A reminder that the Denver Java Users Group meeting is Wednesday. We
have two big-hitters in the Java world flying in to tell us what's
coming in the new J2SE 5.0 (also know as Java 1.5), now in beta and
scheduled for release this fall.

Our speakers will be Joshua Block and Neal Gafter. Joshua Bloch is
author of the award-winning "Effective Java," the lead designer and
implementer of numerous Java platform features, including the new
features in J2SE 5.0, the Java Collections Framework, and the assertion
features from JDK 1.4.

He formerly was a distinguished engineer at Sun, now a principal
engineer at Google.

Google co-worker Neal Gafter, also a former Sun engineer, will join Josh
on stage for the 6 p.m. Basic Concepts session. They will present a
multiple-choice Java quiz -- questions meant to be understandable by
beginners but could stump even the Java pros.

Tell your co-workers. This is an event not to be missed. Stay to the end
when we'll be giving away a record number of door prizes.

If you'd like to go home Wednesday with a guaranteed book in hand, the
best way is to review one for our web site. Book reviewers get the book
for free. Here are the review books available. Email me if you would
like to pick up a review book at Wednesday's meeting.

Denver JUG member Mike Clark's latest book, just off the presses last
month: Pragmatic Project Automation: How to Build, Deploy and Monitor
Java Applications. (Mike will be speaking about project automation at
our October meeting.)
