OffHeap 74. Back at the Bar (Roundhouse)

Oh my! So this episode Freddy couldn’t be in (He was busy running a Seattle JUG meetup), but have no Fear! As Bob, Michael and Josh took the helm on recording (and making sure that I was red with jealousy at not being there). Covering the news (Javaone is coming!), to the latest topics (Java dead again?) we have a breath of fresh air, and “back to roots” format on how we used to record these.

So come and start listening to this episode, in the nostalgic format of how we started!

OffHeap 72. There’s a war going on…what does it mean for tech?

So there are slow news month, and there are some months where there’s so much news that is hard to comprehend. For one hand, we have seen the world opening up little by little again. There seems to be a good uptick of new in-person conferences and the Java ecosystem keeps moving on!

On the other hand, the world is changing rapidly and unexpectedly, and we find ourselves watching a new war unfold. There are ripples that happen in all parts of the world, and tech is not exempt. In this episode we talk about what’s happening in the tech space as the war between Russia and Ukraine unfolds (including companies stopping doing business, and open source vulnerabilities among others)

OffHeap 68. Facebook is in hot-water…again (very Meta)

So we are technologist, and we create technology, and we live on it… technology on its own is neither good or evil…but what happens when a corporation dives into that gray are of how technology is used? We discuss what it means to have such a big influence in how people get their news, interact with each other, and at what point you can’t just say “I don’t want to interfere”

A very pundit-adept topic, we discuss what could possibly be done to help the issue of misinformation while also balancing the need to be heard.

Episode 49. End of Year Review… Oh, my, it has been an interesting year.

Ah, we got together with our usual suspects, and while our local Curmudgeon was enjoying his Old-fashioned, I was enjoying Cold Medicine. Even so, we went through the biggest events that happened this year, including the Oracle v Google debacle, The new copy-and-kill strategies from cloud providers, the proliferation of Java implementations, the re-emergence of Eclipse Foundation as a home for standards, and of course, the Java EE (reincarnated as Jakarta EE) saga.

It has been a great year, and we couldn’t have made it with our listeners. Thanks for listening to our podcasts. We have expanded our OffHeap family, so don’t forget to check all of our podcasts. And you can always drop off a line @offheap (https://twitter.com/offheap)

Episode 48. On Jakarta EE 9 Band-aids, OracleCodeOne Debrief, Unionizing Tech, IBM vs Microsoft and Oracle JDBC Drivers!

Oh Goody, this is the first episode after coming back from both OracleCodeOne and ApacheCon… and things are happening! First off we start that Oracle JDBC Drivers are FINALLY in Maven Central (hey, missed the mark for a couple of years). We then dive into Jakarta EE 9 updates, including Oracle’s position on the “Big Bang” approach to the namespace changes (Hint, you WILL be affected by this, even when you think you aren’t).

We then look at Java SE 13 (Woohoo!), and that we can finally have Text Blocks (yeah, go crazy with that Json String), and look at Java SE 14 Early builds (including Helpful NullPointerExceptions). Spring is in the news as their Conference SpringOne went underway, and we talk about OracleCodeOne and ApacheCon (good, bad, bust?)

Lastly we cover Unionizing Tech Workers and what could it mean to our industry, and we end up by setting the record straight on an article that seems to imply IBM is divesting in Java (This is a far cry from the truth).

In all, a fun and great episode to listen while having a beer.

Episode 46. On Clouds, 10x Developers, JDK Mystery Meats, and Python bytes!

Ah, “cloud wars” are getting interesting (we claim dibs on the movie title!). With Oracle losing their bid w/the Pentagon, and Microsoft also reaching out and partnering with Oracle, there is tons of interest in what’s going on.

But that’s not all! The twitters was set aflame by the 10x Developer twitter that has been going around (for the record, we think is mostly nonsense), and we dive into a hilarious take on what 10x developers are supposed to be.

We also dive into Gil Tene’s OpenJDK Mystery meat, and the threat of “just taking the latest Docker image”. It’s a sobering thought that sometimes even when you see the version of OpenJDK, it might not be the right thing due to the OS packaging, which in turn becomes a Docker reference image. In all a troubling precedent specially when Common Vulnerabilies and Exposures (CVE) are concerned.

Lastly, there are predictions that Python is going to overtake Java as the most used language in the TIOBE index. Of course this crowd will not just take that proclamation laying down. So we went into a heated discussion why and how it is (in our humble opinion) a little rushed to say that python is going to overtake Java in mere four years.

Tons of punditry, enough beer, and a whole lotta entertainment in this episode, so what’cha waiting for? Start listening now!

Episode 40. Oh What a Year…Hystrix is gone, Eclipse can now do specs, and we just toast for 2018.

That’s it folks, we say goodbye to an interesting 2018, where we look back at release trains (we started on Java 9, now we are at 11), mergers (Microsoft + Github, and IBM + Redhat) and past conferences (JavaOne is no more).

And after that we put our gipsy hats and gaze into the future. Will the Train Release keep delivering? And is the OpenJDK in risk of fragmenting (more)? We speculate and keep the punditry going for the last closer of an episode.
