April Meeting

Thursday April 26th 2007, 7-9PM.

Topic: Web2.0 and Java

Community, metadata, ranking and websites that grow over time are attributes of Web2.0. What else? Come to the University of Cheikh Anta Diop Campus, ESP. Then, stroll over to the first meeting of SeneJUG and find out. Mike Levin will tell you all about Web2.0 and even show you some snippets in Java. We’ll talk about mashups, semantics, custom RSS feeds based on smart filters, tags and tag clouds, and a glimpse into the future. We’ll check out a fantastically popular Web2.0 website and do a feature walkthrough so you’ll be clear about the Web2.0 features. You’ll walk away with some facts and a few ideas that might inspire you to write your own Web2.0 website.
