Yesterday I spoke at the Toronto JUG with an audience of around 30 interested JUG members. This was the last stop on my mini-tour of Canada, and I did the From Spring Boot 2 to Spring Boot 3 with Java 21 and Jakarta EE presentation here as well. Many thanks to Theresa and IBM for hosting the event!
We had lots of good questions asked and (hopefully) answered as well as great discussions that continued at a restaurant nearby. I really enjoy speaking at Java User Groups. It is usually much more interactive than a regular conference talk, and an opportunity to meet the local Java community at their home turf. I have visited quite a few Java User Groups this year, and this is definitely something I will continue with next year. If you are involved in a JUG and looking for speakers, please let me know!
