Virtual Java User Group - simple concept with quality content

Virtual JUG is a simple concept based on the idea to organize a group that would generate quality content.
It is simpler to get technical leaders from around the world to present online and there are no travel cost concerns.  The intent is not to replace local JUG's but rather increase their value and also represent a sort of global JUG. Additionally it enables developers without an access to a local jug with a means to connect with many developers around the world.


Live sessions are streamed online and as chat ##virtualJUG on Freenode is used. But you don't have to trust my word for the quality of the content, here is a list of the past sessions: 


Many thanks to Simon Maple the organizing team Anton ArhipovGeert BevinJames GoughOliver White. Keep up the good work.

We also went through a high-level overview starting with initial with run level and job control.
While most of the demoing is not visible via the slides I decided to share the slides anyway:
