SeaJUG is an all volunteer effort - which means items such as the website and mailing list are updated as schedules afford. We meet on the 3rd Tuesday of every month. We need suggestions/volunteers for topics! If you'd like to donate your time/skills to the cause, contact Nimret Sandhu.
This month we have some great lightning talks (less than 30 minutes each) by SeaJUG members:
- Eric Jain will be talking about joda and java.time. He will address things such as why so many different classes? When is a simple UTC timestamp not enough? Can I infer a timezone from coordinates, etc.
- Douglas Pearson will do a short talk on what he calls "Super Strong Typing" which is an approach to designing classes and types in Java to get away from the "passing 6 Strings into a method" problem.
- Peter Dillinger will talk about Instrumentation in the era of Stack Map Frames. A rant on how this new bytecode requirement is a major complication for JVM bytecode instrumentation, informed by a blog post by Prashant Deva and motivated by some recent product work of mine.
