discussion of latest news and group planning
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.
