Java EE@Chicago JUG

On July 16th, I spoke at the Chicago JUG. Heather VanCura of the JCP helped arrange the talk. I did my Java EE 7 talk (our flagship talk this year) - slides posted below. Now that Java EE 7 is out, I'm trying to do a few more visits to reasonably local JUGs to my home office in Philly (I am speaking in Pittsburgh, Columbus and Cleveland in August).

The talk went very well -- over 75 people attended by my count and the RSVP was even higher than that. I was very happy to share the stage with Simon Maple of ZeroTurnaround (speaking on class loaders/JRebel of course). I gave away a few GlassFish T-shirts, laptop stickers and other goodies. I'm going to try to hit Chicago again when I'm flying cross country.
