OffHeap 50. A Milestone! Recorded live at DevNexus, and talked about Google, APIs, and Continuing Education for Java Devs

Getting everyone on a stage and geeking out with an audience makes for an amazing episode. We had a special guest Jeanne Boyarsky and discussed Hibernate + Graal, Google involvement in Open Source, and Oracle claiming everyone wants copywrited APIs (spoiler alert, we don’t). We also played a fun game of “What’s that Acronym”.

We then dive into a big discussion on Continuing Education for us Java Developers, including Java Certificates, Bootcamps, and other ways for us to either get into or update our info in the field. Does Certification make sense? Should you try a BootCamp? Come and take a listen as we explore the interesting and winding road of self-actualization.

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!
