On January 26th, I went back to the NYC JUG to give a preview of Java EE 6. Despite the unmistakable market crash in the NYC area, turnout was very good and folks seemed relatively upbeat.
I went out for Dinner with JUG leader Dario and some of the other JUG members after the talk. The NYC JUG is always a pleasure because of the quality and dynamism of the crowd. I look forward to going back there soon after I get some of the things that have been on my plate done (like updating the EJB 3 in Action code samples for JBoss 5 and GlassFish v2 as well as writing IDE setup instructions for Eclipse/NetBeans that a lot of readers have been asking us for).
