Episode 34. On twitter, IPOs, vulnerabilities, (Java)script name copyrights, and IBMs play on JVM Maintenance

So we start with Twitter news (change your password) to then dive into exciting news this month. There are a couple of notable IPOs and Aquisition including @pivotal, and @smartsheet. (Congrats!). We then take a detour onto Mesosphere raising $125 million (and talk about if all these valuations feel right?) to then see Cambridge Analytica disbanded. Oh, and think twice about naming something with "Java" in your app as Oracle seems to flexing more Copyright muscle. Lastly we see a new play from IBM where they will provide support for OpenJDK's OpenJ9. What does this mean for Oracle and their commercial support? Only time will tell. But that doesn't stop us from speculating about it! So take a listen to a fully charged Java OffHeap!

Episode 33. Oracle vs Google, US Vs Microsoft, and now you can keep your salary a secret

We start this podcast swinging, looking like a 80's boxing series, we are in round 5 of Oracle vs Google (we just offer a small update). Then we dive into a new California ruling that's taking the tech world by storm (Wage history cannot be used to discriminate against minorities), and lastly we land into US vs Microsoft, which dropped their lawsuit because of the recently passed CLOUD act...Not a good thing. So take a listen as we dive into all of these topics while introducing a new pundit (Janine Patterson) to the group!

Episode 32. On Java10, the next internet bubble and data breaches!

Yes, #Java10 is out, and #Java11 is on early release! Join us as we dive into Salesforce acquiring Mulesoft (at a cool 6.5 billion), and wonder...is the next tech bubble here?

Episode 31. Welcome to ATLANTA! (DevNexus 2018)

Oh yeah! We went down to Atlanta again to experience DevNexus (which is probably the second largest US Java Conference). Causing trouble yet again, we set shop and hoodwinked speakers to talk to us an enter our DevNexus Game Show. Always entertaining, with @tedneward, @startbuxman, @dblevins and @TonyaRaeMoore you can expect the most hilarious answers to the question "I admit it...The room I actually develop my best code is ____" (and many more). So take a listen, have a beer (or tip us one), and enjoy this episode of OffHeap from the great land of Atlanta!

Episode 30. On Meltdowns, Payara, and the state of Java EE (with Eclipse's Executive Director Mike Milinkovich)

What an eventful time for being a Software developer. We got a Meltdown, and a Spectre in our field to begin with, and we also have some interesting news brewing from Payara. But most importantly we secured an interview with no other than Eclipse Foundation's own Executive Director Mike Milinkovich! He takes us into an inner tour of what's going on with JavaEE (and the handoff between Oracle and the Eclipse Foundation). We talked on all topics EE, including namespaces, future names, clarifications on what is being open sourced and the relevancy of the JCP in today's climate. In all, even if you think you don't use Java EE (hint...you are probably using specs that are surviving under the EE umbrella...Json much?) you should take a listen!

Episode 29. On SpringOne, EE4J, and Oh, gosh, we just lost Net Neutrality!

So we got our crew reporting on SpringOne and what has happened over there (IBM is working "very" closely with Pivotal!). Then we discuss a little of EE4J (the notes from Mike Milinkovich), to then dive into something affecting everyone that lives (or works with) the US. Yes, we are talking deep about Net Neutrality and how can it change the dynamics on how we work and what we do! So take a listen, an important episode for sure
