Continuing the initiative

As of today the JUG PH already completed a total of 5 meetups using a hybrid setup.

These meetups were essential as it gives our Filipino Technical Enthusiasts the knowledge of Modern Java Development. Addtionally, with the use of AI in Java, it attracted the students to join these sessions.
