PLUG Meeting: Monday, January 4, 2016: Java

President Jason Wallwork will present an introduction to the Java programming language. Java is a used on 3 billion mobile phones, all Blu-Ray players, 89% of desktops in the US, 125 million TV devices and there are 9 million Java Developers worldwide. The Android operating system, a spinoff of Linux used on most mobile phones, runs apps in Java. Because of its pervasiveness, if you're interested in programming, it's one of the top languages you should consider. It's object-oriented programming (OOP), cross-platform and much easier to use than languages like C and C++. Even if you're not planning on programming, learning a language, any language, is an important part of understanding how computers think.

Remember that PLUG now meets on the FIRST MONDAY of each month. For this meeting only, we will be meeting upstairs in the library. It's on the second floor (the floor above where we usually meet).

Bill Hopkins will show a demo of Android X86 as booted from a USB Flash drive. Android X86 is a version of the mobile operating system (based on Linux) that has been ported to run on PCs.

In the event that the weather is bad and Bill can't make it, or there is time, Jason Wallwork will present an introduction to the Java programming language.

Being December, this is also our Christmas party meeting. There will be pizza, cookies, pop, egg-nog and coffee. No charge for memmbers although donations are gratefully accepted. If you're not a member, $5 or pay what you can. Or bring along your own snack to share. We'll do the presentation or two (no more than an hour) and then we will break for food.
