Subject: [ajug-members] Latte Group
I'd like your feedback on a few items. Joe Talafous was kind enough to
take on the leadership on the Latte study group which is targeted at
those folks interested in learning many of the base-level Java and J2EE
skills. They have done a fantastic job pulling together a Wiki,
tutorials and meetings.
The job market has heated up and I've received a few requests for
entry-level Java/J2EE programmers.
A critical success factor for our Atlanta-based Java community is
growth. At some point, some of the AJUG'ers will hit it big and retire.
Others will move on to non-Java and perhaps non-software career paths.
As a community we all need to be recruiting for future AJUG members.
Key presenters and sponsors are most interested in an organization that
is vibrant, thriving, large and representative of a large cross-section
of the local market (corp. america, consultants and ISVs).
- How do we encourage "newbies" to join our Latte group?
- What mentoring can we provide for these folks looking to increase
- What is the correct path for newbies? Please check out the following
attempt at a path
- How do we encourage more participation from current Java developers
who otherwise don't attend?
