Java Technology Evangelist Simon Ritter attends St. Petersburg JUG
DataArt's Yakov Sirotkin has staged the most successful meeting of the Java User Group in St. Petersburg to date: a recent event was attended by Java Technology Evangelist Simon Ritter.
In his presentation "The Roar Of The Tiger", Sun Microsystem's Ritter discussed new features and updates of Java 5, including design themes, language changes, major new features, generics and compatibility.
Russia's only St. Petersburg JUG is one of the Top 25 JUGs in the world. Besides Java expertise, members of the group are known for their hospitality: after the presentation, they treated Ritter to Russian beer in a nearby pub. Ritter's own impressions can be found on his blog.
