Here we are again and we would like to invite you to our next session!
Topic: Caching: principles and features, in Ehcache and JSR-107
The goal of this talk is to discuss caching in an application, why and when to use it but also when not to. From this base we will move to discuss features that are common enough that they ended up in JSR-107, and discuss the matching ones in Ehcache. Then we will look around at different features that can be found in Ehcache, from the open-source version up to the Terracotta clustered one. To spice up the presentation, we will side track into technical details or design dilemma to illustrate the not so quiet life of an open-source project.
Speaker: Louis Jacomet
When: December 5th, 2013 starting at 19:00
Where: ESI, Rue Royale 67, 1000 Brussels (THIS IS A NEW LOCATION)

OCTO contacted us about a free event that may be if interest for some of you.
OCTO Technology, XebiaLabs & Cloudbees co-organize a workshop with hands-on Continous Deployment on September 12 at ICAB.
It does not fit perfectly into the rules of the BruJUG (open cards here) as the workshop will use the DeployIt proprietary solution and a few words abouts Jenkins Enterprise will be pronounced. However, it is really a nice opportunity to have an in-depth view of Continuous Deployment patterns through a concrete example.
The link to the event : https://deployit.eventbrite.com/
It’s free and attendees are required to come with their laptop and VirtualBox installed.
Naturally catering will be provided the necessary fuel to participate to this 3h workshop ;-)

Date: May 30 2013

If you were assigned to design and implement a business process based application, what would you decide about how the user interface should look like? User interface design is the most time consuming task in a software development process. It is highly subjective and under heavy criticism by end-users.
This presentation will help you better deal with this problem, exploring strategies to represent business processes in a way that end-users can easily understand what they see based on their business knowledge. We will discuss about a different approach for Business-IT traceability based on UX, an architecture and a methodology to support constant process changes, navigation approaches and the right widgets for the right actions.
Out next event is approaching and this time we join the Brussels Google Technology User Group for a joint event on Android.
The location is the usual and the program is a mix on different Android related topics. The main talk discusses “How to make your
Android apps suck”… sounds promising, isn’t it? ;-) But there is more check out the details on the web site!

The importance of digital signatures and dematerialization of paper becomes more and more apparent in our developers life. Soon or later, everybody of us will get in touch with these technologies, which are clearly the future.
Mostly unnoticed, a lot of services in Belgium and Brussels are migrating to what is called “guichet électronique” – the electronic citizens desk. Soon, we will do our citizens administration obligations via the internet without passing hours in waiting line in the communal offices!
This said, Belgium is one of the pioneers in e-identification. Did you know? The electronic ID card has been introduced long time ago and since 2011 every Belgian citizen has an ID card of this type.
Did you ever wonder how this works and especially how to integrate with the Belgian eID card? Actually, there are Java libraries available to interface your application with the eID card and that’s exactly what we will speak about in our next session!
** 21.02.2013 – Commons eID – Get in Touch with Belgian’s eID Card **
The conference location is open as of 18:30, conference start is 19:00. The location is the usual – the nice rooms of the HU Brussels (room number to be defined). This session will be relatively short (except if you have many questions :-) and you are invited to join the crowd for a bit of networking and a drink afterwards!
Sponsors: TRASYS Group, Megabanner and CTS! Thank you! Without you, this would not be possible!
FOSDEM needs you! Every year, the FOSDEM team is assisted by an enthusiastic team of volunteers to help out with various tasks and make the event a fun and safe place for all our visitors. Although we’ve become pretty good at organising a large conference, we’re a small team and can not be everywhere at once. Which is why we enlist volunteers from among our visitors every year.
Extra hands are especially welcome during buildup on Friday, starting at noon, and more so during cleanup on Sunday evening. In case you’re worried about missing lunch, free pizza will be provided for volunteers so nobody will have to go hungry.
A short overview of the tasks:
- Setting up the venue on Friday: this mostly involves carrying tables to their destination and setting them up, putting up signage, covering the walls in brown paper, …
- Deploying the network on Friday: rolling out, neatly securing and crimping UTP cables. People with experience crimping cables are very welcome to help out!
- Manning the infodesk: help out fellow visitors who have questions, sell T-shirts, … Must be a good English speaker, but if you know other languages besides that it certainly won’t hurt.
- Moderation: make sure all talks end on time by giving speakers cues near the end of their time slot. Keep an eye out on room security and report potential issues such as overcrowded rooms before it becomes an issue.
- Safety: keep an eye out for potentially hazardous situations such as patches of ice that could trip people up, overcrowded rooms, … This also involves barring entrance to rooms that are at full capacity so we can keep the conference safe for everyone. This can be combined with moderation.
- Teardown and cleanup on Sunday evening: collecting beer bottles, tear down the network, pull brown paper off the walls, take down the signage, stack the rental tables in neat heaps, broom the floors, …
If you would like to help out and give back to the community, please come join the ranks. You can do so by subscribing to the volunteers mailing list. This is where we will coordinate tasks so the event can run smoothly. We promise it’ll be fun!
In addition to general volunteer work, we are also looking for volunteers specifically to help out with video-related work. This involves:
- Operating a camera in one of the five rooms which will be recorded by the FOSDEM video team;
- Regulating the audio in one of the rooms;
- or operating the DVswitch station.
While A/V experience is of course always welcome, all that’s really needed is that you’re interested; on-the-job training will be provided.
People interested in helping out with the video team should subscribe to the video team mailing list before the event where important announcements will be made, and be prepared to join us on IRC during the event.
Note that it’s perfectly okay to subscribe (and volunteer) to both; just make sure to let the respective coordinators know when necessary.
