BarcelonaJUG at vJUG24 (27/9)

Hello devs!
Did you catch the HolidaysFinishedException()  ?
We hope so! ;-) 
We suppose all of you may know VirtualJUG, aren't you? Well, in any case, it is a great moment to know that there exist a Virtual JUG -usually managed by Simon Maple and Oleg Shelajev- and they hold interesting online presentations focused on Java (and other) technologies. 
They have planned a super 24h online session for the next Tuesday 27th and what we would like to know if you would like to join us to attend. You can have a look on the EMEA schedule: 
Btw, do not worry, we have plans to start around 18h-19h and finish at 22h. Does this sounds interesting? We hope so!
So, what do you think? Would you like to join us in person and share some knowledge watching the sessions while having free food and drinks? 
Finally, we have to thank to Netsuite, because thanks to them we will have the opportunity to organize the event in their beautiful offices and enjoy the food an drinks. 
So, do not loose your time, and RSVPed now! The spots are limited!
See you next 27th! ;-)

Technical debt management strategies


  • Hi devs !!!!!
    We're back again, after the summer and after the conference, and with renewed energies to continue boosting the Java community.
    Our next event will be about Technical Debt and the way to reduce it by our habitual speaker Raquel Pau.
    The technical debt metaphor is gaining significant traction in the agile development community as a way to understand and communicate those issues related with the agreement of accepting bad programming practices in order to achieve fast results (e.g a deadline). However, the idea of getting fast results becomes an illusion, since the cost of building software increases over the time.  
    In order to achieve a good technical debt management, agile methodologies suggest to measure it and add an specific entry in the sprint backlog to fix it incrementally. In this session, we will explore the different categories of technical debt and we will discuss about the different strategies to reduce it. 
    It would be great for us if you can answer this survey about your current status related to the technical debt.

    Register to the event and after having a number of people we will search for a place and a date during October.
