The March meeting of the Front Range UNIX Users Group will
be held at 4:00 P.M. on Tuesday March 9 in Building 1 of Sun's
Broomfield Campus (directions below).
Jini is Sun's exciting new technology that provides for the spontaneous
networking of devices and services. Sun Microsystems' Stu Stern and Jeff
Johnson will give an overview of this new component of the Java
platform, along with insights into why it will revolutionize all aspects
of distributed computing -- in your car, in your home, and in the
Stu Stern is Director of Sun's North American Java Centers, and is
responsible for all of Sun's Java consulting services in the US and
Canada. Prior to joining Sun, Stu spent ten years working as a Wall
Street systems professional, most recently as VP of Equity Trading
Systems at PaineWebber.
Jeff Johnson is the manager of the Rocky Mountain Java Center, located
in Sun's new Broomfield Campus.
Before joining Sun's Java Center, Jeff worked for
ten years as a systems software engineer on various portions of the
Hubble Space Telescope ground system and was a keynote speaker at the
1997 JavaOne Developer's Conference.
This meeting will be held in Building 1 at Sun's Broomfield Campus.
Take U.S. 36 to the Interlocken Loop / StorageTek Drive exit and head
south-west on Interlocken Loop.
The construction barricades near the exit ramp make it seem like you
can't head south on Interlocken Loop, but yes, you can.
Continue on Interlocken Loop through the construction zone
until you just about dead-end into Eldorado Boulevard.
Turn left on Eldorado and then right into your first driveway, which
is Sun's Building 1 at 500 Eldorado Boulevard.
Beware using the map-generation engines to generate your own
map; at least mapquest.com put's Sun's new building in the wrong place.
You will need to fill out a visitor badge when you arrive, so be
sure to allow yourself some extra time before the meeting.
