Welcome to the Hall of Fame

Victor Grazi joins illustrious Java Champion company

Chris Mayer

A new name gains Java Champion status thanks to his work on JSR 354 and the Java Community Process for Credit Suisse

The equivalent of the New Year’s Honours List, the Java Champion
status denotes an individual’s outstanding contribution to the Java
Community. Currently, there’s around 130 names in Java’s ‘Hall of
Fame’ and now we welcome one more - Java
evangelist Victor

Grazi, who serves on the Executive Committee of the
Java Community Process representing the first non-technical vendor
Credit Suisse, was nominated by his peers ‘for his experience
as a developer, and his work in the Java and Open Source

His expertise in building real-time financial systems led him to
become Spec Lead for the Java Money and Currency
API (JSR 354). On the
community side of things, Grazi also arranges the NY
Java SIG meetings at Credit Suisse’s New York campus each month,
forging invaluable networking opportunities not only for him but
 Grazi has certainly earned his stripes too,
having been building in Java since the heady days of JDK
version 1.02.

He’s also been busy with his own open source project
Java Concurrent
a series of animations that
visualize components in the java.util.concurrent

It’s always great to see some unsung
heroes properly recognised by Oracle for their commitment to
pushing Java forward and Victor Grazi definitely fits the bill.
Congratulations on the accolade.
