JHUG Virtual Meetup 24/10 – working abroad #java #jug #greece #jobs

Η επόμενη μας συνάντηση θα είναι λιγοτερο τεχνική , μάλλον λιγο πιο πρακτική. Θέμα μας θα είναι η δουλειά στο εξωτερικό. Αρκετοί από εμάς έχουμε φύγει  (Αμερική/ Ευρώπη) και πολλοί άλλοι ειναι ήδη στην διαδικασία. Σκοπός της συνάντησης ειναι να μαζέψουμε ανθρώπους απο διαφορετικές χώρες, και να ανταλλάξουμε απόψεις για

  • την δυναμική της τοπικής αγοράς IT
  • το πόσο ευκολα μπορείς να δουλειά και πως
  • το κόστος ζωής
  • πρακτικά ζητήματα μετανάστευσης (ιδιαίτερα εκτός EU)

Θα είναι επίσης μια ευκαιρία live, ανθρωποι που ειναι στην διαδικασία ή στην σκέψη να ρωτήσουν και να μάθουν.

Θα ήθελα να παρακαλέσω λοιπόν τα μέλη μας που ειναι ήδη στο εξωτερικό (ή και φίλους) αν μπορουν να μας διαθέσουν 1-2 ώρες και να συμμετέχουν στο google hangout.

Το link για το hangout θα γινει διαθέσιμο 1 ώρα πριν. Μπορείτε να βρείτε πληροφορίες ή και να επικοινωνήσετε στο jhug.slack.com.

Ευχαριστώ

•    Design high-performance RESTful web services serving billions of requests a week
•    Personalize content and promotions based on user interests
•    Deliver billions of e-mail messages efficiently
