So aside from being all giddy about Java 17 LTS release, we take now a deep dive on the changes that Oracle announced on their release schedule and Licensing. WANL (We are not Lawyers) but that didn't stop us from discussing what could it mean, and where would it go!

Faster LTS, we are onboard. It's fun to be able to jump from LTS to LTS, but what does that mean for older releases and maintainability (as Oracle longstanding policy is to sunset the "oldest" of LTS when a new one comes out). We see the interesting dynamics on this with the new "Oracle No Fee Terms and Conditions", and what does that mean for Big Red's plan for our favorite programming language.

In all, an interesting episode to pay attention to (and to know what's important). Like all Licenses, do talk to a real lawyer before adopting a new license (we really are just code monkeys that managed to wrestle a microphone). Or go with another Java open source binary provider on the standard licenses (Like Adoptium!)

Allright, on this OffHeap Episode, we invited no other than @kenkousen to talk us about his new book. Helping your Boss Help You! As most of us are really underlings and have managers that we report to, Ken walk us through the things that he discovered work well (and shared stories of what didn't work so well) in a full-on, completely stuffed episode of OffHeap.

We also dive into some of our tech news around Project Loom and Apple Surveillance. All in all, a very interesting, possibly life-changing episode of OffHeap

Color me jealous! Most of the OffHeap crew (excepting me, Freddy) went back to our roots, and recorded Java Off Heap at the RoundHouse! (The local bar, where Episode 1 was recorded!). It was a great opportunity to be mostly zoom-less and let the conversation flow whenever it wants to flow!

In addition we got Cedric Hurst (@divideby0) to join us there! In all an interesting evening, with libations, Boston Dynamics Acquisition, a deep discussion on the "Right to Repair", and the implications of GitHub Copilot (the auto-filler AI-powered, FOSS trained helper) on this field!

So new things are happening! Jakarta EE 9.1 was released, GraalVM got to 21.1, and Spring Native is now at 0.10.

We also get a new LightBend CEO (what does this mean?), and the favorite developer Copy-Paste Website (StackOverflow) got bought for (insert Dr. Evil voice here) ONE (.8) BILLION DOLLARS. You didn't hear it first here, BUT we sure talk about what does this mean! (Remember ExpertsExchange?)

Lastly we dive into a deep discussion on Ransomware and security and how all these things we work everyday can, and are affected by it. Why some companies are keeping up, others are letting security slide, and more importantly, for us as Developers, what kind of role we play on these things.

A passionate discussion on which we touch many points and explore our involvement on this field!

Right, there were a good tricle of tech news like the release of Scala 3, and that now Microsoft is part of the OpenJDK (hm… we wonder if the JClarity acquision had anything to do w/that ;). But the Internet was rocked by a big tidal wave of D&I avoidance, Social pressure (but some would say Cancel Culture?) and selective historical facts.

In that we dive to explore what has dominated the tech twitter feeds, facebook post, and essentially comment on the unbelievebable nuclear explosion (implosion in the case of Basecamp) that just happened. With the advent of Basecamp’s new policy (and the pyramid of hate), and the follow-up en-masse resignations, then Apple’s offer, twice rescinded to Antonio Garcia Martinez, to finally the Electronic Frontier Foundation inclusion of Dr. Stallman back on the board (on which, his past is either forgiven, or forgotten) this episode dives into how it got to here, and we piece together how these bungled-up situation blew up in the twittersphere

Come take a listen and tour with us the reality of being in tech today! Start listening now for a riveting episode ride!

Ok, 60 episodes ago, back when were were young and innocent, we started this podcast with coverage on the copyrightability of APIs. There were twist...there were turns! And a ton of nail-biting moments, but, finally it seems that the Supreme Court made a ruling (that APIs are not copyrightable)

In this episode we cover the timeline, the ruling, and the possible effects it means for all of us developers, starting on the original days of Sun, and then going all the way to April 5th. We are not lawyers but pundits, and as such, we engage in punditry as we dissect what the Supreme Court ruling said (is it narrow? overarching? did they get the analogy right?)

Would this turn out to be a George-Lucas moment where there will be more litigation? Episode VII, VIII or IX? or a Jar-Jar Binks moment? We don't know, but we sure be covering them if they happen in our watch!

