[Atlanta JUG DevCon] Jim Waldo – Notes From the Java Frontier

Jim Waldo is one of Sun’s techie guys, a researcher, not a product or marketing guy. He’s sharing the “challenges” of open sourcing Java, citing interoperability as a potentially competing interest. The session is mostly a somewhat interesting rah-rah session for what we have accomplished in the developer industry, what Sun and Java have accomplished, and where we’re going. Not a bad presentation for a pep rally, but not much meat here either.
