Java Champions get the opportunity to provide feedback, ideas, and direction that will help Oracle grow the Java Platform.

The London Java Community (LJC), aka the London JUG. We hosting a variety of events (talks, coding dojos, unconferences and more) on a weekly or fortnightly basis. For those interested in the wider ecosystem, we also act as a 'mother ship' for other user groups such as Scala, Clojure, Jboss + others. Most recently we won the open seat on the Java SE/EE Executive Committee and hope to represent Java developer's interests world wide with regards to the JCP and Java standards.