Hey y'all, well, this episode we dive into tons of fun stuff. There are new toys w/JDK 16, Spring Native and Graal. Essentially, it's a fun time to play with Native and new JDK 16 features (Records are mainstream!).

And in a one-two punch, Spring Native release of 0.9, and Graal news of adopting truffle makes the ideal of adopting native images for your Java builds not far-fetched. It might have still some rough edges, but oh my, for some projects, it went from being painful, to a non-issue. So yeah. Millisecond startup times coming up!

Micronaut is also out with 2.4.0, which we think is actually healthy! (we worried for a second or two). And Microprofile also has a release, with its LRA (and SAGA! pattern). We really wished SAGA was an acronym

In addition some interesting consolidation happening with Crowdstrike buying Humio, and Okta acquiring Auth0. Interesting moves in security and authentication to say the least.

We see how deep SolarWinds go with blaming an intern for their security woes. If that's your strategy, you already lost at the security game (shame!)

And lastly, oh my, there is an Outlook vulnerability making its rounds. Important enough to hear (and patch!). You don't want weird inetpub/wwwroot files hanging in your outlook server.

Many things are happening this year. With the official end of the Adobe Flash era, we take a dive on the current landscape including Netbeans, Microprofile 4.0, the alledged Russia Cyber attack of Jetbrains Software, and then into the huge sway that social media platforms have.

We dive deeply into how the bans of twitter accounts, hosting providers, and social media tends to shape society, and realize how huge technology is for managing these. We see how it relates to the US's concept of Freedom of speech (and what it / what isn't freedom of speech). An very charged episode with a lot of opinions on technology and censorship. Definitively entertaining!

That's right folks, we are (finally) saying goodbye (and good riddance to 2020), so in the tradition of OffHeap we review the year. From having 2 Java releases, to the move of OpenJDK to github and how tech has been changed by the Pandemic we talk about it all.

We also see what's coming up on for 2021, including Project Loom (and what does THAT mean for Reactive Programming), new LTS in our hands (Java 17) and Spring 6! In all, this next year looks like is going to be so much fun!

So kick, back, relax, sip your favorite beverage, and enjoy our end-of-the-year Episode.

So JFrog made it big! (and we congratulate them!) as they are now a publicly traded company!

and because GitHub is paying attention, they are now rolling out Container Registries! (This will help a ton for those in the Docker world)

Java 15 is out as well, with all the goodies of a short term cadence (Preview of Sealed Classes, Records, Z Garbage Collector and more!)

In addition, have you ever been curious about the JVM Source Code, well, they are finally in GitHub! So go ahead, explore, download, build and play!

Lastly we fumbled a prediction on why there was a Micronaut Foundation... Well, we know now. Graeme Rocher just joined Oracle. (which would make it super interesting to see the life expectancy of Micronaut)

First comes hate(rs), then comes committers.
Then comes a tag, in the github app
reporting its woes,
committing new code
doing the hula hula dance!

Ok, so one of the biggest stories is that blooming collaboration (romance?) that's happening between Spring and Graal. Yep, the most popular framework is teaming up with the hottest VM in town (this sounds like a movie script already!). We also dive into some unexpected releasers like Jython 2.7.2, new leadership for the ASF (And its board of directors), and a game of "where in the world is Istio (not Carmen Sandiego) going?" played by Google. In all, with drinks in hand, on remote, a fun episode to listen to.

Ok, so the world is not the same as it used to be. We woke up one day and became remote workers. How does this affect our day-to-day, and what does it mean for the Java Ecosystem. Come join us as we discuss the woes of the crew juggling kids, family, work, and social distancing. Some are natural introverts (but not all!) and how the stay-in-place orders are affecting them, including some work-from-home tips from our crew!

We also cover the latest news, and yeah! JDK14 is now released! (so if you have some extra time in your hands, play with Records). In all, a quarantined-episode worth hearing about!

Getting everyone on a stage and geeking out with an audience makes for an amazing episode. We had a special guest Jeanne Boyarsky and discussed Hibernate + Graal, Google involvement in Open Source, and Oracle claiming everyone wants copywrited APIs (spoiler alert, we don't). We also played a fun game of "What's that Acronym".

