Yesterday, I had the pleasure of speaking at the Nashville Java User Group. The JUG was rebooted last year and now features monthly meetups. So far, every speaker has been a Java Champion and there is pizza and drinks at every event.
My talk about migrating from Spring Boot 2 to Spring Boot 3 focuses on how to deal with the namespace change from
jakarta.* is still popular. More and more attendees have migrated, but still appreciate the tips and tricks provided.
One thing the Nashville JUG does at every meetup, which I am going to shamelessly copy to Javaforum Malmö, is Job Talk. Job Talk is a couple of minutes before the presentation dedicated to those looking for jobs, or are recruiting for jobs. An excellent opportunity to connect.
