In recent years, the Java Community has faced somewhat of a paradox. While Java technology itself has grown and the number of online resources has skyrocketed, local Java User Groups (JUGs) have seen disruptions, with in-person meetings and activities coming to a halt, participation dropping, and even leaders losing interest. In this interactive session, we'll explore strategies to revive the community's spirit. So we can all embrace and celebrate Java's technical advancements.
Join us for an open conversation based on in-depth discussions with JUG leaders from around the world. We'll discuss their experiences, the challenges they've encountered, and the innovative solutions they've adopted. As we come together as a community, we'll address important questions: What role do leaders and organizations play in this revival? How can we collectively reenergize our local communities and celebrate the ongoing evolution of the Java ecosystem? This presentation aims to inspire action and motivate us all to revive this community we love.
