QCon has invited our JUG members to their first Java Community Event on Thursday November 20th, 2008. This free event, hosted by QCon San Francisco, will be a one-hour long panel on the State of Java with well known Java luminaries and QCon SF speakers such as:
- Rod Johnson: Creator of Spring

and Entity Manager
- Max Ross: Hibernate Shards Project Lead
