Java Hack Night
Wednesday, September 25th, 2013
6:30 - 8:30 PM
We're having the first ever Houston Java Hack Night! Come one, come all -- whether you're just starting as a Java Developer or an old pro or somewhere in between, come with your laptop and be ready to code alongside your fellow Java developers and have StackOverflow.com in real life -- "Anybody worked with X"? "How am I supposed to handle this Exception?" If you'd like to start an open source project or would like to find the opportunity to join one, this could be a great opportunity to find like-minded individuals. We'll have pizza, sodas, and plenty of code! If you'd like to give a quick (5 minute) lightning talk, this would be a great opportunity to do just that as well. If it goes well, we'll have these on a regular basis in addition to regular HJUG meetings!
RSVP by going to http://hjug09252013.eventbrite.com We will need an accurate head count in order to know how much pizza to order. Since there may be a large turnout, please only RSVP if you're certain you'll be coming.
Meeting Location: PROS
Houston, TX 77002
Park across the street in the parking garage on Elgin on the 7th floor, taking a parking receipt as you enter the parking garage. Parking is free after 7:00 PM, so you won't have to pay as you exit. Take the elevator to the 3rd floor of the parking garage and walk across the sky bridge. The HJUG meeting will be on the 2nd floor on the left just before you reach the elevator bank.
