The Bulgarian Java Users Group (BGJUG) is the World’s Java community representative in Bulgaria. The Java Users Groups are local organizations all around the world, which unites various groups of specialists, who are strongly interested in the Java-related technologies. Java Users Groups organize regular formal and informal meetings, conferences and seminars, on which they gather their members in order to exchange information related to Java. Usually, BGJUG members organize seminars and discussions monthly. The invitations for the events are published on this site, in the section “Events“. The materials (such as presentations and demos), created by BGJUG members are collected and stored in the BGJUG’s Google Code Repository

A Bit of History
The first oficial meeting of the Bulgarian JUG took place on 26th of September 2007. Group’s chairman/coordinator is Petar Tahchiev. Since 12th of October 2007 BGJUG maintains mailing list, where are considered questions and problems from the Java World, ideas for future seminars and topics related to the Java-community in Buglaria as well. The mailing list is accessible on the following URL: http://groups.google.com/group/bg-jug. At the same time had been created the BGJUG’s first site, but its mainatanance was discontinued after a few months. On 28th of July 2011 was created the current site, which aim is to represent the group in Internet and to serve as an information board for meetings organisations. The site aggregates the posts from the group’s members’ blogs related somehow to Java. On 23rd of September 2011 was created a Twitter account of The BGJUG, which main aim is to representat us in Twitter. It will be used also for sharing news, announcements for meetings and seminars, i.e. everything which concerns BGJUG activities.

I’ve been an advisor to the depury prime minister of Bulgaria for the past year and a half. And on this year’s OpenFest conference I tried to report on what we’ve achieved. It is not that much and there are no visible results, which is a bit disappointing, but we (a small motivated team) believe […]
As a consequence of the Dyn attack many major websites were down, including twitter – the browsers could not resolve an IP address of the servers because the authoritative name server (Dyn) was down. Whether that could be addressed globally, I don’t know – there was an interesting discussion on reddit about my proposal to […]
In a beginner’s guide to concurrency, I mentioned advisory locks. These are not the usual table locks – they are table-agnostic, database-specific way to obtain a named lock from your application. Basically, you use your database instance for centralized application-level locking. What could it be used for? If you want to have serial operations, this […]
Yesterday Dyn, a DNS-provider, went down after a massive DDoS. That led to many popular websites being inaccessible, including twitter, LinkedIn, eBay and others. The internet seemed to be “crawling on its knees”. We’ll probably read an interesting post-mortem from Dyn, but why did that happen? First, DDoS capacity is increasing, using insecure and infected […]

I’ll being this post with a rant about the state of scientific publishing, then review the technology “disruption” landscape and offer a partial improvement that I developed (source). Scientific publishing is quite important – all of science is based on previously confirmed “science”, so knowing what the rest of the scientific community has done or […]

“The decline of Stackoverflow” is now trending on reddit, and I started this post as a comment in the thread, but it got too long. I’m in the 0.01% (which means rank #34) but I haven’t contributed almost anything in the past 4 years. Why I stopped is maybe part of the explanation why “the […]
