Tomorrow evening, I’ll be speaking at the Princeton area Java User Group meeting about interoperability between .NET and Java. This should be a fun time, as I look forward to meeting some more folks in the Java community! I met Yakov Fain, the group’s leader, at JavaOne earlier this year and we both thought it would be a good idea to talk about interoperability between Java and the Microsoft platform. As I like to say, “Interoperability happens”.
The Princeton JUG meets at the Infragistics office in East Windsor, NJ. While I’m sure I’ll take some good ol’ fashioned ribbing from the Java guys as a Microsoft guy, I’ll have to rib them on claiming the “Princeton” name when they meet in East Windsor.
For those of you not local to the area, there is a town to the east of Princeton, NJ named West Windsor, NJ. It is common for businesses in West Windsor (which borders Princeton) to use the tony Princeton name to describe their location (and be teased about it by folks who actually live in Princeton itself). But using the Princeton name in East Windsor, which is two towns away… well, I guess that’s a new extreme?!
[Updated:] – Thanks to everyone who attended the JUG meeting Tuesday night! You can find my presentation slides here.
