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!

Episode 21. Java 9 is coming! And we're leaving things behind (also, does US immigration affect Devs, and how?)

Ah, well, it has been promised, and it WILL be delivered. Java 9 is feature complete! And we start taking a look at what is (http/2 finally?), and more importantly, what was cut-off from the release. We also did dive into what does it means when developers can't migrate to the US. Is it good for our industry? Or is it meh, as people just telecommute? And as long as we're talking policy we touched on Net Neutrality since it might be an issue this year. Do we have to say goodbye to those millions and millions of undeterred bit streams?
We're going to be doing a live performance at DevNexus!. If you happen to go in Feb, come and join us there!

Episode 20. It's the End of the Year! Let's recap! and Oh noes, seems some FUD is coming our way from the Register?!

So the end of 2016 is upon us! And as such we should take a little time to reflect on what a year we had. Of course, before diving into that we gotta talk about the infamous article by the Register telling us Oracle is coming to charge us for Java (gasp!) by using some misworded (or misleading) headlines.

Also, Gartner is telling us that there are no Java EE Application Servers? True/false? We talk about it and let you decide!

Lastly we go into those conferences that we are going to try to make it this year, including a live performance at DevNexus!. If you happen to go in Feb, come and join us there!

Episode 19. We live in interesting times (A Trump election, Tiobe Index, and Thoughtworks Tech Radar!)

Oh boy, We just finished recording this episode after the US Presidential elections, and like everything else, we are shock-and-awed about the results. Nevertheless we dive into what does it mean for Technology (and Java) having a Trump term. Would it be better for tech, what do we know about his policies, or is really Business as Usual? We also dive into the current Tiobe index, and visit Toughtworks Technology radar! (Docker is now moved to Adopt, and sunsetting Jenkins? huh?)

Episode 18. We're back from J1! And Brough Reza Rahman to talk about the Big Reveal on Java EE 8

It was a great JavaOne, full of news and mystery. Netbeans becomes part of Apache (or at least it's on its way to be), and Oracle finally revealed what their big plan is for Java EE 8 (and asking about 9)! Do we hang up the "Mission Accomplished" banner? Did the Guardians did it? Come join us as we talk with Reza on what this new state of affairs mean for Java EE, the JCP, The Guardians, and Microprofile.io (and yes! @mminella has been unblocked!)
