So we made it to the promised land! The biggest Java Conference in the U.S. (we snuck in) and dedicated our podcast to Java's 20th birthday, and also render tribute to the iconic Java Posse. Back in 2010 they made a series of predictions on what the Year 2015 would bring. Apparently they weren't that off! We also discussed how Java is still relevant (very much so, thank you), and what's on our crowd tech radar.

Big Shakeup this month. Oracle had dismissed a number of Java evangelist positions, and there is no official response from Oracle. Also, java.net is no more! What does it mean? Is it the end of Java as we know it? We really don't know but that doesn't stop us from playing out what could happen!

Computer Science and Kids! Is it important? Are we doing enough? or too much? Take a listen to get the different perspectives on education and programming!

So we go and wake up with the news that Oracles Security Chief didn't like people discovering vulnerabilities on its product (say that again?), then we follow on the new fad covering towns (First it was SAP, then Cloud, to Agile, and now is all about Reactive).

This podcast is special because we have of first guest, Josh Long! @starbuxman. Hailing us on Skype, he talks to us about what's going on with Java within the great Wall of China. We also dive into being Cloud-ready, and what does it mean to remove Unsafe from Java 9

Get ready to be lawyered-up. It's coming! Oracle v Google is not going to be heard by the Supreme Court, and while that might not spell "Doom" just yet, it's fast approaching the reality that APIs are on the verge of copy-right-a-bi-li-ty (that's too many slashes, just for emphasis).

Then we dive into what everyone seems to be consulting on, presenting on, it's the buzzword of the moment, the superstar, the Britney Spears (or Katie Perry) of today. Of course, we are talking of Micro-services. We go and discuss the perspective from many different points of view (from the performance guy to the independent to the small and large shops) and try to figure out is it fad? or is just something we always knew with a different name. So come take a listen!

So as soon as we clicked the Record button, there were news of the Obama administration asking the Supreme Court to not take the Oracle V Google case. That's news. Like big news. We discussed, and left you a nicely typed doc in the shownotes to forward to your congressional representative. Also, someone (Typesafe) is going to the Secretary-of-state and asking for a Name-Change form, just that they are not sure what to fill in just yet. Then we take a skip into the new things happening in the JCP, talk about what works, what can be improved and we end with sharing the story of a language that just happen to turn 20 this past month!

Ooof, we start this podcast with the news that Microsoft is coming to our turf and is introducing their core .net libraries for Mac and Linux. We then dive into this theory of JS being the Bytecode of the web (Java Webstart, you tried). Then we got called "old", as in Cobol old (getoffmyLawn!) to finally talk about Groovy, Grails and what does it mean when a project loses its "home". Always entertaining, with a lot of opinions abound!

The Maiden Voyage of the Off-Heap, as they venture outside of their Java world, and take a look at what's happening Around Java (not just inside). We start by swinging with the Heavy-Hitters and talk about Oracle Vs Google, The values of Tech Interviews, and the End-Of-Life of Java 7 (is it?). Come take a listen to the Coolest Java Technical News podcast out there (we might be biased though).
