A Wide News Network

We have a wide network of Java movers and shakers so we have a leg-up getting you the inside scoop on what’s going on

Fresh Perspectives

We are not kidding when we say that while we share the same common language all of us use it in very different situations. A podcast like no other, we tend to see more than one viewpoint on each episode

Industry Guests

We not only talk about the current Java News, but also bring guests to the show so you can hear from them exactly what’s happening around our great Java Ecosystem.

Show Hosts

We are four friends that happened to have passionate Java Conversations. That was easy. We just then added a mic, and turned it on. The rest is history!

Freddy Guime

The leader of the gang. Freddy is the one who turned on the mic, and record the fireworks that happen when discussing Java News. Previously on Java SE, and now working for a big Enterprise firm, he is now part of your Everyday Enterprise Developer.

Bob Paulin

Our in-resident Java Consultant and Open Source Advocate, Bob brings the views (and tribulations) when looking through a seasoned Consultant's eye. Most of all, he's a big Apache Foundation contributor

Try getting him to sign an NDA, and...stand...back.

Michael Minella

Our in-resident Curmudgeon, Michael leads Pivotal's Spring Batch. He tends to call a spade-a-spade, and is the most opinionated of the regular show hosts.

Tired of the sugarcoated news? Michael is your guy

Josh Juneau

Working in a quasi-governmental institution Josh give us the perspective of public sector projects. An advocate for Standards, he is intimately involved with the Adopt-a-JSR efforts, and thrives in "anything" Java EE related.
