CLOJUG AUG 2014 - Java SE 8 - Java IoT - Adopt a JSR

Hello all! This is a small update about what we did at the Cali (CLO) Java User Group - CLOJUG during August 2014.

This month we had an extra meeting with students at Universidad Javeriana where we talked about the new features of Java SE 8: Date and Time API, Lambda expressions and Streams API. Most of the students had zero or little experience with Java but they were really interested about these new features. The presentation about Java SE 8 can be downloaded from here (in spanish).

We run our regular meeting on 23-AUG-2014 at Universidad Icesi. This meeting was about Java and IoT. One of our members, +Sandro Hdo. Preciado Castro gave us a really great talk about this topic. We all enjoyed watching him with his electronic "toys" and learning from his experience with Java, Raspberry Pi and other devices.

We also talked about Adopt a JSR, we are about to enter the program and, as a start, we'd like to Adopt JSRs from Java SE 9 such as Money and Currency API (JSR 354) and Units of Measurement API (JSR 363). We'll let you know when we have entered the program and we've started to work on these two APIs.

Here are some pictures of this event:

Stay tuned for our events and if you live in Cali-Colombia, come to our meetings and become a member of our great community! http://www.clojug.org/
