This is the same area when we met in March for Venkat's talks,
but in the two adjoining larger rooms.

Here's a link to the on-campus Map:

K*FORCE has purchased some door prizes in addition to
sponsoring the room.
The Bross Group and the No Fluff Just Stuff Symposia sponsored
bringing in our featured speaker, Howard Lewis Ship.

"Tapestry 5: Java Power, Scripting Ease" - Howard Lewis Ship

What if you could combine the best features of developing web
applications in Java with the best features from other platforms
like Rails and TurboGears? What if you could leverage all the
processing power in Java but leave behind the build/deploy/restart
lifecycle? That's Tapestry 5: a completely new version of the Apache
Tapestry component web framework.

In this session, we'll introduce you to Tapestry 5, and examine how it
embraces all sorts of developer productivity improvements,
including live code reloading, convention over configuration,
and the use of simple Java classes.

Tapestry encourages code reuse, and we'll see how easy it is to
create new components in just a couple of lines of code.

Along the way, we'll see Tapestry's built-in form support, including
sophisticated input validation, and how easy it is to manage
server-side state. We'll also get a preview of some the planned
features, including Ajax support.

Howard Lewis Ship is the creator and lead developer for the Apache
Tapestry project, and the creator of the Apache HiveMind project.
He has over fifteen years of full-time software development under
his belt, with over eight years of Java. He cut his teeth writing
customer support software for Stratus Computer, but eventually traded
PL/1 for Objective-C and NeXTSTEP before settling into Java.


"Agile Java Web development with Resin application server" - Yong
Joseph Bakos


This presentation demonstrates postmodern development approaches
using the features of Caucho Resin. Born as a fast, lightweight
servlet container, Resin is now a mature, albeit understated,
feature- rich application server. Yong will demonstrate Resin's
features including Quercus, a Java implementation of PHP.
Learn how reliable database pooling, 'automagic' load balancing
and distributed sessions and other features can contribute to your
productivity and sanity.
Come see if PHP and Java is better than peanut butter and chocolate.
(Yes, there will be candy.)


Yong Joseph Bakos is the principal of Human-Oriented Systems, his
Denver software development studio. He is a graduate of Northwestern
University in Illinois, where he graduated with a painting degree but
took so many CS courses he is now emotionally scarred for life. He
first moved to Colorado 10 years ago, apologized for not being a
native, and has been happily building systems for Colorado
businesses ever since.

*** AGENDA ***

5:30 - 6:00 p.m. Food, and Networking.
6:00 - 7:00 p.m. Basic Concepts
7:00 - 7:15 p.m. Announcements
7:15 - 8:30 p.m. Main Presentation
8:30 p.m. Door prizes

We will be meeting at the Auraria Higher Education Center (AHEC)
located at 900 Auraria Parkway in room 320 AB of the Tivoli Center.
The campus is adjacent to the Pepsi Center on the North side and
Colfax on the South Side.

Here's a link to the Campus Map followed by the link to the PDF:

We are closest to the Pepsi Center for this month's meeting,
so if you are taking the Light Rail you may want to get off at
the Pepsi Center/Elitch Garden's stop from the "E" or "C" lines
and then head South and go across Auraria Parkway to the Tivoli.

If you get off at the Colfax and Auraria stop,
walk North to the Tivoli Center along Main Street.
Please be aware that there was construction last month
so you may have to walk around to get to the Tivoli building
from the South.

There is also ample parking in this area (cost is $5.00 or cheaper in
some lots) if you're driving.
If you are driving, take Auraria Parkway to across from the Pepsi
Center and head South.
There is a parking lot on one side and a parking structure on the other.
If the attendant attempts to charge you more than $5.00, explain
you are there for an on-campus event and you are to pay the student

Here is an on-campus map that shows the Tivoli Center in the
North end of Campus near 9th & Auraria marked with a red star:

We'd like to thank the Auraria Macintosh User Group who is our
on-campus sponsor along with K*FORCE.

We find this kind of rampant individuality very disturbing. But not this tiny ad:
the value of filler advertising in 2020