We then dive into a big discussion on Continuing Education for us Java Developers, including Java Certificates, Bootcamps, and other ways for us to either get into or update our info in the field. Does Certification make sense? Should you try a BootCamp? Come and take a listen as we explore the interesting and winding road of self-actualization.

Ah, we got together with our usual suspects, and while our local Curmudgeon was enjoying his Old-fashioned, I was enjoying Cold Medicine. Even so, we went through the biggest events that happened this year, including the Oracle v Google debacle, The new copy-and-kill strategies from cloud providers, the proliferation of Java implementations, the re-emergence of Eclipse Foundation as a home for standards, and of course, the Java EE (reincarnated as Jakarta EE) saga.

It has been a great year, and we couldn't have made it with our listeners. Thanks for listening to our podcasts. We have expanded our OffHeap family, so don't forget to check all of our podcasts. And you can always drop off a line @offheap (https://twitter.com/offheap)

Oh Goody, this is the first episode after coming back from both OracleCodeOne and ApacheCon... and things are happening! First off we start that Oracle JDBC Drivers are FINALLY in Maven Central (hey, missed the mark for a couple of years). We then dive into Jakarta EE 9 updates, including Oracle's position on the "Big Bang" approach to the namespace changes (Hint, you WILL be affected by this, even when you think you aren't).

We then look at Java SE 13 (Woohoo!), and that we can finally have Text Blocks (yeah, go crazy with that Json String), and look at Java SE 14 Early builds (including Helpful NullPointerExceptions). Spring is in the news as their Conference SpringOne went underway, and we talk about OracleCodeOne and ApacheCon (good, bad, bust?)

Lastly we cover Unionizing Tech Workers and what could it mean to our industry, and we end up by setting the record straight on an article that seems to imply IBM is divesting in Java (This is a far cry from the truth).

In all, a fun and great episode to listen while having a beer.

Oh gosh, there's so much news going around, beginning with Microsoft acquiring JClarity (and all that brain trust that comes w/it!). Martinj Verburg, Kirk Pepperdine, and Ben Evans are household names when it comes to Java (including their efforts on spinning and maintaining AdoptOpenJDK.net). It shows that Microsoft is serious, and they want to invest in a big way in the Java Ecosystem

And of course! This is one of the few episodes where our local Curmudgeon (@michaelminella) won't be talking too much on the following topic, since VMWare came back and bought Pivotal (again!). We are pretty sure that VMWare just wanted Michael back, but they had to buy the whole Pivotal to do so.

And then we check up on JavaFX, which its alive and well, thanks to many contributors, but one company is really putting tons of effort and making it a first-class citizen of the Java Ecosystem. GluonHQ! As an old Swing developer, I relish that while web is good, there's still something around desktop (and native-like mobile) applications.

And we ended up with a big discussion on the Tampere University Study, called "Does Code Quality Affect Pull Request Acceptance? An empirical study". We all have different opinions on it as we come from way different backgrounds. In all, an interesting discussion that reveals what we tend to forget, that Coding is a social activity!

In all a jam-packed episode with great news, announcements, and punditry. Take a listen now! (and if you can, buy us a beer!)

Ah, "cloud wars" are getting interesting (we claim dibs on the movie title!). With Oracle losing their bid w/the Pentagon, and Microsoft also reaching out and partnering with Oracle, there is tons of interest in what's going on.

But that's not all! The twitters was set aflame by the 10x Developer twitter that has been going around (for the record, we think is mostly nonsense), and we dive into a hilarious take on what 10x developers are supposed to be.

We also dive into Gil Tene's OpenJDK Mystery meat, and the threat of "just taking the latest Docker image". It's a sobering thought that sometimes even when you see the version of OpenJDK, it might not be the right thing due to the OS packaging, which in turn becomes a Docker reference image. In all a troubling precedent specially when Common Vulnerabilies and Exposures (CVE) are concerned.

Lastly, there are predictions that Python is going to overtake Java as the most used language in the TIOBE index. Of course this crowd will not just take that proclamation laying down. So we went into a heated discussion why and how it is (in our humble opinion) a little rushed to say that python is going to overtake Java in mere four years.

