Version 9

    We are creating a JBoss users group which will be holding meetings on the evening of the second Tuesday in every month. The First meeting will be on Tue Feb 8th 2011 Starting at 6PM. The Venue will be room 2.20 in the Beehive which is based in the old library building at the University of Newcastle upon Tyne (directions to venue )


    The intention is the Agenda for future meetings will be driven by what the members interests are and will include talks, chances to meet the project members, technical deep dives and hackathons to allow you to get the most out of the JBoss projects. If you are an experienced user of JBoss or just wondering what open source is and how to get involved, there is a place for you in the JBUG.


    The first couple of sessions have been pre planned and the Agenda for the first is included here, The slides for the first talk are attached to this page

    The JBoss project portfolio

    From humble beginnings with a single project focus, JBoss Application Server, the JBoss organization has grown to encompass dozens of open source projects. In this inaugural session of the Newcastle JBoss User Group, we'll give an overview of the project portfolio. From popular stalwarts to hidden gems, we showcase the  best of JBoss technology. With an emphasis on recent and upcoming releases, it's an opportunity to update your JBoss knowledge and select the best bits for use in your next project.

    Jonathan Halliday has been a JBoss Core Developer for over four years, most recently leading the JBoss Transactions development team. Previous speaking engagements include the Jazoon and JavaOne conferences.
