So markets are changing, and we have a crazy two years. FAANG and others are really really looking for new developers, and have been poaching any talent they can grab. Even so, winds seem to be changing and a slowdown looms over the horizon. 

So in that spirit, we revisit what is it mean to be in the job market today, and we talk about the advice we can give to those that are looking to either jump to a new opportunity or advance their career. Offering differing perspectives from differing career paths this one is a great one to listen (and re-listen to)

Oh my! So this episode Freddy couldn't be in (He was busy running a Seattle JUG meetup), but have no Fear! As Bob, Michael and Josh took the helm on recording (and making sure that I was red with jealousy at not being there). Covering the news (Javaone is coming!), to the latest topics (Java dead again?) we have a breath of fresh air, and "back to roots" format on how we used to record these. 

So come and start listening to this episode, in the nostalgic format of how we started!

So we did it! We got together at the DevNexus Conference and produced a live show! With Okta's super famous Matt Raible, and of course our own Danno Hinojosa (and Bob and I), we got together and talked Security (what does it mean to be secure in today's day and age and how it has changed from 10 years ago)

So come and enjoy one of our most livelier shows as we quiz Matt and Danno on the most notorious vulnerabilities that has happened in the past 15 years! In all a very fun episode that we get to do live!

So there are slow news month, and there are some months where there's so much news that is hard to comprehend. For one hand, we have seen the world opening up little by little again. There seems to be a good uptick of new in-person conferences and the Java ecosystem keeps moving on!

On the other hand, the world is changing rapidly and unexpectedly, and we find ourselves watching a new war unfold. There are ripples that happen in all parts of the world, and tech is not exempt. In this episode we talk about what's happening in the tech space as the war between Russia and Ukraine unfolds (including companies stopping doing business, and open source vulnerabilities among others)

Ok, so the fun part about being in the Java Ecosystem is that it's always trying new things, and the interesting new "thing" that seems to be happening is the ability to offload your "JIT" (Just In Time) compilation into the Cloud! 

We discuss how this changes (or maybe not?) things, but is interesting to see how we are enhancing our regular "code, build, deploy" to have more complex workflows behind-the-scenes that allow you to become "faster", and more performant (and ultimately save some Cloud $)

We also comb over the news, with the big NVIDIA / ARM deal falling through, costing around 1.25 billion dollars (insert Dr. Evil theme here) since it was done as a deposit for a successful transaction. Our local curdmudgeon offered his services as an money-holder and arbitrer for future NVidia / ARM contracts! (for a much much smaller sum than 1.25 billion).

There are times when there's something in tech that starts brewing, and creating huge waves. We are just going through those times with Bitcoins and now the newly created Non-Fungible-Tokens (or NFT for short). If you have been surrounded by "bored apes", or "lucky goats" and wanted to understand what NFTs are (or aren't), then take a listen! 

In addition we revisit the big npm-libs-colors debacle on which an open source contributor single-handedly sent the javascript world scrambling as he poisoned-pill his own work (what does it mean to rely on open source dependencies from individual contributors?). It's a tough topic because we are really built most of our technology on open source.

Hopefully you have had some time to R&R, but if you were in tech around Dec 2020, you heard that there was this massive security incident around Log4j. It affected almost everyone, from large to small companies, and if you work in Java, chances are that you might've to work on it too (and if you haven't, it's a good idea to double-check your code)

It has a severity of "10", which is rare, and what makes it hard to ignore. If you want to understand what it was about, and how it got there, then take a listen. Learn how to patch against it, as we travel and dive into the mechanics and the missed opportunities that happened.
