Portland Java User Group: JSON Libraries

Oracle (Downtown Campus)
1211 SW 5th Avenue, Suite 800, Room 8005
Portland, Oregon 97204, US (map)



This month's topic: Comparing JSON libraries

JSON has become the de-facto data interchange format for Internet web services. We'll examine open source libraries that make it easy for a Java developer to serialize objects to JSON. This presentation will include a discussion of three popular Java libraries ( json.org, Jackson, and GSON ) as well as a popular Scala library (lift-json).

Speaker: Sean Sullivan

Sean is a software engineer specializing in web services development, mobile applications, and supply chain management systems. Sean works on e-commerce projects at Gilt Groupe's Portland office. Sean is an Apache Software Foundation committer and has contributed to various open source projects, including the OAuth Java library.

PJUG meetings start with some time to eat and socialize (pizza and beverages are provided), followed by the featured speaker, then Q&A, discussion, sometimes a drawing to give away swag. :)

Though we like knowing how many people to expect, you don't have to RSVP, on Upcoming or otherwise. Go ahead and just show up!

Many people also go for a drink and further discussion following the meeting, usually at Tree's restaurant in building lobby.
