SeaJUG is an all volunteer effort - which means items such as the website and mailing list are updated as schedules afford. We meet on the 3rd Tuesday of every month. We need suggestions/volunteers for topics! If you'd like to donate your time/skills to the cause, contact Nimret Sandhu.
Let's sing a story about ol Timmy. He yearned to write more complex code. As he ventured in the land of the multi-threaded grabs, He felled swiftly on despair and traps.
