A while a go I put the forward the idea about setting up a Jini user group in London. There was pretty good feedback about the idea. Many people felt that it would be better to make the remit of the group slightly wider and focus on future developments in distributed computing. So I am pleased to announce the inaugural meeting of the Next Net user group.
We are going to hold an inaugural meeting at Betfair‘s offices in Hammersmith on Monday December 4th at 6-6.30 pm. If you are interested in future developments in distributed/grid/parallel/large scale/resilient systems then we would love to see you. Please sign up here.
Dan Creswell has agreed to give the first talk on some of the work he has been doing on Amazons EC2 (Elastic Compute Cloud) infrastructure.
The idea is that it should be a very informal group of like minded individuals. Beer and Pizza included!
