Hi all,

I was just wondering whether anyone was interested in having a social
get together, chin wag, couple of beers etc in the near future ?

Hi all,

Good to hear that people are still watching the list. I've been off
the radar this year - we had our first kid in January and I've been a
bit preoccupied since.

I'm up for a meet-up one evening. Mondays and Tuesdays work best for
me.

Dave S - did you have anywhere particular in mind?

Dave Patterson.

Hi Dave,
Congrats on the first kid Dave. Excellent news. Would somewhere on the
outskirts of Bristol be ok for everyone ? For me its a case of being
able to park close so that I can walk to the door. The arthritis is
none to good these days.

Hi Guys,

Let me know the details and I should be able to pop along.
I'd need to park as well as I'm commuting these days.

Hi everyone,
Can anyone suggest a good pub around the Bristol outskirts ?
Unfortunately I am not familiar with the area.

How about Channings on Pembroke Rd in Clifton. It is quiet weekdays and
there is plenty of parking.

I can't make the 10th. I'll skip this one unless it gets arranged for
the following week.
Tue/Wed/Thu is normally OK for me.

I'll be there. If you let the bar know you're there to meet someone
they should be able to help.

I'll bring a big java book just to make sure!

See you tomorrow.

Dave Patterson.

Hi all,

Good to meet a few more faces last night.

Steve - I was going on about an online video tutorial for GIT. Just
found the link: http://www.gitcasts.com/posts/railsconf-git-talk It
goes on for a while but if you're used to SVN then it's easy enough to
follow. Does anyone on the list have experience with Mercurial? Would
be interesting to compare.

Matthew - The Bristol based .net group is http://www.dotnetdevnet.com.
I've not made it to one of their sessions but it sounds like they are
well supported.

Dave - If you want to get into SQL and JDBC stuff then "native" java
databases are an easy starting place. HSQL is probably the lightest of
all: http://hsqldb.org
Apache Derby is another option. http://db.apache.org/derby/quick_start.html


Everyone seemed keen to do it again so I'll post up another social
date for some time in October. Let me know if you've got any
preferences.

Cheers.

Dave Patterson.

Hi all,

Having a chat with you guys was an absolute godsend. It gave me more
information and things to think of than I could have possible dreamed
of. Excellent. I'm just examining Oracle and sql books etc now. Oracle
seems well documented as does sql. I will have a look at apache derby
as well, thanks Dave. Looks like amazon may take a hit later on once
I've found some good reading material !
I certainly would like to meet up again and have a chat, so count me
it please.

Regards.,

Dave S

I found the "JDBC API Tutorial and Reference" useful when learning
JDBC a while back ... I think they are on the third edition these
days.

Cheers