Tons of punditry, enough beer, and a whole lotta entertainment in this episode, so what'cha waiting for? Start listening now!

Oh snap! so The Apache Roadshow just happened, and we armed our own Bob with all our podcasting equipment, unload him at the roadshow, gave him a couple of beers, and turned the mics on! Recorded live from the bar we go into the interesting news (Java 13 is EA now), to the unfathomable (Jakara EE can't update, change, or enhance the "javax" space), to a great discussion with Gris Cuevas on D&I.

In all, the collective Jakarta EE community jaws dropped once we heard that Oracle would not permit the evolution of the Javax package space. What does it mean for the community? What are the steps to evolve? Should we band-aid it, or just rip it off and move to the new space? Oh boy, and if you don't think that this will affect you since you don't use Java EE, let us mention...JAX-B, or JAX-RS.... or Java EE Security, or JSP.. or websockets... all of these are rolled into Java EE.

So take a listen as we navigate this new and perilous world of Jakarta EE, while we also explore, what Apache, Google and others are doing to better our industry's D & I. In all, an episode to not miss!

Oh my, we take a break for a month, and things happen! We start with the news of the day (JDK 12 is General Availability, so go and download it today!). F5 buys NginX which brings more consolidation in the web appliance/software space, and there is a new Continuous Delivery Foundation! (What does it means for all of us devopsy folks)

Then we dive into some interesting developments in ElasticSearch! You might have been using it, and even contributed to it, but may have not realized that some parts are actually commercial in nature. Amazon is releasing a purely "Free as in Free beer" ElasticSearch Open Distro where there's no confusion on what's commercial, since there's nothing commercial in it. It makes it harder for Elastic to make a buck, but maybe there might be a different monetization model for them? All in all, an exciting episode on how the open source community and for-profit companies are trying to find when the line is being crossed.

Episode 43. JCP: Hold my (white) Wine. The JCP welcomes the competition of Eclipse Foundation on spec creation + A recap on Reactive. Ah, DevNexus 2019! One of the better conferences to attend in the U.S. We ended up running our yearly offheap show in there with special guests Heather VanCura, and Ben Hale! We went through the deep questions on the role of JCP (now that Eclipse Foundation Spec Process is in town), and Heather replied that the JCP is agile, knows what they've been doing for a while, and that is still THE Source for Java Spec creation! Indeed, these are intertesting times!

We also dove deeply on the current state of Reactive (and what Pivotal is doing to make it easier for everyone to embrace it). We got to hear about R2DBC, when to go Reactive, and what is a good criteria for adoption (hint: Don't go and rewrite your large app in reactive just because).

To top it off, we ended up with a "Who wants to be a millionaire quiz" where we pitted our guests against our (somewhat tricky) quiz questions. All for the privilege of winning an OffHeap Mug!. In all, a great episode, with tons of information and interesting guests!

Episode 42. Move over JCP! There's a new Specs Maintaining Organization in town with Eclipse Foundation Spec Process. Oh goody, this episode is special in many ways! First, I got to travel to Chicago, and meet in-person with our usual suspects. We went to the bar where everything started, and we recorded our 42th episode in-person! (very Douglas Adams). But aside from the reminiscing, we actually got the Executive Director of The Eclipse Foundation to go on the record on what's happening with Eclipse Foundation and Jakarta EE! We went into what does it mean to have the Eclipse Foundation Spec Process (and how is that affect the JCP), and dove into maintainers, and the future of Jakarta EE (Glassfish is released!).

All in all, an incredible episode, with "you-heard-it-here-first" content. Go ahead an play. Also, a big shoutout to Dr. Heinz Kabutz who plugged our podcast in his newsletter. If you haven't subscribed to it, you definitively should! His Java newsletter is unparalleled and is always full of excelent topics and Java tips/trick. A must for every Java developer.

Oh my, we start by going over the current Oracle Women Pay Lawsuit (really Oracle?) and we dive into the big spat MongoDB and Amazon are having about their cloud licensing (Amazon is winning). What does it mean for other open source contenders? Did Mongo needed to protect its product as it did? Was it worth it? We explore these and more repercussions as Jeff Bezos executes on its cloud lock-in strategy
