In Brazil there is a cool Java meeting called Casual Class, promoted by Globalcode. It happens each two months, focusing on some subject, with points of view of three or four professionals.
Afterwards we have pizza, beer, wine, and networking.
We have already talked about JavaOne 2009, Robotics, Java EE 6, Cloud Computing. Next Feb 26 it will happen again, and the subject will be Spring. My colleagues will talk about Spring 3.0, Spring Tools, and Spring in Cloud Computing. In the same meeting we're going to launch SBUG: Spring Brazil User Group.
I'll be there too, talking about Spring Roo.
Considering that there is a lot of good stuff available in English, I don't intend to show here basic Spring Roo usage. But as an appetizer for may Brazilian fellows I have just written a post in Portuguese and it is available at Globalcoders blog.
