On Tuesday, May 26th, we had our first official BruJUG event and guess what… IT WAS A HUUUUGE SUCCESS! We sold out our first event. How awesome is that? 39 Java passionates gathered in GooglePlex Brussels to share, meet, rebuild the world, try to find solutions to this damn “OutOfMemoryError: PermGen Space” thingy… Actually not that one, but you get my point.
And of course, everyone was there to learn from our 2 first speakers, Anna Haberko and Alex Snaps, who were brave enough to cope with teething troubles and talk to us about Content Strategy and EhCache. Great presentations, great content.
And of course, since good traditions are better copy/pasted, everyone… well… almost everyone gathered in a pub for third half time.
Now that this great event is over, it’s your turn to work a little bit. As we said at the end, this BruJUG is not our BruJUG, it’s yours. Your feedback and ideas are invaluable to us, so we have prepared a little feedback survey for you to help us set up an even better event next time. But there’s a catch: the survey is on our forum! So you will have to register there and wander around, and who knows… you might like it! We can’t wait to read what you thought about the venue, the speakers and their content. And more importantly we can’t wait for your great ideas and propositions for future events.
In the meantime, and thanks to your feedback, we will try to set up another event before we all go spread our toes in the sun… Uh! Sorry… sun creates bad reflections, can’t read my stack trace anymore! Anyway, you get my point. So stay tuned to our Google Group, our LinkedIn group, our wiki, our blog, our Twitter and open your windows for our travelling pidgins because news will follow soon.
Thanks everyone (and big up to Tasha!) for making this first BruJUG event an awesome success. Bring it on!
