Tom Marble, Sun's OpenJDK Ambassador,
discusses recent hacking with OpenJDK,
performance benchmarking tools, the
importance of copyright law for
developers, tae kwon do, and more.
Please take a look at my latest "Meet the Engineer" Q&A . Tom's job is to facilitate the growth of the OpenJDK community in an effort to promote Java technology ubiquity, compatibility, adoption, and innovation. He's busy serving as a bridge with the OpenJDK community by articulating the objectives of external developers to internal Sun teams,
and by explaining Sun's interests to the community.
If anyone has information that needs to go in either direction, pleaselet Tom know.
Tom has interesting things to say about the latest OpenJDK hacking, benchmarking, copyright law, and tae kwon do (he's a black belt candidate).
