Fifth Coimbra JUG Meeting – Spring MVC
Last Wednesday, 16 July 2014, the fifth meeting of Coimbra JUG was held on the Department of Informatics Engineering of the University of Coimbra, in Portugal. The attendance was very good, we had around 30 people to listen João Antunes talk about the Web Framework – Spring MVC. A very special thanks to João for taking the challenge and steer the session.
I did a quick introduction about Coimbra JUG for the newcomers and João dived right into the session about Spring MVC. Spring MVC is not exactly a new technology, but only one or two attendees were using it. The rest of the attendees seemed very curious and interested to learn about it.
Looking into Rebellabs – Java Tools and Technologies Landscape for 2014, Spring MVC appears at 1st place for the Web Frameworks in use with a 40% share. A huge percentage, which means that is very likely for you to como across with it in the future.
As always, we had surprises for the attendees: beer and chocolates, if you participated in the discussion. IntelliJ sponsored our event, by offering a free license to raffle among the attendees. Congratulations to João Baltazar for winning the license. Develop with pleasure! We also offered the book The Definitive Guide to HTML5 WebSocket courtesy of Kaazing, congratulations to Jessica Vicente. Finally, we gave away two Atlassian Stash t-shirs: “Just Do GIT” to Mário Homem and João Almeida.
