    the NEJUG Holiday Party is scheduled on our normal "second Thursday" in December, but it is not a normal presentation meeting. Instead, it's an "all fun time" event where we get to chat, eat, drink, and socialize. Think of it as an extended meeting break, without the before-and-after presentation parts. (And with food choices other than pizza!)

    IMPORTANT: Unlike our regular meetings, the holiday party is NOT free. You must purchase tickets in advance, using our EventBrite event page. We are offering an Early-Bird price discount (until November 15), so grab your tix now and save a few bucks!

    Location is Princeton Station Restaurant in Chelmsford, MA

    Ticket prices will be $30 through November 15*, $34/after*. Donations to help defray the cost of course are welcome.
    *EventBrite price will include a processing fee of about $2.90

    Princeton Station
    147 Princeton Street
    North Chelmsford, MA 01864

    There will be a selection of delicious appetizers. Soft drinks and coffee will be served, and drinks of all kinds will be available at the cash bar.
    Come enjoy the great food, fine venue, great company, and raffle prizes! We always want to make it a better event with more to offer.
    We'll have a buffet with a variety of food to choose from, including vegetarian options. Ham, turkey, potatoes, Mediterranean platter, fruit tray, spanikopita, more!

  • Have you ever wanted to deploy hundreds if not thousands of virtual servers with the single click of a button. Who hasn't? With a little JSON and the utility Terraform by HashiCorp, this power can be yours. 

    By deploying your infrastructure as a service, you can not only keep track of what resources are where, but also easily adjust or deploy additional resources without the need for navigating cumbersome user interfaces.

  • Java Modules are the future. However, our enterprise applications have legacy code, a lots of it. How in the world do we migrate from the old to the new? What are the primary challenges?

    In this presentation we will start with an introduction to modules and learn how to create them. Then we will dive into the differences between unnamed modules, automatic modules, and explicit modules. After that we will discuss some key limitations of modules, things that may surprise your developers if they're not aware of. Finally we will discuss how to migrate current applications to use modules.

  • While "DevOps" is a very overrated and misused marketing term, we have many DevOps stories from around the world proving that shared responsibility between Dev and Ops can work out really well.

    A key component of DevOps is open communication and feedback loops. Monitoring data is one source of these feedback loops. Too often, however, this is only done in Operations for firefighting and root cause analysis. Kevin will discuss approaches of Shifting-Left Performance into the Continuous Delivery Pipeline to give earlier and faster performance, scalability and architectural feedback to developers, testers, architects and business.

    The presentation will include some hands-on experience on how to bake monitoring into DevOps tool chains such as JIRA, Bitbucket, Jenkins, Git, HipChat, JMeter, … - there should be something for everyone who wants to learn some new tips & tricks on how to become more “DevOps’y”
