I just finished watching this great video of a presentation of Joshua Bloch did at JavaPolis about API design. Yeah, Josh is the author of the must read book Effective Java and actually is working on a second editition. The presentation is titled „How to Design a Good API and Why it Matters“.
It is not that long ago that I wrote an Open Letter to Sun about Java on Linux urging Sun to provide better integration of Java on Linux. It looks like I was not the only one pushing and Sun surely made a splash last weekend.
Following my article about my
Impressions from the Sun Developer Day in Vancouver
we had a longer discussion about the day on the VanJUG
I found that quite a few other developer also find Java integration on Linux to be appalling. We need to get this fixed!
Wow. What an exciting day. Time sure flew by. It all started with great weather and
an awesome flight on the seaplane from downtown Victoria to downtown Vancouver. After
all Victoria is only the capital of BC and Vancouver is the big city with all the busy
developers, so thats where the developer day got to be ;-)
The evangelists are coming to town. James Gosling and others are making their way to BC and will be at the Sun Developer Days in Vancouver. Yeah – I know. They should really come to beautiful Victoria. No choice about that though. You might have to hop on that seaplane or hit the ferry. Don’t miss the opportunity. The event is FREE! Check it out and register!
See you there – Manfred
Thanks to VanJUG for their involvement in organising this event.
