Meanwhile, take a look around CodeTown while you're here. This framework is Java-based with a PHP front end. We've got many groups here to peruse. Our meetings will be listed in the Events section.

Did you know JaxJug meets the same day Gatorjug does? This month, Carol MacDonald is giving a talk. I asked her whether it would work for her to give the same Apache Spark talk at our GatorJug either the day before or after. That wasn't convenient, but she offered to do it 8/20 for Orlandojug. So stay tuned as I see whether that will work. Meanwhile, she said it would be ok for me to give her presentation for GatorJug! Check it out on the JaxJug site. Sound good? Let me know of presenters, presentations and venues y'all like and I'll do my best to accommodate.I'm just back from an amazing learning experience at www.solidcon.com in beautiful San Francisco.

Full details and RSVP here. This month we'll meet at First Magnitude Brewery and have a relaxed "Open Spaces" style meeting. What is Open Spaces? That's inspired by the formal Open Spaces approach where the subjects that are most interesting get discussed. In our case, we have one member who just finished two smartphone apps, so those case studies are very interesting candidates for discussion. We have another member who is working with a startup that is adding lots of features to their website practically real time. I could go on, but I think you get the idea.First Magnitude has a big, open courtyard in back, so look for me and bring whatever you'd like to support your talk. Digital is great, too!FYI, GatorJUG has one ticket to Open Source Bridge to raffle off. It's a fantastic conference. We also may have discounts available to…Continue
