So we finally did it! We actually turned on the cameras for you to see us! As we venture into the Video portion of our podcast we picked up on the new cadence from Spring Boot, updates on GraalVM, and Jakarta news.

We also dived into the 25th Year of Java (Happy Birthday!) and discuss, what the next 25 years of Java look like. So stay tuned, take a peek. Subscribe to our Video feed, or if our homely faces scare you, we still have our regular Audio feed!

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)
