Join us for the Java Posse Roundup 2007 in Crested Butte, CO from March 6th-9th 2007

Also we have a special event coming up - our 100th episode which will be recorded live in front of an audience at the Googleplex in Mountain View. This event is open to the public and will take place at 6.30pm on January 22nd 2007 in Tech Talk 42 (in Building 42). Please let us know through the Java Posse Google group if you are planning on attending so that we can get a head count. This is of course a free event. Keep an eye on or the Google group for more details.

This is building 42 in the Googleplex - Building 42 is shown in the center of the map. At 6ish you should find the parking is clearing out so it should not be hard to find a space, although there is some building work taking place to install solar panels.


We were lucky enough to get an interview with Charles Oliver Nutter and Thomas Enebo all about JRuby as they flew into town for a visit to Sun HQ
