as JUG leader for Indonesia

i am invited by Microsoft to invest more in Azure. and they use a binary
inside the fabric

that will be awesome if we can bring Microsoft to invest Java in his azure
and benefit OpenJDK..

that will be awesome if we have Java also in ChromeOS, or any OS, but Google
have Android also, that become our first collaboration between rather legal
