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? We then tackle Facebook and its privacy concerns and wonder, do we, as developers have a responsibility to help prevent this? Overall, a very charged episode worth listening!

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!
