SacJUG Members Unite
The Sacramento Java User Group meets every month to discuss and discover new technologies that involve Java and other electronic information systems. The group has been meeting every month since the Java was released to the public back in 1996. We are a volunteer group and the meetings are free to the public. The hard work of its members and support of its sponsors are the back bone of the group's success and longevity. We recognize and appreciate those who have shared with the group informative presentations and insightful discussion. It is those members and guests who help make our meetings more enjoyable, exciting and informative. Java is the language we speak and Java is the language we love!

For those who are new or want to know details about the new meeting location, SacJUG meetings are held at 6:00 p.m., on the 2nd Tuesday of the month at the ExitCertified office building.

ExitCertified is located at:

8950 Cal Center Drive
Suite 110, Bldg. 1
Sacramento, CA 95826

John Lockwood
Scala
John Lockwood avoided the poverty of being a liberal arts Ph.D. dropout in the early 1990s by teaching himself how to program. Since then has played and worked professionally with a lot of fun languages. He's a Principal at CodeSolid Sofware Development, currently doing his second tour of duty as a Java programmer at VSP Global (this time at Eyefinity). In his spare time he's wrapping his mind around Scala, one of the coolest new languages targeting the JVM, and functional programming. December's presentation will be a sort of traveler's tale of what he found in the weird hinterland of Scala. We'll discuss all of this from the point of view of a Java programmer trying to understand what features make Scala cool and useful on the one hand, and what shortcomings make it difficult and obtuse on the other. We'll do a high level overview of functional programming and how Scala supports it, and we'll dig into some of the basics of the language as well as the tools such as the REPL and SBT (the "Simple" Build Tool).
The sandwiches, drinks and raffle gift cards will be sponsored by TEKsystems, Experis, and The Scheuble Group.
