Join in for free in London and participate in the Apache NetBeans process!

Apache NetBeans Day UK 2018

Geertjan Wielenga

NetBeans wouldn’t be NetBeans without the regularly occurring NetBeans Days, which are community events that happen all over the world, organized by enthusiastic NetBeans community members.

Apache NetBeans (incubating) is moving along, with the first Apache NetBeans Beta release having been made available recently via the Apache Software Foundation. A brand new website is also up and running at the location below, while netbeans.org will be rerouted to this address soon:

netbeans.apache.org

The process is a thorough one, with pieces of NetBeans, from code to documentation, moving bit by bit over to governance by the Apache Software Foundation. To see what has been going on recently, see the NetBeans contributions to the Apache incubator report for January 2018 and for April 2018.

NetBeans wouldn’t be NetBeans without the regularly occurring NetBeans Days, which are community events that happen all over the world, organized by enthusiastic NetBeans community members. Over the years, the University of Greenwich in London has played a key role in organizing the UK community of NetBeans users. And so, as every year, this time and for the first time under the auspices of the Apache Software Foundation, NetBeans Day welcomes you again to join in and participate for free to find out and network with others in the Apache NetBeans community on Friday, April 27, 2018.

Sign up here: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/apache-netbeans-day-uk-2018-tickets-43401128945

Whether you are using NetBeans or not, if you’re a programmer in any shape or form, come and find out from experts from around the world about the latest tips and insights, while hanging out in the wonderful environment that is the University of Greenwich!
