This month's topic: High-Tech Block Party!
Java developers, architects, programmers, and enthusiasts: get ready for a real adrenaline rush. The Java Road Trip: Code to Coast tour is visiting 20 cities across the United States showcasing Oracle's commitment to everything Java. Heading up the tour are key Java technologists from Oracle, who will be demonstrating the latest Java software, engaging with Java User Group (JUG) members, and meeting with enterprise developers and consumers.
The event will be hosted from 6-9pm at Pioneer Courthouse Square
701 SW 6th Avenue (bordered by SW Yamhill, SW Morrison and SW Broadway) Portland, OR 97205.
This high-tech block party on wheels is your chance to share the spirit of innovation that is the essence of Java.
Speaker: Brent Christian
Brent Christian, a Senior Member of Technical Staff with Oracle, will be doing technology demos for the Portland event.

This will be quite different from the typical PJUG meeting, so who knows what to expect? :)
