Episode 27. Java 9 is out! Java EE to end up at the Eclipse Foundation? And on Breaches

Oh my gosh! When it rain it pours. We have tons of news for this podcast, starting with the actual release of Java 9 (wow, it is finally OUT!). And on the toes of that we have the news that Java EE is going to be moving to the Eclipse Foundation (and outside the JCP)! Lastly we dive into the big Equifax vulnerability (and see what was the vulnerability about). In all, an exciting episode on which we make predictions to the uncharted territory Java is heading towards!

OffHeap's Mark And Sweep Episode 1. Let's hear about the beginning of Java, from its creator James Gosling.


Hello there! We are so excited to bring you into our new segment at OffHeap. Called "Mark And Sweep", we dive into different interviews from notable developers across time. With Ed Burns (author of the Secrets of the RockStar Programmers), and the usual OffHeap crew, we listen, dissect, and comment on these interviews.

Our First episode is none other than James Gosling. He is considered the "Father of Java", and he put the Java language on the map (which was named "Oak" at the beginning). Ed interviewed him for his book a little while ago, and incredibly, a lot of the advice and ideas he mentioned still holds very well today. So come and take a listen on this first pilot episode of Mark And Sweep.

Also, stay tuned for the second episode of Mark And Sweep when Ed, Bob, Michael, Josh and me (Freddy) comment on Chris Wilson (The Browser Architect for Internet Explorer) interview.

Episode 26. On Projects that take 10 years, and let's dive into diversity

Whew, it has been an intense month for IT in general! We dive in our updates (as we are nearing JavaOne), and check on Java 9, Spring 5 and Java EE. After that we dive into IBM's delayed project (and it's owning of 78 million back to the state). We would be remiss if we didn't talk about the hot topic which is of diversity and tolerance in IT (and touch upon the Google's employee manifesto and Charlottesville). In all an episode full of opinion, emotions and interesting sides worth listening to.

Episode 25. On Java EE, a toast for Java.net (RIP), on React (JS), and MVCs

Oh boy, so we dive into this episode figuring out what's going on with Java EE 8 (and 9), pay our respects to java.net (it's now decommissioned), dive into Kotlin (this one seems to stick), and then discuss how JS is not as wild-west as it used to be (and some MVC pattern disagreements). In all, entertaining, and interesting podcast.

Episode 24. Nothing like Sweet Home Chicago. A GoTo Conference episode with Georges Saab, Ed Burns, James Weaver and Dean Wampler

You read that right! We were invited to GoTo Chicago to record Java OffHeap live! And we went into it with gusto, first talking with Georges Saab (@gsaab) and Ed Burns (@edburns) on the Future of Java, and then diving in with James Weaver (@javaFXpert) and Dean Wampler (@deanwampler) 2on the current Java News, including microservices and javascript. A big episode, but worth listening to!

Episode 23. object.finalize() is deprecated! Privacy issues w/your ISP, and MicroServices are still in the news!

So Deprecation is getting serious! Nobody should be using object.finalize(), and if you are, shame on you! This deprecation will have some bite! Also, we just heard the rumours. If you use an Internet Service Provider in the US, that means they can sell all the information about you (yikes!). Lastly, there has been a new MicroServices survey out there and we want to take a look and see what's shaking (and who is shaking) the ever-evolving microservices world.

Episode 22. Atlanta is Great! DevNexus is Awesome, and we have a great Trivia game with Ted Neward and Chris Richardson

We made it! After taking a short flight, and re-assembling the crew in Atlanta, we finally made it to DevNexus, the conference run by Atlanta Java User Group. DevNexus is not just a great conference in itself, but it's a great place to run and talk to top tier speakers without breaking the bank. We did our own talking by running into Ted Neward (@tedneward) and Chris Richardson (@crichardson)! We actually manage to sucker-punch them into playing a little game of Trivia with us! At the end, we explore if the Cloud the new Mainframe, and came to some interesting conclusions. An episode like no other, you definitively need to listen to this one!
