One of California's least appreciated resources is the California State University (CSU) system. It's a network of local colleges which offer high quality education at a great price (both for traditional undergraduates and for life-long dabblers like me).
I also like to give colloquium talks at them. This time 'round, I'll be talking about some underappreciated aspects of Java, and why I think it's currently the best programming language around.
P.S. Want me to speak to your college or user group? As long as you're in Northern California, I'd be glad to.
