What every Java engineer should know about microservices: Reactive Microservices Architecture.  Brought to you in partnership with Lightbend.

With the numerous larger conferences worldwide that we cover in the Java EE/GlassFish team, it is often difficult to make time to visit JUGs. This leaves a gap as many folks often don't make it to regional/international conferences. It's also a shame since I used to visit quite a few JUGs back in my independent consultant days. With the Java EE 7 release I'm trying to reach out to at least my local JUGs in the greater North East/Mid Atlantic area. In this vein, I made a smallish JUG tour covering the Pittsburgh, Columbus and Cleveland JUGs. Cleveland JUG leader Scott Seighman helped arrange the tour. Scott is one of the surprisingly few Oracle employees involved with their local JUGs. Scott's efforts are indeed admirable and encouraging.

I did my Java EE 7 talk (our flagship talk this year) in all three JUGs (Pittsburgh on August 13th, Columbus on August 14th and Cleveland on August 15th) - slides posted below.

All three talks went very well and I had some excellent interactions afterwards. This is despite the fact that JUGs during Summer are not usually very active. I gave away a few books, GlassFish T-shirts, laptop stickers and other goodies. Overall it was a great experience and definitely worth doing. Hopefully I'll have time to cover a few more JUGs this year and next year.
