What a great 2007! Lets do more in 2008!

Posted by thejavafinch on January 10, 2008 at 2:09 PM PST

So, in 2007 I traveled to several places. Visiting Java User Groups in many cities and countries, I saw lots of my best friends Java User Group leaders and members all over the world. I also made lots of new friends, large and small!

During the year I gave a talk at JavaOne (hopefully the first talk ever done by a bird) and was even featured on national television in Brazil.

I visited the Czech Republic last year, where I met the guys from NetBeans and was even invited to be part of the NetBeans 5.5 launch party.

Open Source Projects at JavaPolis

Posted by thejavafinch on February 5, 2007 at 8:59 AM PST

JavaPolis was a great event, and I wanted to learn about open source projects. Is there a better way to learn then to go talk with the people responsible for the projects?

Talking with Mark Reinhold, I learned that JDK 6 was released and that OpenJDK was open sourced.

Mark Reinhold and Heather VanCura - discussing the future of Java at JavaPolis

Once Java SE 6 was released, I took my chances and went directly to the man in charge, to ask him what he liked most about it. Must admit, that was not the answer I expected... Mark twisted my little bird brain!

Need to apologize that the sound came out bad, bad, bad...

The Finch Wire News: Open Source Java

Posted by thejavafinch on November 20, 2006 at 7:15 PM PST

On the day Sun announced it was releasing its Java implementation under an open source license, I set out to interview Duke on his thoughs about it.

The interview didn't go as I expected, but, as a good reporter, I made the best of the situation, and I took the time to meet the most important players on the Open Source Java arena.

Have Fun!
