Tim Bray on what’s next in Java Web development

After some years of relative stability, Java-based Web application development is in a season of innovation. In this JavaWorld podcast, Andrew Glover talks with Sun Microsystems’ Director of Web Technologies Tim Bray about forces for change in the Web development and deployment space. Tune in for Bray’s inside perspective on current trends in Java Web development, including the long-term outlook for dynamic languages on the JVM, new ideas about data persistence and storage, the "outrageously, obscenely hard" problem of concurrency, and what Bray calls the "sweet spot" of cloud computing: platform as service.

  1. Rails Podcast Brasil, QCon Special - Ola Bini (JRuby, Ioke) Part 1

    Finally, I was able to finish all the interviews I intended. The last one was with Ola Bini. It was weird because we started recording yesterday and continued today. The problem was that my recorder died out of battery :-(

    So, in the end we did a 2 part interview, with almost 1 hour each. You will agree that this is the geekiest interview ever. It was actually more of a lecture, with Ola Bini explaining every conceivable programming technique and paradigm in the book. Seriously.

    We went through Lisp, Erlang, F#, Haskell, Java, Self, ML, Ruby, Python, Javascript, Io and much more. It was a very intense conversation so make yourself prepared for an overdose of language geekiness discussion.

    I had 2 goals in mind with this. First, to introduce many programming concepts before talking about Ola’s new language implemented on top of the JVM: Ioke, a Io-inspired language, prototype-based, highly dynamic, based on Io, Lisp, Ruby. This language is way cool, you should experiment with it

    The second goal was to show people that there is this whole world out there, outside of plain Java or C#. And another thing was to not show a white-bearded senior developer like Kent Beck or Tim Bray :-) No offense, but it is accidentally convenient for me that Ola is so young (early 20’s), because now young CS students doesn’t have the ‘age’ excuse for not knowing all of these concepts already.

  3. Java Spotlight Episode 150: James Gosling on Java

    James Gosling received a BSc in Computer Science from the University of Calgary, Canada in 1977. He received a PhD in Computer Science from Carnegie-Mellon University in 1983. The title of his thesis was "The Algebraic Manipulation of Constraints". He spent many years as a VP & Fellow at Sun Microsystems. He has built satellite data acquisition systems, a multiprocessor version of Unix, several compilers, mail systems and window managers. He has also built a WYSIWYG text editor, a constraint based drawing editor and a text editor called `Emacs’ for Unix systems. At Sun his early activity was as lead engineer of the NeWS window system. He did the original design of the Java programming language and implemented its original compiler and virtual machine. He has been a contributor to the Real-Time Specification for Java, and a researcher at Sun labs where his primary interest was software development tools. He then was the Chief Technology Officer of Sun’s Developer Products Group and the CTO of Sun’s Client Software Group. He briefly worked for Oracle after the acquisition of Sun. After a year off, he spent some time at Google and is now the chief software architect at Liquid Robotics where he spends his time writing software for the Waveglider, an autonomous ocean-going robot.
