Sixth Coimbra JUG Meeting – Batch Processing in the Real World
Last Thursday, 30 October 2014, the sixth meeting of Coimbra JUG was held on the Department of Informatics Engineering of the University of Coimbra, in Portugal. The attendance was good, we had around 25 people to listen to my talk about the Java EE Batch. This is the same session I have presented at JavaOne.
No one in the audience was using Java EE Batch, and only a couple were using Spring Batch technologies. By coincidence a few old colleagues of mine, working in a project where I introduced the technology. The attendees seemed very curious and interested to learn about it and the questions were great. A lot of interactions and discussions were generated during the session. A funny thing happened toward the end: there was a power failure and we had to finished the session on the dark! We were lucky, since the session was almost done. Discussions about the topic (and others), bounced to the dinner. We had around ten enthusiasts, for our biggest dinner ever!
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 Décio Sousa for winning the license. Develop with pleasure!
A few additional notes:
I would like to welcome Bruno Baptista to the Coimbra JUG Organization. He is going to help me running the JUG.
Coimbra JUG is almost 1 year old! Let’s see if we can pull something interesting to commemorate!
