Welcome to the monthly meeting for Java Developers in the Tulsa area. Our meeting this month is on February 10th at 6PM. For February Darren has graciously agreed to do part 2 of the talk about something he's quite knowledgeable about - Docker. For those that aren't aware Docker is a popular lightweight container infrastructure. Think a extremely lightweight virtual machine. It makes packaging your application with just the necessary dependencies a breeze. Darren has presented on this before but with all the new members he was called upon for an Encore.
Thank you to everyone who attended in January and I look forward to seeing as many of you as can make it in January.
Our meetings are on the second Wednesday of the month and start at 6PM and are located at Tulsa Community College Southeast campus In room 4228. This is located at the intersection of Hwy 169 and 81st Street South.

Walking Directions to room:
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.
