Weekend Reading List #60 – Week of 2/15

Welcome to edition number 60 of the Weekend reading list with suggestions for your weekend read.


The largest Java conference in the US happened between February 16th and 18th. It started with the second edition of the JUG (Java User Group) leaders summit, where JUG leaders from all over the world had the chance to get together and discuss initiatives and share stories. On the 17th, the conference had great speakers, an amazing keynote with the actor and director LeVar Burton, and thousands of attendees. The 18th was reserved for several hands-on workshops. If you missed the event, look for the recordings (not yet available) and follow DevNexus on Twitter to know about future events, hopefully in-person. Thank you, Pratik, Vincent, and everyone else involved in the organization of the event.
