Foojay Podcast #48: JUG Oberpfalz, JCON Conference, and JAVAPRO Magazine

Once a month, in the Foojay Podcast, we discuss the history of a Java User Group and the people behind it.

In this episode, we are in Oberpfalz, Germany, for a particular reason; the organizers of the local JUG are the same people responsible for the JCON conference in Cologne in a few weeks.

Let’s also learn more about this Java community in Germany!
