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.
