About the NYJavaSIG
The New York Java Special Interest Group (NYJavaSIG) is based in New York City and attracts Java developers from the tri-state region. Through its regular monthly meetings and its website, the NYJavaSIG brings together members of New York's Java community so they can share their tips, techniques, knowledge, and experience.
The NYJavaSIG was founded in 1995 by Frank Greco. Frank delivered the first Java tutorial (along with Scott Oaks) way back on September 25, 1995 at the Equitable Center in midtown Manhattan. Originally there were 5 members of the group. Today there are well over 6,500 members in the NYJavaSIG. We average well over 150 attendees per monthly meeting. The Java developers who attend the NYJavaSIG's regular meetings come to hear the latest about Java Technology from innovative technologists, industry leaders some of which are NYJavaSIG members themselves.
The SIG meets once a month, usually at Google's Engineering offices in the downtown NYC area. We welcome developers, managers, webmasters, new media artists, network administrators and anyone else with an interest in Java Technology.
Past industry speakers include well-known Java Technology experts such as Arthur van Hoff, Jim Waldo, Scott Oaks, Henry Wong, Doug Lea, Karl Jacobs, Ethan Henry, Nat Wyatt, Roman Stanek, Anne Thomas-Manes, Simon Phipps, Peter Haggar, Max Goff, Maurice Balick, Jonathan Nobels, Bob Pasker, Rinaldo DiGiorgio, Steve Ross-Talbot and even Penn and Teller. These industry luminaries represent some of the most important Java Technology organizations on the planet such as Sun Microsystems, Intersystems, AMD, SpringSource, Google, IBM, Research In Motion, Google, etc.
