I previously mentioned that there would be a talk by Marius Bogoevici (ex-JBoss'er) after which I was to do a lightning talk on JBoss Rules & BPM.
|What's new in Java 8?|
It turned out a bit different, as Marius had to call off sick, so they turned up for a set of short talks covering Java 8 release overview, a pretty fun robot war (attendees brought in pre-programmed robots and we watched 10 battles on the main screen), then I got the chance to lightning through a JBoss BRMS talk, and finally Jonathan (meet him here) tutored us on thread safety.
I passed out the famous JBoss BRMS & BPM Suite laptop stickers, that went over pretty well. ;)
|Warm group, great location.|
