The January JUG tour continues to the Pacific Northwest. Yesterday, I visited the Seattle JUG and presented From Spring Boot 2 to Spring Boot 3 with Java 21 and Jakarta EE for 30 attendees at the Microsoft Reactor in Redmond. It was a very engaging group with lots of questions and great discussions following the presentation.
Even with free pizza and drinks, getting 30 people to show up at a JUG event is very good for most JUGs. For Seattle JUG, this has only happened before with Venkat or Josh as speakers. After the event, a group of us went for burgers and fries at a local restaurant. All in all a very successful evening!
