The Great Java Build-Off!

Wednesday, November 30, 2016
6:30 - 8:30 PM

Presented by

Daniel Rutlege, Scott Wierschem, James Hurley, and Jim Bethancourt

Are you trying to decide which continuous integration platform is right for you? At this meeting, you'll see multiple build systems in action and will be able to decide for yourself, including TeamCity, Jenkins, GoCD and Bamboo.

Meeting Sponsor: Genuent

In an industry that has faced steady pressure toward commoditization and decaying customer experience, we are committed to reintroducing the “human” into human capital. Born from the need for a fresh perspective on the business of IT staffing, Genuent embraces the idea that creating value and positive experiences for our customer families, both consultants and clients, is the path to sustainable success.

Genuent serves as the vessel for a set of shared values and principles which guide our team’s focus and efforts at every level. It is a framework for the creation of outstanding experiences for lasting relationships with our consultants and clients.

We are clear that a brand’s value is measured by the extent to which its aspirations and promises are realized in a material way. We are committed to building our brand one experience at a time.

Genuent only has eyes for IT. We don’t want the distractions and conflicts of other domains diluting our expertise or shifting our focus away from what matters to you.

Learn how Genuent can help you with your IT staffing needs.

Suggested Parking:

Park across the street in the parking garage on Elgin on the 7th floor, taking a parking receipt as you enter the parking garage. Parking is free after 7:00 PM, so you won't have to pay as you exit. Take the elevator to the 3rd floor of the parking garage and walk across the sky bridge. The HJUG meeting will be on the 2nd floor on the left just before you reach the elevator bank.

Sponsor: ZeroTurnaround

ZeroTurnaround has a global team of 150+ individuals. The company’s go-to-market heart beats in Boston, Massachusetts, while our development feet are firmly planted (and rapidly growing) in Estonia, at two offices in Tallinn and Tartu.
