[jug.bg] jProfessionals 3.0 Venkat Subramaniam

Usually I do the review of what we do in our JUG, but Dmitry did quite a good job and he has the best pictures.

Some minor additions from me:

Venkat Subramaniam also known simply as Venkat was here. Venkat is a rockstar (JavaOne Rockstar is someone who did an amazing session at JavaOne. Venkat is 16 (sixteen!!!) times J1 Rockstar in just 4 years).


Venkat did two sessions and a workshop. The two sessions (one on lambdas and one soft-code session on bad code) were highly popular, probably 150-200 people came.

Then there was a workshop that turned into a discussion on lambdas and quality code in general. Which was awesome.

Some highlights:







Java, JDK, JRE locations on OSX

JRE for browsers (mine was 1.8.0_101, 160mb, was up to date):
/Library/Internet Plug-Ins/JavaAppletPlugin.plugin/Contents/Home/bin/java

JDK, JRE installed with installer:

I had only:
$ du -d1 -h
312M ./jdk1.8.0_25.jdk

Was not up to date.

After installing U101, I had:
$ du -d1 -h
338M ./jdk1.8.0_101.jdk
312M ./jdk1.8.0_25.jdk

I removed the old one.
