Here's a reminder and a confirmation of the location for our February meeting.
The topic this month is Jython, presented by Charles Anderson.
The topic of the talk is Jython, which is Python implemented in Java. We will begin by presenting an overview and introduction to the Python programming language and the general concept of scripting or extension languages to integrate larger software projects written in other languages. We will then discuss how Jython can be used to script Java classes to leverage existing Java code. We will conclude by mentioning other scripting languages that can be used with Java.
Charles Anderson is an independent software consultant and an assistant professor of computer science at Western Oregon University. He has 24 years of experience in the software industry, working for start-up firms, as well as larger companies, in Silicon Valley and abroad. Although he has worked on a wide range of projects from firmware to finance, his real passion lies in systems and infrastructure programming including networking, databases, and tools. He currently lives and works on a small farm outside of Monmouth, Oregon.
We have books and some t-shirts to give away that were donated by Sun. We will have a drawing for at least one book. Java T-shirts will be given to first-time attendees while they last.
We are at Willamette University in the Collins Science Center - room 408. Here's a link to a campus map: http://www.willamette.edu/map/campus_map.pdf and here's a link to Google maps if you need driving directions: http://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&q=willamette+university&ie=UTF8&z=16&iwloc=addr&om=1
Parking on State and Winter streets is the closest to the Collins Science Center. The spots are metered, but enforcement ends at 6pm.
Below, I am updating our schedule with presentation information through March. Thanks again to all who volunteered to present.
All meetings will start at 5:30pm, with the first 30 minutes reserved for networking, and presentations starting at 6pm.
If you know of any businesses that would like to sponsor refreshments, please let me know and we will work on that for future meetings. In the meantime, bring food and drink if you will need it.
